Six months after leaving KDFW, Fiona Gorostiza is joining San Antonio ABC affiliate KSAT as the host of a new local lifestyle show, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
“It feels so good to be able to return to Texas, and to fulfill my dream of hosting a new program for such a powerful station,” ” Gorostiza said. The Express-News has details on the show, which will debut this fall:
… Two things instantly set KSAT’s “SA Live” apart: It will air in the afternoon, and it will come live from a downtown location — The Buckhorn saloon and museum on Houston Street — rather than a studio.
“The vibrancy at The Buckhorn really lends itself to the type of program we want to produce,” KSAT general manager Phil Lane said.
“SA Live,” described as a variety, game, interview and entertainment show rolled into one, will air at 1 p.m. Katie Couric’s syndicated “Katie” will be dropped from KSAT’s 2 p.m. hour so ABC’s “General Hospital,” which currently airs at 1 p.m., can slide into that slot.
