It puts a smile on my face as I proudly say, "Southeast Texas is home!" I moved to Beaumont in 2007 after accepting a job as the Weekend Anchor. Through the years, I’ve moved up the ranks and currently anchor News at Noon on CBS and SETX Live on Fox at 3:00 p.m. It’s the perfect job as I juggle being a wife and new mother. I can truly say I am enjoying my dream job!!!
I was raised in Riverside, California by my two loving parents Philip and Carolyn Murray. At a very young age, I remember watching News Anchors and Reporters and thinking what an incredible career. I knew then that I wanted to become a journalist and -- growing up -- I never lost the desire and determination to become a News Reporter. I eventually graduated from California State University-San Bernardino with a degree in broadcasting.
In 2001, I accepted my first job as a News Reporter at KWES in Midland, Texas. I loved every moment of my day-to-day duties of delivering valuable information to viewers and giving a voice to those in my community. Two years later, I moved to Killeen, Tex., where I worked as Bureau Chief and News Reporter for KCEN. My main assignment was covering Fort Hood which, at the time, was the largest Army base in the country. It was heart-wrenching to watch families send their loved ones off to war, knowing some would never return home. The four years I spent in Killeen taught me to appreciate every day, love my family with all my heart, and never take life for granted.
Although I found myself torn when leaving Killeen, I knew God was leading me in another direction and I had to follow his plan, which led me to Beaumont and KFDM Channel 6!!! I have never looked back. It has been incredibly rewarding to be a part of this community. Thank you for allowing me to cover your stories, to share in laughter and tears throughout the years. We have literally gone through the storm and survived! And, thank you for being a part of my story and allowing me to share it – my marriage and the birth of my two sons. I feel so blessed by the love and support I've received from my Southeast Texas family and my immediate family – the Rev. Brandon Carter and our sons B.J. and his younger brother, Nick.
