“I’m very pleased to have someone of Jeff’s experience not only on the anchor desk but on the reporting front,” KENS president and general manager Bob McGann said in a statement. “He has tremendous experience covering national and international stories.”
Goldblatt replaces Jeff Vaughn, who was let go from the CBS-affiliate last week, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
“I was disappointed,” Vaughn said. “I’m sad I’m not going to do news there anymore … but I’m ready for the next chapter, and happy to spend time with my son.”
Goldblatt, a former Fox News Channel correspondent, will begin in late August at KENS. He will anchor alongside Deborah Knapp at 5 p.m. and Sarah Lucero at 6 and 1o p.m.
