Kase Wilbanks grew up in the small town of Idalou, Texas, quickly learning that no matter who you are or where you come from, you have a story to tell.
Kase realized he had the opportunity to share those stories after becoming fascinated with broadcast news. He took that fascination up I-27 to West Texas A&M University and joined many organizations within the Communication Department. He served as News Director and General Manager of KWTS The One 91.1 FM, Secretary of WT's chapter of the National Broadcasting Society and was a member of WTTV Live Crew just to name a few. He was also involved in several award winning productions during his time at WT, including Steps to Promise, a documentary for the Downtown Women's Center.
While attending the university, Kase received the opportunity to intern at KCBD NewsChannel 11 in Lubbock and ended up having a chance to report for the last few weeks of the internship. These opportunities and others from WT (Go Buffs!) led to his graduating Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Broadcasting, Electronic Media.
Kase joined the ABC 7 Amarillo team shortly after in January of 2016. He is honored to share the stories of the people in the Panhandle, especially those that show just what the Panhandle Spirit is all about.
