It has been Myra's long-time goal to anchor and report in her hometown, and being able to do that as part of the KSAT 12 News team is a dream come true.
Myra joined KSAT in 2012 after working in the Waco-Temple-Killeen television market, where she was the weekday evening anchor for KCEN-TV.
During her time there, Myra covered a tragic event that changed not only Central Texas, but the nation.
Myra was the first anchor on the air on Nov. 5, 2009 -- the day 13 people were killed and 32 others wounded in a shooting at Fort Hood. She anchored more than seven hours of breaking news coverage as the gravity of that day unfolded on the largest military installation in the country.
Prior to her time in the Central Texas, Myra lived and worked in Corpus Christi, where she was a morning anchor and reporter. Her days started before most alarm clocks went off, but the experience was invaluable. That's where she discovered a love for consumer and investigative reporting.
She will tell you the best stories are the kind that make an impact and help someone who might not be able to advocate for themselves.
San Antonio is home for Myra. She graduated from Ronald Reagan High School and went on to earn a journalism degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
She is originally from Kentucky and proud of her bluegrass roots.
But South Texas is home.
Myra and her husband share the love, early wake-up calls and slobbery, one-of-a-kind kisses of their toddler son (and Penny, their dog).
