Maria Aguilera is the new weekend reporter at KTXS News. She graduated from the University of Houston with a bachelor of arts in broadcast journalism and a minor in marketing with a professional sales certification.
She previously worked at KTMD Telemundo Houston, an NBC owned and operated station. There, she worked in the marketing and promotions department for a year and a half and a news intern during her last semester in college.
Maria found a love for journalism when she was in high school. She was a writer for the school newspaper and an anchor for the school news. In College, Maria continued pursuing journalism by becoming a staff writer for The Daily Cougar and a reporter for CoogTv’s @UH News
Maria was born in Monterrey, one of the largest cities in Mexico and moved to Houston, the fourth largest city in the US when she was four years old. Houston is home for her and she’s happy to be in Texas and only six hours away from home.
Maria loves music and singing. She was a cantor at her church choir in Houston for seven years before moving to Abilene. She has a love for photography and music so she spends her free time taking photos of anything she finds interesting, and singing.
Maria is very excited to join the KTXS News team.
