Cassandra Webb joined Team 20 in October 2020 and is excited to call Arkansas home again.
She and her husband Aaron, an Air Force C-130 pilot, lived in Arkansas previously from 2005-2012. She was a public school teacher who then worked in marketing for the USAF. During that time, Cassandra earned her Master’s degree in Journalism from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Her husband’s Air Force career has given Cassandra the unique opportunity to cover news all across the country. Her television news career started at KTXS in Abilene, Texas. Her work there earned her a Texas Associated Press Broadcasters’ Award for General Assignment reporting. She also anchored the market’s #1-rated morning news program.
Cassandra then went on to anchor and produce the 5 p.m. news program at WRBL in Columbus, Georgia.
From there, Cassandra worked for an online news organization in Washington, D.C. Several stories she wrote during the 2016 presidential election reached millions of readers.
Cassandra then headed to Sacramento, California where she managed Special Projects for KTXL-FOX 40.
Her work in Sacramento on behalf of a family desperate for their loved one’s remains to return home from WW2 earned her the prestigious Large Market Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for Feature Reporting.
It’s also at KTXL where she earned an Associated Press Television and Radio Association Award for Best Public Service for her story about frustrated military families living in hazardous conditions on Travis AFB.
Cassandra was born and raised in the small Texas border town of Del Rio. She earned her undergraduate degree in Journalism from Angelo State University.
She has interests outside of the newsroom which include reading, sewing, enjoying the outdoors, binge-watching true crime shows and calling the Hogs.
Cassandra and her husband have two young daughters.
