FHS Graduate and Former Broadcast Student to Begin Work in Nashville

Dec 02, 2014

In October 2012, Matthew Torres stopped by the Frisco ISD Career and Technical Education Center to share news with his former broadcast teacher, Eva Coleman, of landing his first television station job at KTAB-TV, the CBS affiliate in Abilene, Texas. His most recent stop this year was to visit before his start with WTVF NewsChannel 5, the CBS affiliate in Nashville, Tennessee, where he'll serve as a morning reporter.

"Matthew is so talented and I love being able to witness his continuous rise in this industry," Coleman said. "He always comes back to visit, paying it forward, and words cannot express my level of pride."

Torres is a 2007 Frisco High School graduate and served as a reporter for the school's news program, RACC-TV. Coleman launched RACC-TV in 2004 and served as Executive Producer until 2008 before going on to launch the District-wide student produced program, Frisco ISD-TV.

Torres is also a Cum Laude graduate of the University of North Texas with a degree in Converged Broadcast Media. In addition, he interned with Dallas-Fort Worth's CBS 11. He often visits Coleman's Audio/Video Production classes at the Career and Technical Education Center to share his experiences.
