Jade Hernandez
Jade Hernandez is a general assignment reporter for ABC7 Los Angeles.

Jade came to ABC7 from our sister station in Chicago but has spent more time telling stories in California than anywhere else in the country. She says, "California's diversity in both landscape and people keep pulling me back to the Golden State."

During her 20-year career in journalism, Jade has reported in San Francisco, Atlanta, and Kansas City, Missouri.

A third-generation Mexican-American, Jade began reporting in Topeka, Kansas, where she was born and raised, and where she developed her Midwest values.

A closet fashion enthusiast, Jade says she's just now learning the art of cooking -- taking to heart the motto from the animated film "Ratatouille" ... anyone can cook.

She applies another quote from the movie to life in general, "If you focus on what you left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead."

Jade spends her extra time hiking the local trails, chasing her young child through the sand and surf, and trekking back and forth across the country visiting family and friends.

Her husband, youngest son and Corgi, Zuma Luz, are all California natives.
