A reporter's job is often to shine a spotlight on issues that impact the communities they cover. For NY1 reporter Angi Gonzalez, this is the reason she does what she does: helping folks shine a light on issues that impact them, or giving them information to make decisions about their community is the best part of her job.

For instance, Angi fondly recalls helping a NYCHA resident bring attention to a crumbling wall in her apartment. The issue was resolved soon after, something that might not have happened without her reporting.

When not reporting on the latest around the five boroughs for NY1, you can find Angi with her pup Sophie walking through Astoria Park, not far from her home in Woodside.
