Cristina Rendon

Hi ya’ll. Thanks for taking some time to check out my page. If my fancy greeting didn’t give it away, I’m a Texas gal at heart living the dream in California.

I guess it was kind of inevitable that I ended up in the San Francisco Bay Area. My favorite show growing up was Full House and I wanted to be Rebecca Donaldson. But seriously, I was always reading and writing as a kid. Those were my strong subjects. That turned into a natural love for journalism. Please do not ask me any difficult math questions.

When I’m not telling stories, I’m most likely watching sports with my husband. I’m a big football and basketball fan! I love watching all our Bay Area teams. Although I must admit, I still secretly root for the Dallas Cowboys and the San Antonio Spurs. I also love to dance. I was a drill team and jazz dancer in high school and college.

My husband and I live in the East Bay. He’s an amazing man who has enough patience to come along on this crazy ride of a career I have. His career has taken him places too. We’ve dated and/or lived in Des Moines, Denver, and Salt Lake City prior to settling down in the Bay Area.

I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my supportive family who always pushes me to follow my dreams. They’ve helped me realize that a little girl from a small town can make big dreams come true. I was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley in a small city near the Mexico border called San Benito. It’s where I was blessed to start my career and I haven’t looked back since, but I’ll never forget my roots.

You might be wondering, any awards? I’ve picked up a few small ones along the way in Utah. I still have my sights set on an Emmy and a Murrow.

If you ever see me around the Bay Area, please stop and say hi. I love meeting new people and especially love meeting our loyal KTVU viewers. We can also connect on social media or you can shoot me an email at
