Brenda Medina is of Panamanian and Mexican descent and graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2007.

In July 2017, Medina returned to the broadcast industry when she joined KVEO-TV Local 23 News. And after four years, she went to work at KTSM-TV and quickly became the station’s most-watched newsreader in El Paso.
Before her last broadcast, the anchor said, “Buenos dias!!! Join me as I bid farewell to the morning show.”
