A familiar face has returned to Austin CBS-affiliate KEYE: Fred Cantu, who left the station in December, is filling in as morning anchor on an interim basis, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Cantu was with KEYE for eight years before he left. During his time at the station, he served a variety of different roles, including morning and evening anchor. He was also the anchor for the station’s Telemundo newscasts, which air on a digital subchannel of KEYE.

Prior to joining KEYE, Cantu was an anchor for KTBC and KVUE, both in Austin. The veteran anchor replaces Erika Gonzalez, who shared the news of her departure on Twitter last week.
