Christian von Preysing
I'm not from the Valley, but South Texas feels like home. I started reporting Laredo at KGNS-TV. I covered immigration, organized crime and border security. I was there when Donald Trump made his first campaign visit to the border.
I went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying computer science, journalism and anthropology. I used to want to work with monkeys! Speaking of animals, I do a lot of stories about wildlife. The Rio Grande Valley is growing quickly. It's also important to ask how we're conserving the animals and places that make this place unique.
I was born in Bethlehem, Pa. I'm part Ecuadorian. I speak Spanish. And I contribute to the 5.2 Somos El Valle newscasts.
Thank you for visiting, and feel free to get in touch.
