Jacob Reyes is the Digital Producer, updating our website, social media and monitoring the ever-so-welcoming comment section on Facebook.

Born and raised in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Reyes grew up watching WFAA and reading the Dallas Morning News. His passion for journalism lies in telling stories of marginalized communities that too often go untold in the mainstream media. Reyes is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington where he worked at The Shorthorn, the award-winning campus newspaper that he still holds dear to his heart. There, Reyes was a multicultural affairs reporter, entertainment editor and opinion editor.

Since graduating, Reyes has contributed to the Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer and NPR station KERA covering issues of social justice, arts, culture and identity in America. He also interned for KAGS during the 2020 election season, providing updates on polling information and results.

In his spare time, Reyes is either thinking about working out, working out, reading the opinion section of any print publication, or having a drink with his college buddies and chosen family.
