Alternative KTBZ-FM (94.5 The Buzz)/Houston brings in Tessa Barrera to join "The Rod Ryan Morning Show," weekdays from 6-10am, effective September 30. Barrera joins hosts Rod Ryan, Alex Middleton and Executive Producer Jose "The Chile" Santos. Barrera comes to The Buzz from KFI-AM/Los Angeles where she served as a news anchor and executive producer. She also previously worked at KZTV/KRIS where she was the first Latina sports anchor in South Texas, covering the Astro's minor league affiliate, Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Texas A&M Kingsville.

"Tessa brings an amazingly strong on-air presence along with an accomplished set of skills in radio, news, sports and television," said 94.5 The Buzz Program Director Elliott Wood. "Her attitude as a go-getter and involvement in the community with great organizations like the Special Olympics makes her the right fit here at The Buzz."

"After a nationwide search and talking to a lot of amazing talent, Tessa was the one who had that immediate 'it factor,'" added Ryan. "Ten minutes after meeting her, I knew she was the missing puzzle piece."

"It is a true honor to be back in the Lone Star state doing what I love," said Barrera. "Joining a market as well respected as Houston brings me so much pride, and I can't wait to lay these roots back in Texas."
