A California native, Hernandez currently works as a weekend morning co-anchor and general assignment reporter for KABC.

“I am ridiculously lucky,” Hernandez told about her new job. “Not only am I joining an amazing news team, I’m moving to an amazing city!”

Before joining KABC in 2004, Hernandez worked as a producer at KESQ in Palm Springs and as a reporter for News 14, a 24-hour cable news channel in North Carolina.  She is expected to anchor KHOU’s 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts.
