No stranger to major storms, Romero brought exclusive content to CNN affiliates from the storm-ravaged Bahamas after category five Hurricane Dorian ripped through the country. She was the first Newsource Correspondent on the ground reporting on the murder of George Floyd, live from Minneapolis when the police department's third precinct was burned down during protests. Romero has dedicated much of her reporting over the last several years to issues that impact the Black and Latino communities, while also working to give a voice to sex abuse survivors.

She was also an anchor/reporter for KTVX ABC 4 in Salt Lake City; KCRG TV9 in Cedar Rapids; WSJV FOX 28 in Elkhart, IN; and a weekend reporter for WSYR News Channel 9 in Syracuse.

She was the first black primary anchor in Utah and was featured in ESSENCE magazine and on the Meredith Vieira Show.
