Travis Recek got his start in the news business as a sports reporter in Midland in 2003 and has been your go-to guy for sports updates ever since. Travis is a born-and-raised Austinite who is now one of the lucky few who get to report for the community they grew up in. Since 2015, Travis has been a Spectrum News Austin reporter. Prior to that, he was just a few hours down the road at Spectrum News San Antonio.
Travis is passionate about storytelling, which is apparent by the multiple Associated Press awards he’s won for doing just that. When Travis isn’t at work, he’s either at home with his girlfriend and house full of pets, spending time with his extended family in Central Texas, or indulging in the famous queso from Maudi’s.
