After 18 Years in Local TV News, Departing Anchor Says ‘Quite Honestly, I’m Tired’

In an interview with the San Antonio Current, Sylvia Rincon admits eighteen years in local TV news is exhausting. “Well, quite honestly, I’m tired,” she said. “It’s a demanding job being a television reporter.”

After twelve years at San Antonio Fox affiliate KABB, Rincon has changed course–taking a communications job for a local school district. “This is a big change, [but] for our generation, I think it’s not unusual to have two or three big careers.”

If Rincon does ultimately decide to have a third big career, there’s a chance it will be politics. “I’ve talked about running for City Council or commissioner,” Rincon says. “It’s no secret.”
