Maria Medina began working at KPIX 5 in March 2015. Maria reports and anchors the KPIX 5 Weekend Early Edition. On Sunday mornings, Maria joins Phil Matier on the anchor desk, getting in-depth interviews with the Bay Area’s state and congressional representatives and other major news makers.
She worked at the CBS station in Sacramento as a reporter before being promoted to the weekend anchor.
During her nearly five year stay at CBS 13, her most memorable stories include covering an active swat situation on live TV for more than nine hours, the Napa quake in 2014 and exclusively interviewing a convicted serial killer she discovered was living under a different identity.
Before working in Sacramento, she reported in Albuquerque and Yakima.
Maria began delivering the news when she was 15…her first job was delivering newspapers in her neighborhood.
Her life motto? Live, laugh and surf.
When she’s not trying to catch waves in Northern California, she’s traveling to Hawaii to surf there.
And when she’s not in the water, you can find her hiking with her two boys and two dogs, exploring the state or trying out a new restaurant.
