Some news. This is my last week at KVIA ABC-7. I’ve accepted a new job that I’ll announce soon, but right now my mind is on El Paso, TX.
I love this city. I knew no one when I arrived 3 years ago, and I leave with friends who became family. We’ve endured tragedy & triumph. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/YoasRrIY9i
