Anayeli Ruiz joined KRIS6 News November 2014. She spent two and a half years in West Texas working for Telemundo and the NBC station.
She was born in Mexico City, but is a Texan at heart. She grew up in Houston and graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and Spanish.
Anayeli discovered her passion for journalism and reporting at her local high school. She continued to develop her passion at the University of Houston where she hosted and worked as a reporter for two different student-run television programs. While in college, she interned at KHOU-TV in Houston.
Anayeli continued to broaden her on-air experience after graduation by working as a reporter and host for a local entertainment show for Azteca America in Houston. She loves the people of Texas and covering stories that impact the area whether it's breaking news, crime, politics or a good news story.
When not working, you may find Anayeli playing soccer or spending time with her family and friends, but music is her second passion. She loves to sing, play the piano,and dance.
Texas has always been the place Anayeli calls home and she is thrilled to be part of the KRIS6 News Team.
