Eric Pointer

Eric Pointer joined WFXR in August 2018 as a multi-media journalist.

With a father in the Air Force, Eric was able to live all over the world but will always claim Fort Worth, Texas as his hometown. 

He graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Telecommunications and Media Studies with a minor in Journalism. Eric is the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggies.

After graduation he was a reporter/photographer for the ABC station in Bryan, TX. He traveled North to work at an NBC station in Dayton, Ohio before spending time back South as part of the news team for the CBS station in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Eric loves telling people's stories and keeping viewers well-informed.

When he's not in the field you can find him trying things in the kitchen, spending time with old friends, or making new ones. He isn't afraid to try new things or get his hands dirty for the sake of the job. He might be far from home in Texas, but Eric will remain a Cowboys, Mavericks and Rangers fan until the day he dies.
