Jocelyne Pruna joined the 5NEWS team in October 2011 and is super excited to stay in Northwest Arkansas. She was born in Miami, Florida but has called Fayetteville home since 2000.

She graduated from Fayetteville High School with high honors and received her bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science with a minor in Spanish at the University of Arkansas. At the U of A, she made the Dean’s List, received the Broadcast Education Association Scholarship, and the Trish Joyner Journalism Scholarship.

Before joining the 5NEWS team, she worked for La Prensa Libre where she contributed to the newspaper since 2006. She worked for KUAF, the local NPR affiliate, producing on air public service announcements. She also worked for Univision Arkansas covering Northwest Arkansas, the River Valley, and Little Rock.

Her passion, other than news, is encouraging students to get a college education
