KENS 5 taking Mayra Moreno from KIAH 39

Former KIAH 39 MMJ/reporter Mayra Moreno is heading west down I-10 to KENS 5 in San Antonio. I'm told she will be a reporter/fill-in anchor at the Belo owned station.

The Houston native was one of the first multi-media journalists at KIAH 39 later moving on to be a NewsFix Predator. She started with the CW station in October 2009.

According to her bio, Moreno graduated from the University of Houston and went on to work for a local radio station in Houston covering political and social issues affecting the Hispanic community. She was also a correspondent and Spanish host for Houston's monthly aviation show Houston Airports Today.

She then spent two years working in South Texas as a reporter and associate producer for KRGV-TV before moving back to Houston.

Her last day at KIAH will be October 7th.

I worked with Mayra at KIAH. She was very hard working and always pleasant to be around.

Now KENS 5 and San Antonio might be an adjustment for Moreno.  Just this week two transgender individuals in a convenience store parking had a fistfight next to a KENS live truck.  Is this considered a 'hot mess' like all of those entertainment bloggers like to say?
