A fixture on the local sports scene for 12 years and a proud native San Antonian, Hector is thrilled to serve as Sports 2Nite’s Sports Director!
A graduate of Central Catholic and of Syracuse University, there’s very little Hector hasn’t done professionally since 20005. As a TV anchor and reporter, he’s a two-time state-wide winner of the Texas AP award for “Best Sports Story.” He also won first place for “Best Sports Feature” in the Houston Press Club’s Lone Star Awards, has twice been nominated for a Lone Star Emmy, and has received several other honors from the Texas AP. In 2014, Hector launched his own radio show, hosting Halftime Sports with Hector Ledesma on ESPN 1250 AM. And while he didn’t let go of the TV side, anchoring shows such as Sports Weekly, UTSA Football Insider and delivering News Briefs on KCWX TV and Fox 38 in Corpus Christi, it was his radio show’s evolution that eventually made San Antonio history. On April 2nd, 2016 The Ticket Live became San Antonio’s first ever live simulcast TV/Radio sports show by airing on KCWX and Ticket 760 AM while partnering with the San Antonio Express-News. In addition, over the last three years Hector served as host of several UTSA, UIW and Texas State Halftime and Post-game shows, while also manning the sidelines for those game broadcasts. The last two high school football seasons, Hector handled play-by-play, and sometimes, analyst duties for the Texas Sports Radio Network. You can now catch him nightly on Sports 2Nite on KCWX, covering the news and stories that matter to his hometown.
Feel free to shoot Hector any feature ideas you might have at firstname.lastname@example.org. He believes everyone has a story and he draws great passion from aiming to do those stories justice.
When not at work, Hector tries to spend every second he can with his wife Vanessa, his daughter Mia and their four-legged little one, Sampson. Hector’s parents are his role models and there’s not much he enjoys more than spending time with family and friends.
