Once a newsie, always a newsie. Hernandez is a familiar face in Houston; she served as a KHOU anchor for 8 years. She recently took time off after the birth of her second child and is thrilled to return to the anchor desk.

Hernandez moved to Houston in 2011. The Southern California native earned her political science degree at UCLA, before making the move to broadcast television as a producer at KESQ in Palm Springs. She then moved on to be a reporter at North Carolina’s News 14, before joining KABC 7 in Los Angeles as an anchor/reporter.

“I’m excited to begin this new chapter in a community I hold dear,” says Hernandez. “I can’t wait to become a regular part of Houston’s morning routine!”

She and her husband of nearly 6 years have two daughters, 4-year-old Taylor and 5-month-old Madison. They’re also parents to four rescue dogs.
