KWTX Adds Evening Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

Tara Mergener is set to join Waco, Texas CBS affiliate KWTX as 10 p.m. anchor in mid-September. She’ll also serve as executive producer for the evening newscasts.

Mergener, who has worked as a freelance correspondent for CBS News, CBS Entertainment, CNN and Hearst-Argyle Television in Washington, will join Gordon Collier, Rusty Garrett and Ed Sorensen on the anchor desk.

“KWTX is continually looking to elevate our newscasts, especially when it comes to covering the breaking news that has an impact on our viewers’ daily lives,” said KWTX news director Mikel Lauber. “We believe Tara is the perfect fit to continue to push us in the right direction.”
