Laura Pellicer

Digital News Reporter

Laura Pellicer is a digital reporter with WUNC’s small but intrepid digital news team. She is a former producer with The State of Things, a show that explores North Carolina through conversation. Her coverage at WUNC of the controversial Silent Sam Confederate monument garnered a Gracie Award from the Alliance for Women in Media.

Laura was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, a city she considers arrestingly beautiful, if not a little dysfunctional. She worked as a researcher for CBC Montreal and also contributed to their programming as an investigative journalist, social media reporter, and special projects planner. Her work has been nominated for two Canadian RTDNA Awards.

Laura loves tracing innovations in science and technology, and pursuing stories about Indigenous communities and environmental justice. She is enamored with her home in North Carolina—notably the lush forests, and the waves where she moonlights as a mediocre surfer.
