Zach Fuentes joined KION News Channel 5/46 in November 2016. He comes to the Central Coast from his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada.
His broadcasting career started not long after high school at a television station in Pahrump, Nevada, a town about an hour away from Vegas. Starting with a summer volunteer position, Zach answered phones and learned to work behind -- and in front of -- a television camera. He eventually became the station's entertainment reporter, weather anchor and news anchor.
Zach decided that journalism was for him and pursued his degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In addition to his studies, Zach interned at The Morning Blend, a lifestyle talks show.
The internship turned out to be an amazing experience that led to his promotion to the position of producer of the show. He made frequent on-air appearances, met many celebrities and went to VIP events he would never have dreamed of attending.
Zach is thrilled to be reporting on the Central Coast, closer to the ocean than he's ever lived, and excited to serve the community.
