Stephania Jimenez joins KSAT San Antonio

Stephania Jimenez is joining the KSAT 12 San Antonio Nightbeat anchor team from NBC10 Philadelphia WCAU.

“I’m really excited to make San Antonio my home,” Jimenez said on the KSAT website. “I couldn’t be prouder to join the strong team on KSAT12′s Nightbeat and I look forward to meeting our viewers very soon! I want to be very involved in the community as I really love volunteering for causes that involve children. I’ve covered stories ranging from the Sandy Hook shooting and Hurricane Harvey to the recent devastating floods brought on by Ida. I enjoy covering breaking news stories and making new friends. I have a passion for cooking, home decorating, exercising, and reading.”

“Stephania and I met at a National Association of Hispanic Journalists conference years ago,” KSAT News Director Bernice Kearney added. “And I’ve followed her career from Corpus Christi to Philadelphia, PA. We’re thrilled to have her return to South Texas to helm our flagship newscast — The Nightbeat.”

Jimenez debuts on KSAT's 10pm newscast in mid-October joining Steve Spriester, Adam Caskey, and Greg Simmons. She takes the spot left empty by Isis Romero who exited KSAT in July 2021.

The Brooklyn, New York raised Jimenez was hired at NBC10 in July 2018 and worked as a weekend morning anchor/reporter. 

She came to Philly from KRIS 6 Corpus Christi where she worked as an evening news anchor.  

Before KRIS, Jimenez was an investigative/consumer reporter and anchor for NBC Connecticut WVIT.

The Syracuse University grad started her broadcast news career in Texas with KTSM/KDBC El Paso.

Jimenez's last day with the Philadelphia NBCUniversal owned station was September 19, 2021. 

"Thank YOU for allowing me to share your stories," Jimenez tweeted concerning her NBC10 departure.  "We’ve had heavy conversations this past year about racial injustice, health and violence. I’m honored you’ve allowed me into your homes."

According to her WCAU bio, Jimenez is Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Italian descent. KSAT posts that she is bilingual and has been married for ten years.
