Cassandra Webb Joins KATV Morning Newscast

By Kevin Eck 

Cassandra Webb has joined Little Rock, Ark., ABC affiliate KATV.

“So thrilled to announce today is my first day as the newest team member at @KATVNews,” she wrote on social media. “Catch me on weekdays on Channel 7 Daybreak with @WPXIRyanHouston and @KATVMelinda soon!”

Webb also described her new job as a “new beginning, the turning of a page”


She joins fellow newcomer Ryan Houston (pictured with Webb) who started at the station in January, and meteorologist Melinda Mayo, who has been at KATV since 1996.

Webb comes from Little Rock’s KARKKLRT where she was an anchor and reporter. She’s also worked in Washington, D.C. and in Sacramento.

“It’s a true honor to continue the legacy of KATV Daybreak,” Webb said. “I am thrilled to work alongside respected and beloved local talent like Ryan Houston and Melinda Mayo, as well as the rest of the team at Channel 7. My family and I chose to plant our roots in central Arkansas for a reason: we love the people here. I’ll never take for granted the privilege it is to serve this community by starting their mornings with relevant stories and hopefully, a smile or two.”

“It is exciting to have journalists like Ryan and Cassandra joining our team,” said KATV general manager Mark Rose. “The experience they bring to the table will help us continue to grow and tell the stories of Arkansans.”
