Denise Valdez
Mistress of Ceremonies

Denise Valdez is an Emmy award winning journalist and the co-anchor of 8 news now at five and the number one rated 11 PM newscast in southern nevada.

Calling Nevada home for more than a decade, Denise joined KLAS-TV in 2006. She has been part of the team winning Emmy’s for Best Morning Newscast, Best Coverage of a Special Event, and Best Breaking News Coverage.

In 2009, she won an Emmy for Best Anchor in  the Pacific Southwest Region. Denise won her first Emmy in 2007 for a series of educational reports, called 'Cool at School'. The stories highlighted  the positive programs in Clark County schools.

Besides news, her other passion, is pets. She produces a regular segment called ‘Pet Project’ where she reports on local animal issues. She supports several rescue groups, fostering kittens for the Animal Foundation and adopting two boys, Dutch and Joey, from Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Nevada and Oliver from Friends for Life Humane Society.

Denise came to us from KNBC-TV in Los Angeles where she was the weekend anchor of Southern California's number one late night newscast. Before Los Angeles, she was the weekend anchor at KXAS-TV in Dallas and the noon and 6pm anchor at KSAT-TV in San Antonio. She also worked in Monterey and Palm Springs, California.

She has been a television journalist for 23 years.

Denise graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism from Pepperdine University. Before landing her first on air job, she got plenty of practice talking in front of the public as a tour guide at Universal Studios.


Sergio began playing violin at age 10 in his school orchestra.  It wasn't long before he knew it would be part of his life, permanently. Growing up on the El Paso/ Ciudad Juárez border, his exposure was not limited to symphonic music, but in folkloric Mexican Mariachi and Country/Bluegrass music as well.  At the age of 17, Sergio took first place at the El Paso Young Artist Concerto Competition, and went on to study violin performance at The University of North Texas on scholarship.  A former member of the El Paso Symphony Orchestra and Associate Concertmaster of the Glendale Symphony Orchestra, he has performed under the batons of Lowell Graham, former Commander and Conductor of the United States Air Force Band, as well as world-renowned Turkish Conductor Gürer, Aykal.  Sergio has been a featured soloist among orchestras, choirs, dramatic stage productions, and chamber groups, internationally.  His unique perspective and sound come from experience in Classical, Jazz, Latin, Pop, Rock, Soul, Gospel, and Folk performances.  Sergio is currently a resident soloist at Colombo's Jazz Club in Eagle Rock, CA, and resides in Las Vegas, NV.

"My music is a vocabulary with no Greek or Latin roots, let me tell you a story." -Sergio Daae
