Mercedes Martinez is the host of “Mercedes in the Morning” on KMXB/ Mix 94.1 and “Las Vegas NOW!” on KLAS-TV Channel 8.
Born and raised in Colorado, she has been in Las Vegas since 1997 where she began waking up the city on Mix 94.1. She has been hosting “Las Vegas NOW!” on KLAS since the show debuted in 2017.
Her favorite part about working in radio and television is being able to create a bond with people. “’I feel like I know you’ is the biggest compliment I can receive. Being a role model to girls and women is something that I take very seriously.”
She has been happily married to her husband, Matt, since 2000 and they have two daughters that keep her very busy.
Mercedes loves taking advantage of the entertainment in Las Vegas (the best concerts she’s been to are Ice Cube, Michael Bublé, and Lady Gaga) and she loves doing CrossFit and spin. She also loves sports and is a die-hard New York Yankees, Vegas Golden Knights and Denver Broncos fan.
She graduated Cum Laude from UNLV with a degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Sociology.
