KTVT Adds Reporters Gabriel Roxas and Jeff Paul

KTVT1

KTVT, the CBS-owned station in Dallas, has added reporters Gabriel Roxas and Jeff Paul to its news team.

Roxas spent the past two years at Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV. Jeff Paul’s last name is actually Skrzypek, but he’s changing it to Paul (something simpler and easier to pronounce) for his new job.

Paul spent the past three years as Jeff Skrzypek at NBC affiliate WPTV in West Palm Beach, Fla. KTVT director of communications Lori Conrad confirmed both new hires to Uncle Barky’s Bytes yesterday.

Roxas starts on December 8 and Paul starts on December 15.

We’re talking about journalists who have played huge roles in the landscape of TV news in the DFW market. Who wouldn’t want to watch a familiar face?”
