Walt Gray announced yesterday he will join Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV as weekend morning anchor.
“Walt is one of Sacramento’s best known and most respected news anchors,” KXTV news director Jerome Parra said in a statement. “He’s done it all. He is a trusted voice and an accomplished storyteller. He adds even greater depth to News10’s accomplished team of anchors and reporters.”
Gray left the rival NBC affiliate KCRA last year to host his own show on local radio station 96.9 “The Eagle.” He was one of a number of people laid off from “The Eagle” in July.
Gray announced the news of his return to TV on KXTV’s Sunday morning news live after pitching his charity motorcycle ride. You can watch the video after the jump.
Here’s Gray announcing the news on KXTV:
Gray’s wife, KXTV’s chief meteorologist Monica Woods, has worked at the station since 2001. Gray had worked at KCRA for 25 years as a sports anchor and later a news anchor.
His first day on-air for KXTV will be Saturday, September 7.
