Rebeca Ibarra is assistant producer for the newsroom.
Rebeca is a Mexico City native who lives in Brooklyn and works on the New Jersey desk. She joined the newsroom in 2016 and wears many hats — reporting on everything from Penn Station's design flaws to the development boom in downtown Newark, and producing segments that range from New York City’s vanishing storefronts to the rising tides threatening the Jersey Shore. (And of course, there’s been the occasional cat story.) You’ve probably also heard her give the afternoon newscast, where she’s been complimented on how she rolls her Rs.
