Beatriz Canals is an Emmy nominated journalist and proud mom. She has a 12 year old son, Andres and 24 year old step-daughter, Victoria.
As a journalist, Beatriz has worked at several television stations in South Florida, including CBS4 and MY33 where she anchored the news. Before that, she was the 5:30pm and 6:30pm news anchor at WSVN-7. With more than 20 years experience, Beatriz has covered several big news stories including the 9/11 attacks, the untimely death of JFK Junior, and the Gianni Versace’s murder. She also traveled to Cuba for a series of reports and even went diving with sharks at Stuart’s Cove in the Bahamas.
A few years ago, Beatriz decided to take a break from her career in news and become a full-time mom. When she is not driving her son to and from school or running errands, she dedicates her time to helping others in the community. She is most proud of the work she is doing with the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and Miami Children’s Health Foundation. “I love informing others about the great work being done at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. They truly have some of the best specialists in pediatric healthcare. I’ve experienced it first hand with Andres.” Beatriz is also on the MDC-TV Advisory Board for Miami Dade College.
