KXAN Investigative Reporter Is Looking for New Opportunities

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KXAN has lost its lead investigative reporter, Brian Collister.

According to the American-Statesman, Collister is looking for his next opportunity after four years with the NBC affiliate.

“Like any relationship, sometimes the parties decide they need to go in a new direction—and that’s what we decided to do,” he told the newspaper.


Before Austin, Texas, he spent time as an investigative reporter at KTRK in Houston and WOAI in San Antonio.

Collister is the recipient of the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award and other honors for coverage of racial profiling by Texas law enforcement officers.
