Brandon Ortega comes to Abilene from Southern California and is thrilled to be a part of the KTXS family as our sports reporter/photographer.
The La Mirada native’s experience in television started back when he was just 12 years old. He is a proud graduate of California State at Los Angeles, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in television media studies with an emphasis in broadcast journalism.
Brandon has interned at several stations, including CitiCABLE 3, Time Warner SoCal, and LA36.
He grew up watching the teams like the Lakers, Dodgers and UCLA Bruins.
Brandon loves to play the drums and guitar. You can probably catch him driving around and singing along or air-drumming to the radio.
He loves to get out and play a wide variety of sports, from shooting hoops to hitting a bucket of golf balls. There is no sport he won’t play, literally.
Feel free to pick his brain about any sport or challenge him to a karaoke sing-off.
He is very close to his family in California and says that he has the coolest parents in the world.
