  1. She is beautiful and one of the best reporters at KSAT but she’s Hispanic…you blacks and white both always have comments.

  2. Watever language she wants to speak is her business. BEAUTIFUL and S*xY ALL IN ONE. BE PROUD DAT SHE IS ON T.V. REPRESENTING WITH PRIDE

    1. She needs to speak English and English only. This is not Mexico. She should go work for Channel 45 if she wants to continue and speak Spanish. I am surprised that KTRK allows her to do that.

  3. LMAO at people thinking Mayra and Chauncey are in a relationship. Mayra has a whole husband. She said she never dated Chauncey. Chauncey joked that she was his “work wife” when she got engaged to her now real husband. I wish people would stop repeating this misinformation.

  4. I don’t see anything wrong with it. After all we have 100’s of thousands of Latino people in Houston. Let it go. No. problem.
    By the way I’m white not Latino.

  5. This is a free country. We can speak what ever language we want. There is no law that says speak ENGLISH ONLY. What about when the foreigners speak their own language such as the Chinese? Do you tell them to speak English only? Of course not.

    1. You all look great together and I’m sure we all flaws but give that handsome guy a chance. Now if you don’t want him I have daughter in Air Force who is a Sergeant and she’s beautifuly. She loves the Lord so you can tell Chancy since you don’t want him!

    2. None of my business

      So I thought.

      They usually wear matching outfits and didn’t they do a piece together from their home/apt?

      1. They consistently wear matching clothes and flirting on air. Trouble is ahead if they continue this. It’s very noticeable.

    3. What is wrong with people today there nothing wrong with speaking English or Spanish this is a free Country what about thoes who speak other languages I guess Americans today think we should just speak English all the time hell no I will speak both languages all I want screw the all of Y’All

    4. I am offended by Mayra’s good morning in Mexican. This is not acceptable in the US. I was born here and I think she should speak English.

      1. Oh shut up. Good morning. Buenas Dias. Who did that hurt? Let’s us know that she is capable of speaking both languages. It makes me laugh at you.

      2. Absolutely. I can’t stand the way they pronounce Mayra’s name. You use slang when you call her mida. How do you get mida out of Mayra? So unprofessional.

    5. Patsy, please get educated. It’s not Mexican, its called Spanish. Just like you would not say speak American but English. *smh*

    6. Hi, this is Mayra Moreno. I was addressed to this post. I am not married nor am I engaged to my co anchor Chauncy Glover. I would appreciate it if this was taken down.
