Victor was born in San Antonio and raised on the border in both Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. In 1981, Victor landed a job working as a news photographer for a CBS affiliate in Laredo, Texas. He has been a journalist ever since.
During his 30-year career, Victor has worked as a photographer, editor, reporter, producer, assignments editor, columnist, teacher, consultant, news anchor and news director. In the early 1980s, Victor crossed over into Spanish television with a job at KWEX-TV in San Antonio.

For 20 years he was a contributing columnist for the San Antonio Express-News as well as a syndicated writer for the Hispanic Link News Service, Victor has also written a Spanish language weekly column for Conexion, the San Antonio Express-News’ bicultural publication.

Molly Cox grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, where she spent the better part of her adult life as a “radio personality.” In 2006, Molly moved to San Antonio. Since then, her quest to emcee (nay, MC) all the things has truly taken form. She especially thanks the organizers of TEDxSanAntonio for contributing to her lofty goal. Her passion for theatre has led her to direct for and perform in local theatre productions, including the recent “Ragtime” production for The Playhouse at the Empire Theater.
You can catch her as Lucille in “Dearly Departed” at The Sheldon Vexler Theatre starting October 18 and running through November 17. Her focus in strengthening nonprofits led her to start her own consulting business, Nonprofit Fancy Pants, in 2011. In 2012, she was named one of the San Antonio Business Journal’s 40 under 40, to which she replied, “Muahahah! Suckers.” Though it is hard to believe she allows herself to be hemmed in by a real job, she is in fact the Chief of Engagement for SA2020, the community’s vision for making San Antonio “world-class.”
