Beatriz Reyna reports and anchors newscasts for NBC Nebraska North Platte & Scottsbluff
Beatriz Reyna joined the Nebraska News & Information Network in December of 2004 as a general assignments reporter and photographer. Now she anchors the weekend evening newscasts on KNOP and KNEP.
Originally from North Platte, Beatriz earned her Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
"Since the age of 13, I always knew that I wanted to be a reporter," Beatriz said. "I remember sitting on the couch with my grandparents one afternoon watching Univision–the Spanish network and saying to myself 'that's what I want to do someday.' Fast forward a few years later, I am living that dream."
Beatriz's favorite part of her job is meeting new people everyday and sharing their stories. Whether they make you angry, cry or laugh, Beatriz strives to keep viewers informed.
When she's not working, Beatriz loves spending time at the gym, competing in triathlons and spending time with friends and family.
Beatriz enjoys hearing from those in the community and is always looking for good story ideas. Feel free to say hello or tell her what is happening in your community.
