Maggie Contreras is the executive producer  at KTXS.

Originally from New Hampshire, Maggie lived in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Tennessee before moving to the great state of Texas.

Maggie gained her love for news while working for her high school TV station, KGLE, at Allen High School in the DFW metroplex. She then went on to spend the best four years of her life at the University of Missouri in the Missouri School of Journalism. MIZ! In college, she reported and produced for the Mizzou-owned NBC affiliate, KOMU.

She moved to Abilene right out of college in May 2011 to work as the 6/10 producer. For the past 3 years, Maggie has had her hands on every news show produced at KTXS.

When she’s not at work, Maggie enjoys spending time with friends, playing with her basset mix, Anni, and curling up with a good book.
