Bobby Benally joined KCBD in April of 2018, where he started out as an Associate Producer, editing videos for the 4, 5, 6, & 10p.m. newscasts. After a few months, Bobby was promoted to Producer where he produced the 4 and 5 newscasts. He now is the News Now Anchor/Reporter for the Daybreak Today Show.
Bobby grew up in eastern New Mexico in a small town called San Jon. While growing up, Bobby always knew he wanted to be involved in law enforcement and wanted to become a police officer. But he was also interested with news. Whether it was the Today Show in the mornings, Nightly News on NBC, local newscasts in New Mexico or the Texas Panhandle, or Sportscenter on ESPN in the evenings. He became hooked on broadcast TV.
Bobby pursued that broadcasting dream by attending Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, New Mexico. He graduated with a Communications degree with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism. During his time there, he produced and anchored newscasts, for the KENW-TV News 3 New Mexico.
During his free time, Bobby enjoys the occasional round of golf and is a huge sports fan for Texas Tech Athletics, the Dallas Cowboys, and the New York Yankees (basically any live sporting event that is on TV, he is going to find a way to watch it!)
Bobby also loves spending time with his beautiful wife Kortney, his family back in New Mexico, and their spoiled basset hound “Kovu.” Kortney and Bobby are also expecting their first child, (their “lil nuggie”) that is due in March of 2022.
Bobby is excited to be a part of the KCBD family and is proud to bring you the Coverage You Can Count On.
