Colin Deaver leaves KTSM 9 El Paso

Colin Deaver left his KTSM 9 El Paso sports director role on March 26, 2024. 

"Rarely have I ever felt as overwhelmed with love as I have the last few weeks," Deaver posted.  "It has been the honor of my life to be the Sports Director at KTSM. Thank you so much to my friends, family and coworkers, especially Andy Morgan KTSM and everyone who was a part of this beautiful send-off for me last night. It’s far more than I deserve. Thank you, El Paso, for allowing me to mean just a little bit to a place that has meant the absolute world to me."

UPDATE: Sam Guzman takes over the role of sports director. 

Deaver joined KTSM 9 in May 2018 as the weekend sports anchor/reporter. In 2022, he became the sports director. 

He worked for KAGS College Station from 2015 to 2016 as a sports anchor/reporter and then as the sports director.

Deaver got his first full-time broadcasting job as a weekday sports anchor/reporter for KSWO 7 Lawton, Oklahoma. Before that, the University of Oregon grad worked as a part-time sports videographer/reporter for KMTR NewSource 16 Eugene, Oregon, while he was in school.
