Joey Horta KXXV Wikipedia
Joey is from Central California, where he grew up running tractors and raising cattle on his family’s farm. In 2005, he began his career in journalism as a reporter for the Merced SunStar while interning at KFSN in Fresno. He earned a BA in communications from California State University, Stanislaus in 2006.
He received a call from the NBC affiliate in Laredo, TX, a town he had never heard of, and was offered a job over the phone a few months later. He was living on the US-Mexico border two weeks later. Joey documented drug cartel bloodshed, law enforcement corruption, and people smuggling on a daily basis while on the border. While continuing to work as a morning and noon anchor, he was soon elevated.
Joey began working as a morning anchor, weather forecaster, and producer for CBS affiliate KGBT in McAllen, Texas, in 2010. Before being elevated to early evening anchor, he tracked hurricanes and tropical storms in the Gulf of Mexico. Joey’s investigative reporting on SNAP (food stamp) fraud was broadcast on Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor, prompting a Texas congressman to introduce legislation to prevent food stamp balances from rolling over from month to month if they are not spent. Joey’s investigative work earned him a Texas Association of Broadcasters award.
He jumped at the opportunity to return to Central California as a weekend anchor/reporter for KSEE in 2014. He was promoted to morning and lunchtime anchor for the sister station, KGPE, four months later. Joey’s coverage of the ISIS-inspired stabbing attack on the University of California, Merced campus in 2015 includes an exclusive interview with Byron Price, who was stabbed while confronting the perpetrator and afterwards hailed a hero by the Sheriff.
The exclusive interview distinguished KGPE’s coverage from that of other stations, including national networks. Joey and the station received an Emmy Award as a result of the coverage. His story on local Volkswagen Beetle collectors who are keeping the Bug alive despite production ending was nominated for an Emmy in 2019.
