NewsChannel 10’s Ali Allison, Shelden Breshears to Host WT Homecoming Parade

CANYON, Texas — The popular cohosts of NewsChannel 10’s morning shows will return as hosts of West Texas A&M University’s Homecoming parade. 

Ali Allison and Shelden Breshears will broadcast live throughout the parade, which kicks off at 1 p.m. Oct. 1 along Russell Long Boulevard on the WT campus in Canyon. 

“Shelden and I are thrilled to be back as emcees for this year’s ‘WT Through the Decades’ parade,” Allison said. “WT Homecoming brings Buffs from around the nation back to Canyon, and we’re happy to broadcast the parade throughout the Panhandle to bring the party to those who can’t come in person.” 

The parade will broadcast MeTV, channel 10.4 or cable channel 127, as well as on WT’s YouTube channel,; NewsChannel 10’s Facebook page; and WT’s homepage, 

NewsChannel 10 also will broadcast the WT Football game versus the University of Texas–Permian Basin. Kickoff is 7 p.m. Oct. 1 from Bain-Schaeffer Buffalo Stadium on the WT campus. 

The parade will begin at the First United Bank Center, traveling west along Russell Long Boulevard and ending at the Sybil B. Harrington Fine Arts Complex. 

The Countdown to Kickoff Block Party tailgate will begin immediately after the parade along 26th Street across from Bain-Schaeffer Buffalo Stadium. 

Allison is a 14-year veteran of the NewsChannel 10 newsroom. She anchors the “Early Show,” “Second Cup” and “News at Noon.” 

Breshears was born and raised in Portales, New Mexico, and attended college at WT, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in broadcasting and electronic media in 2018. He has worked in several roles at NewsChannel 10 before landing as the morning meteorologist for the “Early Show” and a co-host of “Second Cup.” 

Maintaining strong community ties is a component of the University’s long-range plan, WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World. 

That plan is fueled by the historic, $125 million One West comprehensive fundraising campaign. To date, the five-year campaign — which publicly launched Sept. 23 — has raised more than $110 million.
