Casey Keirnan is the third member of the KTXS sports team. He joined KTXS just before the 2012 football season and was immediately "thrown into the fire" with responsibilities on Football Friday Night, Sports Sunday and KTXS News at 6/10.
Casey started his journalism career while in school at California State University Long Beach in Long Beach, Calif. He was the sports reporter for Campus TV and covered the Long Beach State men's basketball team during their long-awaited return to the NCAA "March Madness" tournament.
He was then hired by Sirius XM radio show World Soccer Daily as a producer in 2009. Casey was eventually given hosting and reporting responsibilities during the show's internet transition throughout the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the following two soccer seasons. Before graduating from CSULB with Magna Cum Laude honors in 2012, he held internships at both Fox Sports Radio in Los Angeles and Major League Soccer in New York City.
Growing up in Houston, Casey's first love in sports were the Rockets and Astros. He is pleased to be primarily covering more traditional sports again.
One of Casey's favorite quotes is, "If you've actually read the bio to this point, bless you."
