KTXS Interim Sports Director Jason Lewis

Jason Lewis is Sports Director for KTXS. New Jersey born and raised, Jason is excited to continue his career in the Big Country.

Jason previously worked as a freelance sports reporter and producer for News 12 The Bronx/Brooklyn and News 12 New Jersey for two and a half years. While working for News 12, he was lucky enough to cover Super Bowl XLVIII, two Yankees postseason runs, and the Nets move to Brooklyn. His most memorable moment, however, was being present for LIU-Brooklyn's Jason Brickman becoming the fourth player in NCAA basketball history to record 1,000 career assists.

In May of 2011, Jason graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University. While at ASU, he was a sports reporter for Cronkite NewsWatch. Meanwhile, he also gained valuable experience at his internships with KPNX, 3TV and CBS News New York. Jason bleeds maroon and gold, and loves to cheer on his Sun Devils!

When he's not out covering our local teams, you can find Jason in the gym, spending time with friends, or throwing around a lacrosse ball. A true lacrosse fanatic, he played in high school, college, and still plays for a men's team. Aside from his Sun Devils, Jason is a huge fan of the Baltimore Ravens, New York Yankees, and Brooklyn Nets.
