Anchor Tom Crespo Reunites with News Director at Texoma’s KXII

Texoma CBS-affiliate KXII announced on Tuesday that it had hired Tom Crespo to co-anchor the station’s evening newscasts. Crespo, who was most recently an anchor for Dallas’s KDAF, will join Maureen Kane at the anchor desk beginning January 3rd.
