Hunter Sáenz joined 27 News as a multimedia journalist in May 2016. He currently reports for 27 News at 10p.m.
Sáenz traveled to Madison from Syracuse, New York, where he was an Orangeman at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. While managing to trek through more than 40 feet of snow throughout his four years there, Sáenz received his bachelor’s degree in broadcast and digital journalism with a minor in political science. He worked as an anchor/reporter for Citrus TV, the university’s fully student-run news station.
At SU, he received the New York State Associated Press Association Award for Best News Story for his report on a jolly city bus driver. During his last year at SU, Sáenz followed Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign during the New Hampshire primary, filing reports for KPRC Channel 2 News in Houston, Texas. He also covered the Senator’s campaign through New York’s primary. Sáenz also worked as an associate producer at KPRC during his holiday breaks throughout college.
A proud native of League City, Texas, Sáenz enjoys getting back down to the Lone Star State. He loves spending time with his family in the great outdoors. From fishing the gulf, to duck and hog hunting, Sáenz lives up to his name. In his spare time, he enjoys running long distance with his chocolate lab, Ruger, trying out new places to eat and attending country concerts with friends.
