In April 2013, the Headliners Foundation of Texas named Kevin Reece the Best Television Reporter in the state for the third consecutive year. The Texas Associated Press Broadcasters also gave him the same honor in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Kevin is the recipient of Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for News Writing and for Feature Reporting in 2012 and 2013.
The 21-time regional Emmy winner also received Emmys as the top General Assignment Reporter, Feature Reporter, and News Writer in the Texas/Oklahoma region in 2012.
Kevin holds a Masters Degree in Journalism from Northwestern University and a degree in Business from the University of Southern California. A student Emmy nomination started his broadcast career at Palomar College in San Marcos, California where he also returned to serve as an adjunct professor.
Kevin spent his early years in the suburbs of Dallas. The son of West Texas parents, his family reunions often draw him back to San Angelo and the cotton farming community of Rotan in Fisher County. His television career has taken him from Eureka, California to Chattanooga, Tennessee to Seattle—and now Houston.
A veteran of hurricane coverage from Andrew to Ike to Isaac, Kevin has covered more than his share of natural disasters, including tornadoes in La Place, Louisiana and record floods in the Pacific Northwest.
The American Cancer Society and the Texas Medical Association have also recognized Kevin for his expertise in reporting on medical breakthroughs and research.
