Notre Dame Football, indoor soccer and comedy clubs that’s me, Kimberly Torres, in a nutshell.
Before joining the DFWReporting.com team, I braved the snow and bitter cold winters in South Bend, Indiana, where I reported news and sports at NBC affiliate station, WNDU. While there I worked on stories involving former president George W. Bush, Mohammed Ali and Irish head football coach Charlie Weis. It was here that I fulfilled one of my life-long dreams to be a sideline reporter at Notre Dame home football games.
I got my start in TV news in my hometown station, CBS affiliate, KLST. There I produced morning and weekend newscasts and also reported for a Hispanic news magazine, “Nosotros.” After three years, I made the move to NBC affiliate, KRBC, in Abilene, Texas. There I learned the ins and outs of anchoring a newscast as the station’s weekend anchor. I also created my own franchise piece called, “Do My Job for a Day.” I had the time of my life doing that piece as I performed and reported on various jobs like: Johnny Carinos chef, septic tank cleaner, police dog trainer, etc.
Today, I’m back in the Lone Star State and ready to put my seven years of broadcast skills to the Texas test! “Not so depressing news” is what I’m looking forward to reporting. I can’t wait to concentrate on Friday Night football games, more college football, the Dallas Cowboys and other good news stories. I want to be the kind of reporter the metroplex wants; one that makes you feel like I’m sitting on your couch with you, sharing the news of our community.
In my spare time, I’m most likely at a indoor soccer complex, working out, or vegging out on the couch. My favorite night time activity is going to a comedy club or karaoke bar.
