Phil Anaya comes to KENS 5 from the "Land of Enchantment." Born and raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Phil grew up playing soccer and left the state to attend Valparaiso University in Northwest Indiana. Getting the opportunity to play Division I soccer is one of his most memorable moments.
After two years at Valpo, Phil transferred to New Mexico State University where he earned his bachelor's degree in Journalism/Mass Communications with a minor in Marketing. While still in college Phil was able to gain some very valuable experience working as a multimedia journalist for KMSB in Tucson.
After graduating in May 2009, Phil went straight to work as a bureau reporter for KFOX in El Paso, TX. There he covered everything from severe weather to politics all across southern New Mexico territory. June, 2011 is when Phil made his jump to San Antonio. In his spare time Phil loves playing golf, working out and spending time with family.
