San Antonio Anchor Heading to Seattle

By Kevin Eck 

Aaron Wright has left San Antonio Tegna-owned CBS affiliate KENS.

The evening anchor announced the news on Twitter Monday, saying he’s been blessed to call San Antonio home for the last four years.

“I’m grateful for my time spent with the @KENS5 team and proud of everything we accomplished,” he wrote. “My last shows here will be tomorrow—thanks for watching and supporting!”


While Wright didn’t say where he was going, Houston media writer Mike McGuff speculates he may be joining Tegna station KING after Wright’s co-anchor Sharon Ko tweeted that Wright is heading to Seattle.

Before working at KENS, Wright was an anchor and reporter at Tegna’s WBIR in Knoxville, Tenn. He’s also worked as an anchor and reporter at WREX in Rockford, Ill.
