Agustin joined the Spectrum News team in 2018 as a morning anchor. He was born in Kaufman County just outside of Dallas and grew up in Gun Barrel City. After high school, Agustin went north to Denton where he earned degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from the University of North Texas.

Agustin started his journalism career in 2012 in Beaumont, TX with KBMT-TV, where he earned a Lone Star Emmy for Best Reporter from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Some of the biggest stories Agustin covered included the state takeover of Beaumont ISD and the Kountze Cheerleaders, who gained worldwide attention for writing biblical phrases on football banners. He left Beaumont in 2014 to follow his future wife as she committed to the next stage of her career. The two married in 2018, just a few weeks before Agustin started at Spectrum News 1. 

Agustin has since transitioned to anchoring the evening news Sundays and filling in during the week as needed. He was nominated for a Lone Star Emmy for anchoring breaking news coverage of the George Floyd and Mike Ramos protests in downtown Austin in 2020. 

Agustin lives in Central Texas with his wife and two rescue pugs. Although he's closer to Austin and San Antonio, his sports loyalty is with teams in the DFW area. Agustin is also an avid, loud, and proud gamer and hopes to break gamer stereotypes and educate families. While gaming is his primary beat, Agustin also covers current events and issues within his community.
