Wendy Fry is a reporter with NBC 7.
Fry’s interest in a journalism career arrived at the early age of 14. She started as an assignment reporter for her high school newspaper. She went on to be News Editor of both her high school paper, and then SDSU’s newspaper, “The Daily Aztec.” She has won several California College Media Awards in college, the highlight being First Place winner for Breaking News after being the first to report on a campus drug ring bust “Operation Sudden Fall.”
Wendy also reported for the broadcast “Aztec News” where she uncovered a drug arrest of the student body president. After graduating SDSU in 2009, Fry went to work for a Watchdog project for the San Diego Union-Tribune as part of a team that dug into faulty weight tickets submitted by a county contractor to haul debris away from wildfire-ravaged homes. That project was a semi-finalist for an Investigative Editors and Reporters award and a National Newspaper Publishers Association award.
Fry has covered South County for the UT San Diego and worked on KPBS’s Envision Multimedia team. She’s won numerous local San Diego Press Club and Society of Professional Journalist awards, including 2012 Sol Price Prize for Responsible Journalism, for “Sweetwater School Series.” She was also honored by the San Diego County Taxpayer’s Association in 2012 with their Media Watchdog Award.
Wendy often participates in the SDSU “Pro’s Come Home” event, and she’s a proud IRE member with a strong focus on watchdog, investigative and accountability journalism.
