Following a months-long audition, Brian Sanders has been named permanent weekend morning anchor at KXAN.
In taking on the new role, Sanders, who has been with the Austin NBC-affiliate since 2006, will leave behind his previous post as weekend sports anchor.
“For the longevity of my career, I felt it was best to switch to news,” Sanders told The Listening Post. “Local TV sports is a tough business. Several markets have stations that have downsized their sports departments.”
A Houston native, Sanders began his broadcasting career at KSAN in San Angelo, TX.
