Elissa Rivas Wiki – Elissa Rivas Biography
Elissa Rivas is an American news reporter and anchor currently working at KTRK-TV in Houston, Texas. She attended college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, majoring in Political Science and Communications. She took her first job in television news as a reporter and anchor in Yuma, Arizona. Still, her heart longed for Texas so she returned to the Lone Star State to live and work in El Paso. There she covered the intense impact of the 9-11 attacks on immigration and border traffic. Previously, she had worked at Cox Media Group and KYMA-TV.
She has been recognized for her work by receiving the regional and national RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for her continuing coverage of child abduction and murder in El Paso. Through her work documenting teenage alcohol and substance abuse, she earned a National Communicator Award of Distinction and a first-place award in Serious Feature reporting from the Texas Associated Press. Now in Houston, you can find her reporting on Houston traffic in the evening newscasts. She loves to hear from viewers about the stories she covers and with new ideas for stories. Her parents impressed upon her the importance of education, and that’s why she’s proud to be involved with the Adult Reading Center of Pearland. She emcees the organization’s Red Hat Literacy Luncheon each year, and to honor her commitment, the Adult Reading Center started a scholarship in her name, “The Elissa Rivas Scholarship Fund.” The scholarships honor the courage and drive of their clients who’ve learned to read as adults, and fund their continued education — GED, community college, and beyond.”
