Andrea Martinez joined the KENS 5 team in January 2017. You can catch her in the evenings reporting for the 10 p.m. newscast.

She is originally from Miami, but she calls Texas home for now -- and loves it!

Before coming to San Antonio, Andrea worked for the CBS affiliate in Tyler, Texas, which happens to be our sister station! While there, she gained experience in anchoring the weekend newscast as well as reporting during the week.

She graduated from the University of Southern California (Fight On!) with a bachelor of arts degree in broadcast and digital journalism from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

During her time at USC, she worked as a multimedia journalist for USC's award-winning and student-run newscast, Annenberg TV News (ATVN).

She also interned at Telemundo 51 and NBC 6 South Florida, where she worked the assignment desk.

Andrea took her passion for entertainment news to NBC Universal's E! News. While at E!, she researched and investigated breaking entertainment news stories and worked directly with the news senior managing correspondent in shaping the daily newscast.

Andrea loves spending time with her family and her Yorkshire Terrier puppy, Tyler. She loves the outdoors, eating amazing food, traveling, and getting to know new places!
