Born and raised in Southern California, Hernandez joined NBC's Access Hollywood as a co-host in 2014. There, she was proud to be one of the entertainment news program's first Latina correspondents. Before that, she served as the long-time co-host of the #1 rated and nationally syndicated morning show, Big Boy's Neighborhood, on Los Angeles' influential Power 106 FM.
