Michelle is our CBS Austin This Morning reporter. Every morning from 5 a.m.- 7 a.m., you can find her covering everything from breaking news to the latest developing stories overnight. Michelle joins the team from our sister station CBS 4 Rio Grande Valley where she started as a Multi Media Journalist and was later promoted to morning anchor.

When she is not out on the field, she enjoys spending time outdoors, learning more about Austin’s history and cuisine and going to church. Michelle graduated from California State University, Fullerton. Michelle is a bilingual reporter with experience in both markets. She started her career as an entertainment reporter for a Spanish speaking station in Los Angeles, CA, where she covered movie premieres, red carpet events and other major events in the entertainment industry. In 2016 she moved on to cover community oriented stories, which she feels most passionate for in South Texas.

Michelle was raised in San Jose, Costa Rica, but she is very excited to call Austin her new home. You can connect with Michelle on Facebook and Twitter. If you have any stories ideas you would like her to cover, you can contact her at mvargas@sbgtv.com.
