Hi, hola, Bonjour! Yo soy Jackie Diaz and welcome to my space. I am a Latin Pop-Culture Entertainment Journalist from Miami, bueno Hialeah. I always tell people that I am a latin guajira because I love Country Music just as much as I love Kumbia. I just love music, PERIOD!
I wanted to create a space where I can share all of my creative projects, celebrity interviews, humor & my love for food and travel. This website is meant to spread kindness, empowerment, positivity, laughs and of course entertainment!
A little about my profession:
I currently freelance as a journalist with Vibras TV- an online Latinx Pop-Culture Website dedicated to young Latin Americans.
I worked at Channel 7 in Miami for 7 years and then quit to pursue my dream as a journalist. I then found a job as an entertainment reporter for an online digital platform.
Since then, I have had the privilege to cover a few red carpet events & the most recent was Univision’s 32nd annual Premio Lo Nuestro , Univision’s Premio Juventud and the Latin Billboard Music Conference. I also worked as a weekly contributing reporter during the season for Univision’s ‘Mira Quien Baila’, ‘Reina de la Canción’ y Univision’s ‘Nuestra Belleza Latina’.
My celebrity interview roster includes Hollywood actors John Leguizamo, Charles Melton, Yara Shahidi, Brazilian pop star Anitta, Reggaeton artists Nicky Jam, Myke Towers, Lenny Tavarez, Alex Rose, Comedians Omar Chaparro & Arturo Castro to name a few.
Other celebrity interviews include Lunay, Tainy, Manuel Turizo, CNCO, Pedro Capo, Rauw Alejandro, Farruko, Valentino, De La Ghetto, Beret, Llane, Sofia Reyes, Juhn El AllStar, Noriel, Victor Manuel, Reykon, Elvis Crespo, Gente De Zona, Jason Cerda, Aymee Nuviola, Sixto Rein, Messiah Graham, Jason Cerda & Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez to name a few.
I also got to work on the set of the new talk show’ Young Americans’ hosted by Jersey Shore’s Jenni ‘JWow’ Farley as an assistant producer.
Got a story you’d like to pitch? How about a cool place that you think the world-or just us Miami locals- need to know about? Hit me up! Send me an email [email protected] or send me a direct message on Instagram @jackieinthecity or @SoyJackieDiaz
Much love, always,
