And, Another Departure .....

A fact of life and work in a television market this size, is the coming-and-going of many, many young people ..... West Texas has always been what we call a 'teaching market' where young media professionals - reporters, photographers, producers/editors, etc. - hone their craft and develop their resum├ęs in preparation for moving-up and moving-on to the bigger markets .....

The latest is Shawndrea Thomas, a reporter at NewsWest 9, who is bound for Columbus, Ohio ..... Shawndrea is also known to local radio listeners ..... we will miss her, but we wish her good luck and Godspeed .....

Of course, that doesn't mean we've seen/heard the last of her ..... West Texas alumni revisit us, in a manner of speaking, through news packages they produce in their new markets, which are then made available to us through NBC's newsfeed ..... like this report from NewsWest 9 alum David Marino, who now reports for KVOA-TV, in Tucson, Arizona .....
