The Palm Beach Zoo is happy to announce the hiring of Angela Cruz Ledford, former WPTV reporter, as the Zoo's new Media Relations Manager. Ledford brings eight years of communications experience, enthusiasm for the Zoo’s mission, a passion for non-profit organizations and experience in multiple South Florida newsrooms. In her new position, Ledford is responsible for serving as the media contact and communications liaison for the Zoo, as well as raising awareness of the Zoo’s conservation efforts.
“The Zoo is proud to have Angela Ledford joining our conservation team,” said Andrew Aiken, President and CEO of the Palm Beach Zoo. “Angela’s broad media experience and storytelling expertise genuinely complement the Zoo’s mission to inspire people to act on behalf of wildlife.”
Ledford most recently worked as a Reporter/Multi-Media Journalist for WPTV NewsChannel 5 and WFLX FOX 29. Her experience in the station’s Stuart News bureau allowed her to work closely with other journalists, in a partnership covering the Treasure Coast.
“I am thrilled to represent the Palm Beach Zoo, which educates people about the need for wildlife conservation,” said Ledford. “I look forward to working with media to tell the Zoo’s unlimited stories about the animals that we care for and save from the real threat of extinction.”
She previously worked in marketing/public relations with two non-profit organizations, Impresario’s Choice (an arts organization dedicating to showcasing Broadway musicals) and the Philippine-American Association of Northeast Louisiana.
