In his 10 years in Texas, Kevin has received the Lone Star Regional Emmy for best Feature Reporter seven different times. And in a 34-Emmy career as a reporter, writer, and producer he also picked up a camera again – receiving the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Emmys as the top solo Video Journalist in the state as well.
He is a 4-time recipient of the Best Reporter in Texas award from the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters, a 3-time Best Reporter recipient from the Headliners Foundation of Texas and has been honored with five regional Edward R. Murrow Awards.
He joined WFAA September 2016 as a Senior Reporter/Multi-Skilled-Journalist after several years at TEGNA’s sister station KHOU in Houston. His television career has also taken him from Eureka, California to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Seattle.
Although, technically, not a native-born Texan, (missed out by just a couple of months) his DNA definitely is. The son of west Texas parents who eventually migrated to Southern California, Kevin attended elementary schools in Mesquite.
He holds a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Northwestern University and a degree in Business from the University of Southern California. A student Emmy nomination started his broadcast career at Palomar College in San Marcos, California where he also returned to serve as an adjunct professor.
Kevin has also been honored for his work by the Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities, The American Cancer Society, and the Texas Medical Association.
He is always looking for positive, uplifting, and inspirational stories to tell. If you have a story idea, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
