Hector Mejia joined FOX23 News in October, 2014.
He came from his hometown of Los Angeles, CA where he worked as a live radio anchor on KCSN 88.5 FM and television reporter at Valley View News.
At a young age, Hector knew journalism would be his calling. After witnessing through his television set the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he noticed how stories from Ground Zero motivated people throughout the country to swiftly take action.
Hector earned a journalism degree with a minor in Spanish-language journalism from California State University, Northridge. There, he anchored a live 30-minute news program on KCSN 88.5 FM and reported for Valley View News, a television newscast that airs locally on a city-owned cable channel.
Hector also field produced and prepared content for ABC7 Eyewitness News, Vista L.A. and Eye on L.A. as an intern at KABC-TV in Los Angeles. In March 2014, he was one of 12 students selected nationwide for a fellowship with WRAL-TV and UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Journalism in Raleigh, NC. He also worked behind the scenes of government while interning at Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Los Angeles District Office in 2009.
When Hector’s not searching for the next story, you can find him along Tulsa’s river trails or exploring new restaurants. He’s excited to call Tulsa home and can’t wait to meet people in the community. He’s also fully fluent in Spanish.
Hector is a proud National Association of Hispanic Journalists member and Kappa Tau Alpha inductee.
