Little Rock Morning Anchor Heads to Texas

By Kevin Eck 

KTHV morning anchor Rob Evans is moving to Austin, Texas to work at Tegna sister station KVUE.

“’This Is Home’ is more than a tagline. It’s true,” said Evans. “The people at THV11 are family and it’s been an amazing five years. I will miss the people of Arkansas dearly. You can call it southern charm or southern hospitality, but whatever it is: Arkansas and its people have it.”

Evans, who has worked at the Little Rock CBS affiliate since 2016, starts at his new station in mid-June.


“We’re excited Rob is staying within the Tegna family,” said news director Shayla Teater. “He leaves behind a wonderful impact on our station and we’ll miss the fun and energy he brings in the early mornings to our newsroom!”
