Christine Haas left Fox-owned station KTBC in Austin to start her own business.

Haas, who anchored evenings until she left in early June, told Austin Statesman’s Gary Dinges, she has a number of “select” clients for her new company called Christine Haas Media. She said her company is helping them “increase their media exposure, enhance their public relations and improve their on-camera performance and image.”

“I have had a very successful run on TV and I am so grateful to the many viewers who welcomed me into their home every night,” she said. “It is weird to leave TV – no doubt. But, I must admit, I wake up in the morning so excited to get to work on this new venture. It’s the same feeling I had when I started as a journalist in Amarillo, Texas, in 1998.”

Haas anchored in San Diego and Houston before coming to KTBC.  She anchored at KVUE in Austin from 2003 until 2008 and has also worked at KARE in Minneapolis, WTSP in Tampa and KTHV in Little Rock.
