Anchor of 7 NEWS at 5, 6, and 10pm
With Co-Anchor Craig Stevens
Emmy award winning journalist Belkys Nerey has been a TV junkie her whole life. It's no wonder she grew up to be a main anchor at one of the country's most dynamic television stations.
Infinitely watchable, Belkys is one of those few personalities who genuinely project. Whatever ‘It' is that propels a TV personality and draws audiences to them, Belkys clearly possesses.
Born in Havana and raised in Long Island and Miami, Belkys is a natural who took every possible lesson, from piano to ballet to tap. Completely bilingual, Belkys started her television career as a reporter for a South Florida cable station. She was a "one-man band" for more than two years (shooting her own video and editing her own stories), before heading for Connecticut to take a job as general assignment reporter for WTNH-8 , the ABC affiliate in New Haven. It wasn't long before she was covering some of the market's biggest stories, often beating the competition convincingly because she could speak Spanish.
During her nine-year tenure at Miami's WSVN, Belkys has covered major news stories and, up until recently, co-anchored the pop-culture driven Deco Drive. Now you can catch her anchoring the 5,6,10 and 11pm newscasts, alongside Craig Stevens.
Her lighthearted interview style and fun loving-personality make all of her stories witty, refreshing, and -- just like Belkys herself, completely original.
