Tania Ortega

This California girl is no stranger to the Lone Star State. Tania Ortega has been reporting news in Texas for 3 years, and has been making her mark here in Austin since February 2013.

Tania was born in San Diego but grew up in Tijuana, Mexico. Growing up in a border town gave her some life experiences that molded her into the reporter she is today and gives her a unique perspective on many issues facing Texas.

Tania is a San Diego State University graduate who also attended the University of Missouri in St. Louis and the University of London. Her education was enhanced by being a part of the Emma Bowen Foundation for Minority Interest in Media, which gave her valuable professional experience while in college.

Tania previously worked in Waco at the Telemundo and NBC stations. Among the major stories she covered were the Nasar Abdo trial and the Fort Hood Shooting aftermath. She also reported extensively on the Hispanic community.

In her free time Tania enjoys hiking, watching movies and cooking. You can see Tania every morning on FOX 7's Good Day Austin.
