Diego Hernandez bio

I joined KWWL in August 2020 as a multimedia journalist, and I’m excited to start my career in news here in eastern Iowa!

Born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, I made my move to central Illinois where I attended Illinois State University. There I studied Mass Media Communications and minored in Spanish. I was a part of the campus television news station, TV-10 News, and worked as a reporter, producer, and anchor for the live newscasts.

After completing an internship at Univision Chicago working with the creative services team, I was asked to continue my internship experience by producing Spanish language news content throughout my final year at Illinois State.

I’m an entertainer at heart and have performed in many theatre productions, but once I got to college I joined the nation’s oldest collegiate circus, ISU’s Gamma Phi Circus. I took part in aerial acts, juggling, German Wheel, and walked the high wire.

When I’m not telling your stories, I like to try out new recipes, watch movies and shows, and spend time with family and friends!
