Darryl Bruffett celebrates 35 years at KBTX


Darryl Bruffett is celebrating 35 years with News 3 KTBX Bryan-College Station.

In fact, August 3, 2022 was declared “Darryl Bruffett Day” by the mayor of College Station Karl Mooney.

As you will see in the photos below, the KBTX staff wore mustaches in honor of Bruffett's signature look. 

Bruffett joined KBTX in August 1987 and was named sports director in 1990.

Accepting a job with KBTX changed Bruffett's job in more ways than just starting his television news career. 

The former Texas AP Sportscaster of the Year met his wife, Lori, at the station while she was working in the sales department.

Fast forward and Lori Bruffett was promoted to the position of KBTX's general manager in 2020 from the station manager role which she had held since 2014.
