In making the announcement, Whitmeyer stated, “This is a ‘coming home’ for Calvert, a Dallas native and graduate of Highland Park High School. Her tenacity, insightful storytelling and ability to produce a quality news report will be great assets to our station.”
Most recently, Collins served as anchor and reporter at KLAS-TV in Las Vegas. Prior to that, Collins was a reporter and fill-in anchor at KPTM-TV in Omaha. Collins holds a Bachelor of Journalism-Broadcast News from the University of Missouri.
Added Collins, "It is a dream come true for me to return to Dallas-Fort Worth to work for KDFW. I am a seventh-generation Texan, born and raised in Dallas, who rarely missed a FOX4 9 o'clock newscast growing up. I am thrilled to begin the next chapter of my life in my hometown."
