Isis Romero is a native South Texan who was born and raised in Robstown. She is now the 6 and 10 p.m. news anchor for KENS 5 in San Antonio, Texas.

Isis began her broadcasting career in 2004 at KZTV in Corpus Christi, where she served as the station’s 5, 6, and 10 p.m. anchor.

In 2007, she was named 10 p.m. anchor for KSAZ in Phoenix, Arizona, where she covered several high-profile events and national news stories.

Isis returned home to Texas in 2010, serving San Antonio viewers for more than a decade as 10 p.m. anchor of "The Nightbeat" on KSAT.  During her time there, Isis also produced, anchored and hosted award-winning programs, including "Up Close with Isis Romero," "Conviction" and the "Day of the Dead River Parade."

Isis is a member of the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists and is proud of her ancestry and native roots. She enjoys volunteering for non-profit organizations that share her commitment to uplifting diverse voices, and she often mentors San Antonio-area youth looking to pursue a career in journalism.

Isis loves learning and holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from The University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Science degree in Digital Audience Strategy from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.  She hopes to someday earn a doctorate.

Isis is married to KENS 5 weekend anchor Phil Anaya, and they have three children.
