SAN DIEGO — Jasmine Ramirez joined the CBS 8 News team as a reporter in March of 2022.
This career has brought Jasmine on quite a journey, and she couldn’t be more thrilled to have landed in San Diego. Her love for reporting started in high school through a broadcast journalism class that had a daily live show. She believes giving a voice to the voiceless is the greatest privilege and sharing memorable stories that make an impact is why she’s so passionate about this job.
While attending the University of Missouri School of Journalism, she worked as a multimedia journalist for KOMU 8 News. Jasmine spent a summer interning in Brussels, Belgium at an international news agency where she covered the European Union and attended the NATO Summit.
After graduating, Jasmine worked as a reporter and anchor at ABC 17 News in her college town of Columbia, Missouri. She covered everything from record-breaking flooding, a presidential rally and tornado recovery. Ask her about the craziest story she’s ever covered. It involves a person confessing murder to her moments before her live shot….and it’s sure to leave you speechless.
She then spent two years reporting at KOLD News 13 in Tucson, Arizona where she covered wildfires, a record-breaking monsoon and stories at the border. She’s a fan of hot weather so she truly embraced the desert life while living in one of the sunniest cities in the country. Jasmine loves traveling and exploring new places. It’s another reason she’s so thankful to call San Diego home. Living within 10 minutes of the ocean is still mind-blowing to her.
Jasmine has Midwest roots, born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Before you ask her for barbecue recommendations, she’s pescatarian, but says her family would recommend Rosedale Barbecue. This KC-native is ecstatic to share your stories and explore this beautiful, diverse city.
