Janine Reyes joined 6 News Sunrise in 2010.

She loves waking you up with news you need to know to start your day. She also hits the streets, reporting on issues important to you. During her time at 6 News, she's covered everything from severe weather and flooding, to uncovering questionable charities and busting a local unlicensed massage therapist for selling gift certificates he never honored.

Janine is a Texas native happy to call the Coastal Bend home. She began her career in El Paso, Texas at KTSM. Her passion for telling stories later led her to WHNT in Huntsville, Alabama where she covered a wide range of stories from a deadly school bus crash that made national headlines, to riding a zero gravity flight that trains astronauts to go weightless in space!

Her Texas roots brought her back to the Lone Star State and she made the Rio Grande Valley her home. She rode out Hurricane Dolly on South Padre Island on July 23, 2008. South Padre Island took a direct hit from the Category two storm. For days some in the Valley had no power and plenty of flooding to deal with. She worked continuously covering their stories.

Janine's passion for telling your stories is what makes each and every day exciting and new, so feel free to contact her at with story ideas or struggles you're facing.

Janine is a proud graduate of New Mexico State University and enjoys spending her off time running the bayfront, or finding adventure with her son, Ayden.

Lee Sausley 6 News Team - Anchors Thu, 31 Oct 2002 3:18:00 PM Lee Sausley

South Texas viewers trust KRIS 6 News anchor, Lee Sausley, to provide late-breaking and accurate news. The prime time anchor grew up in Houston and pursued a degree at the University of Houston. He initially majored in Fine Arts, and later changed his field of study to Communications in Radio/Television. On campus, Lee worked in radio at KUHF-FM, the oldest public radio station in the nation! Later, Lee moved over to KTRH radio, with Jim Nance of CBS Sports.

After six years working in Houston radio, Lee moved to Austin and worked for KOKE AM-FM, and was the state capitol correspondent for the Texas State Radio Network. Lee returned to his hometown of Houston, where he took on the role of news anchor and talk show host at KTRH radio.

It was several years later when Lee moved south to the Coastal Bend to announce the morning drive news on KOUL-FM. Only four months after settling in, Lee was hired to anchor the 5 p.m. newscast at KIII-TV, where he stayed for nearly eight years. For a change of pace, Lee accepted a job on the east coast in Norfolk, Virginia at WVEC-TV, co-anchoring the 11 p.m. newscast. A few years later, Lee returned to Corpus Christi television to anchor the 5 p.m. newscast for almost another decade. Quadrant Productions was his next stop where his expertise was utilized in making commercials, corporate marketing videos, environmental documentaries and a variety of other interesting video productions.

In August 2002, Lee joined KRIS 6 News, anchoring at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Lee and his team at KRIS 6 News are true news leaders in South Texas, offering viewers the most up-to-date, aggressive style of coverage of events important to you and your family.
