Mintie Betts joined the KETK digital team in May 2019 as a content producer. She is a native East Texan where she grew up in Tyler and has seen it develop over the years.
She graduated from Texas A&M University with two Bachelor of Science Degrees in Agricultural Leadership & Development and Agricultural Communications & Journalism.
While earning her degree, Mintie interned with TexAgs where she photographed Texas A&M sports including the SEC Softball Tournament. While baseball is her favorite sport to watch, her most fond memory was watching the historic football game that led A&M to take down LSU 74-72 in 7OTs and rushing the field afterward.
Mintie’s lifelong goal is to visit all 50 states, 12 of which have been accomplished. She has also visited four different countries, Belize and Mexico, which have been on study abroad trips during college.
While pursuing her Master’s in Digital Strategy, Mintie is fulfilling her dream of living in a tiny home out in the country with her 1-year-old mini Australian Shepard named Jesse!
