Brenda Medina is the morning anchor at KTSM 9 news and is glad to be back in the beautiful Borderland!! Born and raised in El Paso, Brenda is a proud graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).
Brenda has spent the last 13 years covering South Texas hot topics including the migrant crisis at the epicenter of South Texas and the raging drug war across the border. She is passionate and knows first-hand the issues impacting communities like ours.
Recently she served as the primetime anchor at KVEO-TV, an NBC affiliate and KTSM sister station. Brenda launched her broadcast career back in 2007 at another local TV station prior to interning and spending a summer at WFLA in Florida.
In between her broadcasting career she set the microphone aside and took on a new role as the spokesperson for the Webb County Sheriff’s Office, an experience she enjoyed as she was able to cross the “yellow tape” and work right beside law enforcement agencies.
She is a busy mom to three little ones. In her spare time, you may see her out and about at local events, the parks, or trying new restaurants. Foodies at heart, Brenda and her husband love checking out the newest restaurants across town. So, if you have any suggestions send those her way!
A few fun facts many people don’t know about her: She is Panamanian and Mexican, cheers on the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Astros and enjoys a great spinning class or run outdoors.
If you see her out and about or on her social media platforms, say hi. She loves making friends and meeting new people!
