Award-winning broadcast journalist Michelle Valles has been hired by NBC4 as a weekend anchor and general assignment reporter, the station announced Wednesday.
Valles spent 10 years as an evening and morning news anchor and reporter at NBC affiliates in Austin and El Paso. Starting April 9, she will co-anchor the weekend editions of Today in LA alongside Ted Chen, on Saturdays and Sundays, from 7 a.m.-8 a.m.
Valles spent the last two years acting, appearing in musicals and writing a magazine column for Austin Man, where she gave a “woman’s perceptive” on men’s topics.
“I can’t begin to tell you how honored I am to be working with such a talented group of news professionals,” Valles said in a statement. “NBC4 is known for its history of integrity and I’m thrilled to become a part of it.”
A member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Valles received her B.A. in Journalism from University of Texas at Austin.
