New correspondent for CBS Newspath

Jan 21, 2014

CBS Newspath welcomes Omar Villafranca as a correspondent. Previously a reporter at NBC Dallas-Fort Worth for the last six years, Villafranca now joins CBS as a Dallas-based correspondent for its 24-hour television newsgathering service, providing news to all the network's affiliates.

"Congratulations @OmarVillafranca! Awesome news! Hope we still cross paths on the trail," tweeted Natalie Solis at Fox 4 Dallas.

"Training in NY w/@cbsnewspath before heading back to Dallas," Villafranca tweeted last week, before adding, "Walked into CBS News hallway & saw THIS. #UhOh."
