Cary Zayas

Cary Zayas is a Rio Grande Valley native, born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. She graduated from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos with a bachelor's degree in mass communications in 1991.

That is also the year that Cary started her career at CHANNEL 5 NEWS. She anchored the morning newscast, CHANNEL 5 NEWS THIS MORNING, for several years before becoming CHANNEL 5’s 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. news anchor.

Cary left the news business for a few years to be a full-time mom to her two beautiful daughters, Elise Danielle and Natalie Ilana. But she regularly filled in on the news desk at CHANNEL 5 NEWS.

Today, Cary anchors CHANNEL 5 NEWS at 4 and 6.

"I am so happy to be back home! Channel 5 is where I started my career. It’s a joy for me to be back at the news desk, keeping our viewers informed about what is happening in our community," she said. "It’s my job to tell the stories you care about. I have to get it right!"

Cary lives in McAllen with her two daughters.
