Christopher Ambriz

Who I Am

I went to Del Mar College and studied RTV and Journalism with Mac Aipperspach and Manuel Flores. My primary goal was to work either in Television or Film. In 2000 I got my first job working at the Distance Learning Center from 2000 to 2004. I worked on the “What’s Your Dream” Ad Campaign, also filming various Tele-Course Video Productions and production crew on the “Del Mar NOW” TV show. In addition I worked in their TV studio running Master Control on Channel 19. While I was working at Del Mar College I started at the Corpus Christi Caller Times working in the Sports Department from 2000 to 2002 as a News Assistant. In 2002 I started working at KIII TV 3 in the Production Department and in 2004 moved over to the News Department and worked as a Photojournalist/MMSJ. I’ve covered many major breaking local news stories for the past 12 years in the South Texas Area. I have 16 years of experience editing, shooting, writing, assignment desk operations and live shot experience in the field. I’ve also in my spare time, directed award winning short films, music videos and local commercials. In addition, I’m a sculptor, painter and special make-up effects artist self-taught.

What I Do at Texas A&M-Kingsville

I’ll cover feature stories and news events highlighting the faculty, staff and students of Texas A&M University- Kingsville. From those stories I’ll produce exciting and entertaining news features and media content featuring the sights and sounds of Texas A&M-Kingsville for everyone to enjoy.

My Texas A&M-Kingsville Story

During my time at KIII, I had covered several news events on campus since 2004. I’ve always had a great time covering campus events and the staff were always very nice and courteous to me. When the opportunity for me to advance in my career and to be a part of the Texas A&M University - Kingsville team, I jumped at the opportunity! Now I’ll be able to tell great visual stories incorporating everything I’ve learned out in the field and bring it here to Texas A&M - Kingsville.
