Philadelphia Morning Anchor Moves to Nights in San Antonio

By Kevin Eck 

Stephania Jimenez has joined San Antonio ABC affiliate KSAT as an anchor on the 10 p.m. newscast.

Jimenez comes from WCAU in Philadelphia, where she was a weekend morning anchor. She will join Steve Spriester, Adam Caskey and Greg Simmons on air at the beginning in mid-October.

“I’m really excited to make San Antonio my home,” Jimenez said in a statement. “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.”

Jimenez previously worked at KRIS in Corpus Christi, Texas, WVIT in West Hartford, Conn. and KTSM in El Paso, Texas.

KSAT news director Bernice Kearney said she has followed Jimenez’s career since the two met at a National Association of Hispanic Journalists conference years ago.

“We’re thrilled to have her return to South Texas to helm our flagship newscast—The Nightbeat,” said Kearney.
