Karla Barguiarena joined 13 Eyewitness News as a full time reporter in February 2014. It is a return to covering her adopted hometown full time, after a six year hiatus. Karla began her television career as an anchor and reporter at KTMD-TV, Houston's Telemundo affiliate. Her reporting took her across Mexico and throughout Central America.

Karla made the jump to English language broadcasting in 2006 when she joined KHOU-TV as a general assignment reporter. She left the news business in 2008 and spent several years in marketing and public relations before joining KTRK as a freelance reporter in the fall of 2013.

Karla is a proud graduate of Texas A&M University. Whoop! She received her Master's Degree in Journalism from Boston University.

Outside of work, Karla is a busy, busy mom. She had three children in three years and no, none of them are twins! But she still finds time for reading, cooking and volunteering to help the Mexican American community. She is a native of Monterrey, Mexico and a naturalized US Citizen.

Karla's always looking for a story. You can email her at karla.barguiarena@abc.com
