Terri grew up in Ballinger. She says, “I bled Red and Black then and continue to bleed Red and Black with the Red Raiders”.
She has been with KLBK since 2005 and anchors the 6, and 10pm News daily on KLBK. In 2013, she helped start Lubbock’s ONLY daily Lifestyle show, Trends & Friends, and served as the Executive Producer and Host for four years and turned over the reigns so she could focus more on News and her family.
Having never met a stranger, she received her B.A. in Communication from Angelo State University with a background including Sales, Human Resources, Public Relations and Promotions. In 2005, the station found her doing Promotions, Marketing, Concerts and Events out at Buffalo Springs Lake in Lubbock and immediately asked her to anchor the KAMC 28 show Good Morning Lubbock.
About a year and a half later she moved to KLBK and become co-anchor for the evening newscasts. Terri says, “being allowed into your homes and being able to tell you about the news of the day is something I take pride in.”
