Parris Kane joined the 12News team as a reporter in April 2018.

Kane is a Texas A&M graduate who was born and raised in the "Deep East Texas" city of Longview.

She discovered her passion for storytelling while completing internships in broadcast newsrooms in Little Rock and College Station.

A chance meeting on a walking trail led to Kane's first name when her parents met in Paris, Texas.

Kane who loves Jesus, writing, all things baseball and "fightin' Texas Aggie Football," is looking forward to becoming a part of the Southeast Texas community along with her Dachshund, "Jake."
