Viewers of KRDO sports segments might have noticed a new face on their TV screens recently. Say hello to Danny Mata, the station's new sports reporter/anchor. 

Mata replaces Nick Rothschild, who recently departed to take a position at ABC affiliate KMGH-TV/Denver 7. 

A native of San Diego, Mata graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in communications. He comes to Colorado Springs from Fox affiliate KRIV-TV in Houston, where he was a sports producer and web reporter for three years. 

Prior to that, Mata worked as the sports director at ABC affiliate KVIA-TV in El Paso and as a sports anchor and news reporter for KROI, a radio station in Houston. 

"I’m married and my wife and I have two evil cats who rule our lives," said Mata. "I’m a huge nerd. It’s not uncommon for me to quote Star Trek. Colorado has long been a target destination for us. I’m super excited to be here and I hope to be here for a long time to come." 

Terry is a journalist and social media manager for The Gazette. He's a graduate of the University of Denver, loves the Denver Broncos, and is a member of the Television Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association.
