Luis Olivas

Even before he graduated from ASU in 1978, Luis Olivas worked as a photographer for KTVK-TV in Phoenix. With the exception of a four year hiatus when he co-owned and operated a digital media company, Luis spent his broadcast career at KTVK-TV in a variety of capacities. For 18 years, Luis served as a photographer and then chief photographer for KTVK, travelling all over the country and world. From 2000 to 2004, he was the executive producer for MÁS Arizona, a 24-hour Spanish language cable news station owned and operated Cox Communication and Belo Corp, the then-owner of KTVK. After MÁS ceased operations in 2004, Luis spent the next 13 years as the News Operations Manager for KTVK, before retiring in 2017.
