Rachel Hackbarth joined 'Fox 51 Today' in September 2013, but this wasn't her first time appearing in the newscast.

Rachel's first on-air appearance was right here on 'Fox 51 Today' in the summer of 2012. She visited the set as 'Miss Tyler USA' to talk about her upcoming pageant, Miss Texas USA 2013.
She now finds herself in the opposite chair interviewing guests and bringing local news to East Texas.

Rachel started off as an intern at Fox 51's sister station, KETK NBC. In January 2013, Rachel made the transition to reporter and in September, moved to Fox 51.

As a native East Texan, Rachel is excited to start her career in her hometown of Tyler, Texas.

Rachel graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler with a B.S. in Journalism and minor in Entrepreneurship.

In her free time, Rachel loves to travel spend time with her family and Shih Tzu, Tiny Dog.

You can watch Rachel in the mornings with Katie Vossler from 7-9.
