Jason Britsch refers to himself as the “one-man band ” at KOSA CBS 7 in Odessa who has covered everything from City Council to wildfires.

“My favorite thing I got to do was live shots during large grassfires that threatened homes because that moment of having all that action going on while you’re talking was amazing,” Britsch said.

Britsch, a Texas State University alumna who graduated December 2010, grew up in Hondo, a town bordering San Antonio.
