News 92's Mike Barajas let me know his son, Bill, is moving up to a higher TV market.

For the last three years, the younger Barajas has been working as a reporter at KRGV in the Rio Grande Valley. But starting Monday, August 12th, Bill moves up to KSAT, San Antonio's top rated station.

"KRGV was my first job and an experience I'll never forget," Bill Barajas told "I covered everything from cartels to human and drug stash houses. My move to KSAT was made possible with the experience and hard work I put in there and the guidance of my father and cousin Erik.

"Erik worked at KSAT before moving up to KTRK. He always talked about the first rate station that they run there and I couldn't be more excited."

Naturally Bill's dad, Mike, is very excited.

"Bill is a graduate of the University of Houston just like his old man and he is following in the broadcasting footsteps," the elder Barajas told "After completing his 3-year stint in South Texas he is moving to the number one station in San Antonio."

According to his bio, Bill interned at four different stations in Houston - Fox 26 KRIV, abc13 KTRK, Telemundo, and KIAH CW39. I personally remember seeing him intern when I was at KTRK.

I've said it before, long live the Barajas TV dynasty!  And you would have known about this move weeks ago if you had followed me on Facebook.  I posted it there first!
