Who are you?
- I'm Desmond Salamanca, born and raised right here in San Angelo, Texas. I graduated from Central High School and attended Angelo State University.
What are your interests?
- I love movies, music, art, photography, really any form of expression. I live for those moments when you see something that leaves you in awe because of someone else's unique vision. Everyone is influenced by somebody, what others do should drive and inspire you to try something new. Use other artists as a reference point to forge your own path, you'll find your own voice along the way.
What do you like about working at FOX West Texas?
- I love getting free stuff that comes with being a FOX affiliate. Just kidding, for me, it's the adrenaline rush I get preparing for and directing a show. Once we're live, you strive to be flawless, but this is live TV and you never know what is going to happen. All you can do is assess and react, make a mistake, leave it in the past and move forward. There is no time to dwell on what you can't change.
What's one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
- As much as I love Texas, I absolutely hate the heat. I would rather have snow consistently than anything above 80 degrees and sun. Remind me to move up north if you see me out and about.
