ABC-7 Xtra: Passing the Torch, ABC-7 enters new era

EL PASO, Texas – Over the years, ABC-7 has seen many changes. From the people you see on-air to the technology that goes into gathering and reporting the news.

One of the faces familiar to long-time KVIA viewers belongs to Kevin Lovell. After 40 years in television news, Kevin is saying goodbye.

Kevin worked in many roles. His last role would earn him the title of longest-serving commercial TV station general manager in Texas. Kevin announced his retirement in January.

More than 40 years in the news business means a significant influence on many lives and the quality of journalism in the Borderland.

On Sunday, ABC-7 Xtra bids farewell to Kevin in a special episode looking back on his contributions, the people he influenced and how television news has evolved in the Borderland.
