She will stay within the Tegna family to pursue what she calls her ‘dream job’, according to My San Antonio.com.
“My ultimate dream is to anchor in my hometown. With some hard work, faith and dedication, I’m hoping that will happen one day,” Neaves said to the paper.
“Alicia is a great member of our team. I’m so proud of her and glad we are able to keep her in the TEGNA family as she continues to grow,” KENS news director Jack Acosta told the station.
Neaves began at WOAI-TV in production.
She continued to West Texas where she reported for two years before returning to the CBS affiliate in October 2015 where she has been ever since.
