Jessica Castro

Morning Anchor, ABC7 News

Good morning, buenos dias, and bom dia Bay Area! Waking up in beautiful San Francisco is a dream come true. I’m thrilled to help bring you the morning news and to be back in California!

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but I’ve spent most of my life in California. I grew up in Irvine then went to college in Los Angeles at USC (Fight on!) where I studied Broadcast Journalism, International Relations, and Multimedia.

I began my career in TV news in Amarillo, TX. Then, I spent nearly half a decade in Las Vegas as a reporter and morning anchor. Now I’m replacing the neon lights of Sin City with the glistening waters of the Bay!

When I’m not at work you can probably find me on the tennis court or curled up with a good book. I also really enjoy cycling, swimming and hiking.

Please follow me on Twitter or Instagram and find me on Facebook. I speak Portuguese and Spanish! Story tips are always welcome or just a quick “Hello!”

Catch Jessica Castro on ABC7 Morning News from 4:30 – 11 a.m. weekdays.
