Audrey Castoreno is the anchor for the noon and "First at Four" newscasts at KENS 5 in San Antonio, Texas.
Audrey joined the KENS 5 team in August 2015. When she’s not on the desk, Audrey can be found out in the field, reporting on stories that highlight issues of diversity, equity and inclusion with our “Together We Rise” series. She also focuses on unique local businesses for her bi-weekly "Made in S.A." segment.
Audrey has been honored with two Emmy awards for her anchoring at KENS 5. She’s also covered major events, such as the Robb Elementary shooting in Uvalde, the migrant tragedy in June 2022 and numerous weather events.
Stepping into her first newsroom at the age of 16, Audrey began learning the basics of reporting in her high school program, Dobie News. She went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. EAT ‘EM UP KATS! During college she was an active member of the university’s television station, KSHU-News 7, and she interned at KRIV- FOX 26 in Houston.
Her first job out of college brought her to KAVU in Victoria, Texas, as a reporter and fill-in anchor. From there, she headed west to Midland/Odessa, where she was a 4 and 5 p.m. anchor for four years. While at KWES, Audrey covered a variety of breaking news stories, including the 2014 Fort Hood shooting.
Born and raised in Houston, Audrey has enjoyed the tour of Texas her career has given her. However, spending many holidays, summers and Fiestas in the Alamo City with family has always made San Antonio feel like a second home.
When she’s not out reporting, you can catch Audrey taking in all the flavor San Antonio has to offer and spending time with her husband, daughter and two dogs.
If you have a story or just want to say hello, Audrey would love to hear from you!
