It puts a smile on my face as I proudly say, "Southeast Texas is home!" I moved to Beaumont after accepting a job as the Weekend Anchor in 2007. Three years later I was promoted to News at Noon Anchor and soon after joined Dan and James in the morning. I can truly say I am enjoying my dream job!!!
I am now the anchor on News at Noon show and the Southeast Texas Live show at 3pm.
I was raised in Riverside, California by my two loving parents Philip and Carolyn Murray. At a very young age I remember watching the Anchors on the news and thinking that must be the perfect job! Growing up, I never lost the determination and drive to one day become a News Reporter and 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 getting my feet wet and learning the business hands on. Two years later I moved to Killeen, Texas where I worked as Bureau Chief and News Reporter for KCEN. My main assignment was covering Fort Hood, at the time 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 to leave Killeen, I knew God was leading me in another direction and I had to follow his plan, that plan lead me to Beaumont and KFDM Channel 6!!! I have never looked back. It has been so rewarding to be a part of this community. Thank you for allowing me to share in the laughter and tears. We have literally gone through the storm and survived! I feel so blessed by the love and support I`ve receive from my Southeast Texas family and my immediate family Rev. Brandon Carter and our son B.J.
