Roberto Roldan

Roberto Roldan is a senior at the University of South Florida pursuing a degree in mass communications and a minor in international studies.

He has previously worked with the Tampa Bay Times, WMNF and The (Louisville, Ky.) Courier-Journal, where he covered the wedding ceremonies in Kentucky of plaintiffs in the historic same-sex marriage case before the U.S. Supreme Court. In Tampa, he's covered everything from violent crime in Tampa’s university neighborhoods to the local music scene.

When he's not out reporting, Roldan enjoys seeing local bands and spending time in the outdoors.

In their bid to be Florida’s next attorney general, former Hillsborough County judge Ashley Moody and state representative Frank White both accepted campaign donations from a private prison corporation that manages an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) family detention center.

When Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico last September, Julio Ildefonso and his mother watched as their wooden home in Bayamón was blown away.

The Fourth of July is a holiday notorious for increased drunk driving accidents, so AAA and Budweiser are teaming up to get people home for free if they've had too much to drink.

Displaced Puerto Rican families who were preparing to leave their hotels and motels on Thursday will get to stay a bit longer.

The federal program that has provided hotel vouchers to Puerto Rican families displaced by Hurricane Maria will end on Saturday, and advocates are worried some Tampa Bay families will be left with nowhere to go.
