Merle Bertrand is Director of Programming and a lead Play-by-Play Announcer for K-MAC Sports. A graduate of the University of Texas, Merle is an established figure in the Austin film community, both as a filmmaker and as a film journalist. Merle’s film background merged with broadcasting when he interviewed Chuck Licata for his documentary on short track stock car racing, an interview that introduced him to K-MAC Sports.

Now in his 7th year as a broadcaster, Merle (merle@kmacsports.com) is also the Sports Editor for the Liberty Hill Leader and LibertyHillSports.com. He has just completed the documentary Go for Two – The Return of Southwestern University Football and is editing Between the Twenties, a documentary on semi-pro football. He currently resides in Austin with his “better half” Kristina Weber, and their two lovably annoying cats, waiting patiently for the Cubs to win a World Series.
Suna Venkat
Marketing and Technical Production
Suna Venkat handles Marketing and Technical Production. She graduated a semester early from the McCoy College of Business at Texas State University, with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, so she could travel around Asia and explore different cultures before jumping into the world of sports production and marketing. Her passion for sports related marketing and background in technology and project management landed her at K-MAC Sports.

She is the proud producer of Southwestern Pirates Football, Concordia Tornados Baseball, and hundreds of high school events.
Kristina Weber
Director, Communications and Social Media
Kristina Weber is our Communications and Social Media Director and leads our Quality Assurance Department. She and the QA team ensure that all broadcasts are on the air and of the highest quality, a feature that sets K-MAC Sports apart from our competitors. Kristina also keeps the K-MAC Sports name active on Twitter and Facebook (www.facebook.com/kmacsports), which is the best way to contact her.

A Houston native, Kristina is a talented writer and photographer. Admittedly and surprisingly not a big sports fan, she is drawn to the K-MAC community by the athletes whose stories we tell and the families for whom we broadcast. She resides in Austin with Merle Bertrand and their two cats Frankie and Renata, who cheer for the Panthers or Lions whenever they play Bulldogs, Foxes or Wolves.
