Freixys Casado is a reporter for NewsChannel 10 in Amarillo, Texas.
She was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, and in 2011 she moved to the United States to go to college.
She graduated from Temple University main campus in Philadelphia, PA with a bachelor's degree in Journalism.
Before joining the NewsChannel 10 team, Freixys was a production assistant for NBC10/Telemundo62. Her work with Telemundo got her a nomination for a Mid-Atlantic Emmy in the category of newscast morning.
She is excited to start a new chapter in front of the camera, telling the stories that matter the most to the community of Amarillo.
When Freixys is not in the news station, she loves binge watching shows, dancing and creating memories with friends and family.
Throughout the years, the Wesley Community Service has provided recreational and educational activities to the elderly in our area, but after closing during the pandemic, they started receiving calls from isolated seniors seeking help.
Family Support Services (FSS) and the Amarillo Public Health Department (APHD) have united to implement this initiative, which is designed to provide hope and empowerment to families impacted by suicide.
