A growing team 

Siren is proud to welcome Emmy award winning journalist Jorge Avellan onto its growing team as Media and Business Development Specialist.

Jorge brings more than 15 years of experience as a journalist covering Metro Detroit. He started his career with the Spanish language television network Univision in Texas. After a Univision executive saw him over a television news feed, he was offered a job as a television news reporter in Detroit, Michigan. A few years later he moved on to WMYD-TV20, also in Detroit. Most recently, he reported at NPR affiliate WEMU-FM in Ypsilanti. 

Jorge has covered every big news story during his time in Detroit from presidential visits, bankruptcy, city hall scandals, a Super Bowl, World Series games and of course the North American International Auto Show. He also once flew inside a Red Bull Air Race stunt plane reaching speeds of up to six G-forces.
