Clay Falls joined the KBTX news family in January 2010 and is excited to be covering the Bryan/College Station area. Prior to joining the Brazos Valley news leader, Clay was a reporter for more than two years with CBS 19 in Tyler-Longview, Texas.
Clay has lived in the Lone Star State his whole life, having grown up in Fort Worth and Granbury.
Since elementary school, he knew he would be either a pediatrician or a TV reporter one day and was actually a biochemistry/pre-med major his first two years of college. That was before switching to his true calling.
Clay graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin. While in college he interned at the NBC affiliate in Austin and also served as an anchor, reporter, photographer and producer for KVR News, UT’s weekly student-produced news station.
He has received several awards for his work and was one of the first ever Fox News College Challenge National Champions. Clay and two fellow students at UT wrote and produced a three minute story on the Texas death penalty in Huntsville and were chosen as the winners for the nationwide contest. He and his classmates appeared on “Dayside with Linda Vester” on Fox News Channel in New York in April 2005 and split a $10,000 scholarship prize. The UT Journalism School also received a matching $10,000 grant.
In his free time Clay enjoys snow skiing, slaloming on the lake, running, working out, catching up on movies and spending time with family and friends. One of his newest hobbies is running the B/CS and Cowtown "Fort Worth" Marathons.
He is also on the young adult ministry team and sings in the choir at First United Methodist Church in Bryan, is on the leadership council for the American Red Cross Brazos Valley Chapter, the Brazos Valley Texas Exes, and is a member of Young Professionals of Aggieland.
He's also excited to report his younger sister is in the Texas A&M Class of 2016.
Clay is honored to be covering Aggieland and hopes you’ll say hello if you see him. Feel free to e-mail story ideas anytime.
