Audrey Castoreno will be able to sleep in later as she is moving from her early morning anchor slot to the KENS 5 San Antonio Noon and 4pm newscasts. 

Castoreno starts her later news anchoring Monday, November 22, 2021.

“I am excited for the opportunity to continue to grow as a journalist and to spend more time with my family in the evenings,” Castoreno said in a statement provided to "I appreciate all of the support I've been given over the years from our team and viewers, and I will continue to work hard to bring that same energy to our afternoon newscasts."

Castoreno, who has been with KENS San Antonio since 2015, will continue to produce her Eyewitness News Originals series "Made in SA."

"Audrey has worked hard to get where she is today," said Jack Acosta, KENS 5 news director. "Her Texas roots, years of experience and ability to connect with viewers make her the perfect choice to anchor our afternoon newscasts."

Prior to San Antonio television, the Sam Houston State University grad worked for KWES Midland-Odessa and KAVU Victoria. She interned at FOX 26 KRIV.

In 2013 and 2014, Castoreno was honored by the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters Association (TAPB).

Castoreno gave birth to daughter Aurora in October 2020.

"I’m excited to hit snooze on the alarm and be awake for family dinners," Castoreno added.
