Born in Texas, Tristan Hardy grew up in Dallas and earned his B.A. from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. The same place where he pledged the Phi Delta chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity, Inc. He’s also a member of the National Association of Black Journalist.

Tristan’s excited to call Decatur and WAND home. Prior to WAND, Tristan was a bureau reporter over in Longview, Tx with CBS 19 in Tyler. There he took pride in being the only reporter in East Texas who wore bow ties and Members Only jackets in his reports. While reporting, he looks into how he can make story telling different for viewers. 

Tristan has also covered tornadoes, including the after math of the destruction of Canton, Tx in 2017. In addition, he was active-reporting the investigation of a missing 20-year-old who was eight months pregnant.  

His spare time is spent collecting vinyl records, reading comic books and spending time watching shows on Netflix and Hulu. You have a better chance finding him overly active on Twitter.
