Rachel Smith is the Senior Producer at KTXS News and has worked in the newsroom since July 2014.
Rachel leads a team of producers that are the driving force behind our local KTXS newscasts and strives for accurate and compelling news coverage of the events that impact people’s lives.
You can’t script some of the things Rachel has experienced as a live news producer at KTXS, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. From charging cables to bleach pens, Rachel has just about anything anyone might need for an on-air emergency stashed away in her desk.
Rachel was born in Texas but grew up most of her life in Colorado. She returned to Texas in 2010 to attend Abilene Christian University. She graduated with a B.A. in English with a focus in Digital Media.
While she was at ACU, Rachel produced and edited the Ken Collums show, the JMC Network Newscast, and other projects for the ACU Journalism department.
In her free time, Rachel enjoys reading, cooking, and is trying (and failing) to learn to play the ukulele.
