Steven Hernandez is a bilingual multimedia journalist who joined 19 News in July of 2019.
Steven was born in Teaneck, New Jersey but spent most of his childhood in the Dominican Republic. He moved back to New Jersey when he was 12, where he first discovered his passion for journalism after visiting the CBS News headquarters in New York City.
In college, Steven worked as a reporter for WOUB-TV while studying at Ohio University. He also published a story on little league baseball players in Argentina, “The Silver Diamond,” after visiting the city of Buenos Aires. He graduated from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in 2019.
Now, Steven is a English and Spanish-language reporter for 19 News, as well as the Friday anchor for our digital, Spanish-language broadcast, “Cleveland Al Día.
Steven enjoys watching all sports, from American football to “fútbol,” building computers and playing his guitar.
Mazzone & Sons Bakery was a multi-generational business in the City of Cleveland. Gallucci Italian Foods described the family as an “incredible family that has given greatly to Cleveland’s culinary community, and truly lived the immigrant’s dream of what is to be a successful American.”
Perhaps one of the more subtle changes has been with one of the station’s most valuable assets: time. Paramedic Parsons explains that the extra steps needed to wear the proper protection for any emergency add as much as 20 minutes to a typical response.
