A familiar face is returning to Houston TV. Former KIAH 39 MMJ Mayra Moreno is coming back to the Bayou City as an anchor/reporter at KTRK abc13.

"Years ago when I embarked on my journey to become a journalist, I always envisioned myself working for the station I grew up watching in Houston," Moreno posted on Facebook.

She leaves KENS 5 San Antonio where she has been since 2011. Moreno was hired as a reporter for the now TEGNA station, eventually being promoted to Saturday morning anchor.

Moreno started in TV at KRGV in the Rio Grande Valley.

The new KTRK anchor was born in Guanajuato, Mexico and raised in Houston. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Houston with a double major in Journalism and Spanish.

"After spending 4 years in San Antonio with KENS 5 CBS it is bittersweet," she added. "To all my loyal viewers over the years I thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to bring you the news and stories that impacted the community. I feel blessed to be given an opportunity to return home, accomplish a long-time goal and continue to do what I love."

As I wrote years ago for her switch from KIAH to KENS, I worked with Moreno in the last days of KIAH 39s news department.

Dear San Antonio,Years ago when I embarked on my journey to become a journalist...I always envisioned myself working...
