Austin NBC-affiliate KXAN introduced Robert Maxwell to viewers this morning, announcing that Maxwell would join the morning anchor desk on March 12.
Maxwell comes to KXAN from KTVX in Salt Lake City, where he served as the station’s primary evening anchor. In addition to co-anchoring KXAN’s morning newscast, Maxwell will work as an investigative reporter.
“I’m pleased to welcome a journalist of Robert’s caliber to the KXAN team,” KXAN news director Michael Fabac said this week. “Robert’s personality will help engage the a.m. news audience and serve as a terrific compliment to anchor Sally Hernandez.”
Maxwell is taking over Chris Willis’s seat alongside Hernandez. KXAN recently announced that Willis had been tapped to lead its investigative team.
A native of Canada who began his TV career in Toronto, Maxwell worked as a weekend anchor and reporter at WFTV in Orlando before joining Salt Lake City’s KTVX.
