ShaVonne Herndon is thrilled to be working for KYTX here in East Texas, just up the road from her hometown of Houston.
ShaVonne left the big city to pursue a degree in broadcast journalism from Abilene Christian University.
As an announcer for KACU and a reporter for KXN-TV at ACU, ShaVonne won several awards in radio and television, from news to sports.
The summer before her senior year ShaVonne gained valuable experience at KTRK, in Houston, as reporter intern. Upon graduation from ACU's centennial class in May 2006, she accepted a reporting position at KTAB-TV in Abilene, Texas. While there, ShaVonne covered stories ranging in scope from wildfires to the plight of Hurricane Katrina evacuees. After a brief stint in Abilene, ShaVonne moved on to Waco, where she worked as a reporter for KWTX. Now, she looks forward to meeting new people and telling the stories of East Texans.
The broadcast journalism bug bit ShaVonne when she worked as a reporter for LCTV, at Lamar High School.
When she's not at work, ShaVonne enjoys attending sporting events, traveling, and spending time with her family. This down home Texan can't get enough of her Uncle Jack's bar-be-que!
ShaVonne is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and attends Woodland Hills Church of Christ. She thanks Cecil and Ann Herndon, her parents, for their love, support, and the sacrifices they've made through her career.
