WHEN YOU LOVE WHAT YOU DO, YOU'LL NEVER WORK A DAY IN YOUR LIFE!
As the years went by...
MY STORY-TELLING ABILITIES AND VIDEO CAMERA SKILLS DEVELOPED, I WAS TRULY LOVING WHAT I WAS DOING!
Every day was an adventure; each story had its emotional attachments, one day we'd be covering a colorful parade, next day shooting video of dead bodies along Texas border. Never a dull moment, I learned to appreciate life, even more, taking nothing for granted. One day here, next day gone.
ABOUT JOSE "JD" DE LEON
How it all started...
In 1981, while a senior at Harlingen High, I had an opportunity to work for KGBT-TV, a CBS affiliate station in the Rio Grande Valley. My career in Television News, began as a producer’s assistant...basically a Gofer…go for this, go for that. But it wasn’t long into my training that I experienced an incredible sight, a man with a large camera on his shoulder rushing into the Newsroom with a videotape in hand, yelling I GOT IT…as he busted thru the door to the editing booth…I was hooked!
