Mekena Rodriguez moved from Ohio to join the KBTX News team in September 2018 as a weekday reporter. She graduated from Bowling Green State University with a BS in Multiplatform Journalism.
During her time in college, Mekena worked for the local PBS station and was on-air talent for a student-run broadcast, Falcon 5 News. She also had a summer internship at WTOL News 11 in Toledo, OH.
It's been Mekena's dream since she was little to be a reporter, keeping people updated with the latest information and giving a voice to the voiceless. Now, here she is today ready to tell the stories of those across the Brazos Valley.
Mekena will forever be a Buckeye but is happy to be closer to her NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys.
Mekena is excited to be a part of the KBTX family. Feel free to reach out to her on social media and email with stories that are important to you.
