Managing Editor

Brigid Jaipaul-Valenza is an award winning journalist that coordinates our daily news coverage.

In 2019, as a freelance contributor to WBFO she and Thomas O’Neil-White shared NYS Associated Press first place honors for our “Working Poor” series as the state’s best documentary by stations our size. She also won second place that same year, with Kyle Mackie and Thomas for our “School to Prison Pipeline” series.

In the late 1990s through 2005, Brigid was an executive producer in charge of the morning shows at WGRZ Channel 2, editing scripts, creating enterprise series and developing community involvement special projects. During her time there, she brought a third rated Nielsen newscast to number one in the market in six months.

She’s also an artist, an internationally published author, a certified paralegal, and a small business owner.
