Vargas co-anchored the weekday morning newscasts for KRIV-TV, the Fox owned-and-operated station in Houston, from 2007 to 2010. During her three years with the station, KRIV attracted record-setting ratings. Just months after her arrival, the station made history when its four-hour morning news block finished the May 2008 sweep in first place in the key adults 18-49 demographic. The station also received its first-ever Best Morning Newscast award from The Associated Press in Texas. In April of 2010, the Texas AP also recognized Vargas with an honorable mention in the Best News Anchor/Team category.
Prior to KRIV, Vargas lived in Los Angeles and was an anchor, producer and entertainment correspondent for CNN, where she provided regular reports for “American Morning,” “Anderson Cooper 360” and “The Situation Room.” She also appeared regularly with Nancy Grace on CNN’s sister channel HLN.
Before that, Vargas reported for KTLA-TV in Los Angeles, hosted TV Guide Channel’s “Hollywood Insider” and appeared on the nationally syndicated series “Real TV.” She began her career in broadcasting as a news writer and producer for WPIX-TV in her hometown of New York.
Vargas is the daughter-in-law of the late Ike Pappas, a former CBS News correspondent who spent 25 years with the network and covered foreign wars, the Pentagon and Congress. He also reported on the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Vargas, who is fluent in Spanish, graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Long Island University. She and her husband Alex have two sons who were both born in Los Angeles.
