Veronica Macias, Evening Anchor
Veronica Macias is back in her home state of California after more than a decade away.
She last worked in Abilene, Texas as an evening anchor and reporter for KTXS.
During her time there she covered the aftermath of multiple tornados that struck the Big Country. Veronica is always willing and ready to cover breaking news. She was sent to Odessa to cover the mass shooting in the Permian basin, where a gunman shot at drivers from his car for a long stretch of road.
As a child, she read the front page of the Los Angeles Times to her dad and was bitten by the journalism bug. She only realized what her calling was during an internship in Washington, D.C.
People are her passion. She believes we can all learn from each other’s experiences, which is why it’s important to share our stories. Veronica feels like it is a privilege to tell them.
Her life outside of work is filled with the laughter of two little people who are her fuel and reason for living. Becoming a mother, changed her perspective on many things and made her much more compassionate. Who knew you could exist when you have your heart walking around outside your body.
