    Fil-Am TV reporter tries to spotlight Asian-American issues

    SAN DIEGO, California — Her father named her “Liberty” because she was born one day before Independence Day and her immigrant parents loved this country. Her middle name is “Angel” because she survived as a three pound premature baby.

    Liberty Zabala, daughter of the late expatriate Philippines journalist and foreign-service diplomat Larry de Venecia Zabala, is now in her 20s, has indeed survived and risen to a full-time reportorial position in a major news outfit in this city, NBC7.

    An Emmy-nominated reporter, Zabala previously worked as one of four reporter trainees selected from across the country for the NBC Reporter Development Program.

    Under the program, she went through intensive multimedia training alongside NBCUniversal’s top media executives, talents and coaches at NBC5 Dallas, NBC10 Philadelphia, and NBC4 New York under the direction of The Poynter Institute’s Al Tompkins.
