Reporter

I’m Cindy Roller for KETR News, corresponding for Delta County and am also the Editor for the Cooper Review. While radio broadcasting is still a learning experience for me, I enjoy it as well as all aspects of print media from writing, photography, page design to seeing the smiles of readers when I deliver the newspapers.

Moving from Editor of The Twin Cities News in West Texas, I got my start in Northeast Texas as the Sports Writer/Photographer for the Sulphur Springs News-Telegram before finding my way back to a weekly paper, the Cooper Review. However, I am still most known as the tall red head on the sidelines covering football games.

Along with news, I hope KETR listeners find joy my special audio features as much as I do creating them because everyone has a story.

As always, I look forward to hearing from you!
