Two San Antonio anchors have left their stations within a week of each other. Mayde Gomez (pictured left) announced her departure from KABB on Friday while Alicia Barrera has signed off from KSAT this week.
In a move mySA called “abrupt” Gomez, who was a morning anchor at the Fox affiliate, said her goodbyes on social media.
“These past couple of years have been a dream come true. Getting to co anchor with Ernie Zuniga, a pillar in the community and a titan in journalism. He was also the partner I could always ask to help me figure out how to pronounce certain words, locations or names,” said Gomez. “It has been an exciting journey, I will always be thankful for the opportunity to return to my home state and be closer to my family during a time of so much uncertainty.”
Gomez joined KABB in October 2020 after anchoring and reporting at KXTV in Sacramento.
KSAT anchor Alicia Barrera announced her departure from the San Antonio ABC affiliate on Instagram last week.
“A week from today will mark my last day with the #1 news team in SA, KSAT.” Barrera wrote. “These past four years have been more than I ever dreamed of.”
Before joining KSAT in 2018, she reported in the Rio Grande Valley for Telemundo 40.
