For 13 years, Kevin Torres has covered some of Colorado’s biggest stories and most memorable moments.
Torres is leaving the TV news industry after 17 years, the last 13 of which have been spent in Denver. Friday marks Torres’ last day at KDVR, where he has worked for seven years.
“Like countless others, I’ve spent my time during the pandemic thinking about what I want to do and what’s next for me,” Torres said on his Facebook page. “I’ve been a TV reporter my entire career, 17 years is a very long time, and I wouldn’t trade a second of it for the world.”
Torres says he will start a new job at Robert Half Talent Solutions next week. He hopes to connect job-seekers with well-paying and exciting jobs. He will live in Denver, which he calls home.
“Everyone at my TV station couldn’t be more grateful for the years of experience, opportunity, and friendship I’ve had; they’re the best people in the world,” Torres said.
Torres began his career as a multimedia journalist in Watertown, New York, then went on to become a reporter at WSYR in Syracuse, New York. In 2009, Torres got a job at Channel 9 in Denver and was later fired from the company in 2015. Over the years, Torres has moved to do consumer reporting for Fox 31.
“Man, what an incredible and rewarding experience this has been,” he said. “From the good news traveling every inch of this breathtaking state to covering some of Colorado’s most difficult and historic moments, I’m here to do it all.”
According to Torres, he won 12 Emmy Awards during his TV news career.
