Manuel Rueda

I’m a freelance journalist based in Bogota, Colombia where I've been living for the past five years, covering stories like the Venezuelan refugee crisis, the cocaine trade and post conflict recovery. 

I'm available for live reports and can also shoot video for you. I own a Sony A7 Camera, a Sony PXW a Mavic Pro drone and a GoPro.  

I'm a regular contributor for the Associated Press and TRT World. I've also worked with the Christian Science Monitor, BBC World Service, Univision and the International Federation of the Red Cross. 

If you'd like to see some samples of my work please visit:

I have dual Colombian and Venezuelan citizenship, which makes it easy to head to that country for assignments. I'm available for work throughout Latin America.  Last year, I produced video and text stories in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil.  I'm a graduate of Columbia Journalism School in New York.



Here's a link to some of my recent text stories.


Here are some of the stories I have shot, edited and narrated over the past two years.
