Traffic Anchor Erica Brennes Leaving KEYE

By Aneya Fernando 

Erica-Brennes1After three years at Austin CBS affiliate KEYE, traffic anchor Erica Brennes has decided to leave the station. Not only is Brennes leaving KEYE, she’s leaving TV news altogether to work for a startup called RideScout, an app that monitors traffic conditions.

“Here, I’m not just talking about wrecks, wrecks, wrecks all the time,” Brennes told Austin360. “I get to focus on solutions.”

“KEYE always felt like home,” she added. “Everyone there is great, but life changes.”


Brennes has already started working at RideScout as director of interactive content.

KEYE has yet to name her replacement.
