WXIX Anchor Confirms Move to Dallas

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WXIX morning anchor Kara Sewell is heading to Dallas as WFAA‘s newest morning anchor. Sewell is from Texas.

She confirmed the news in a Facebook Live post. She says when she removed the station call letters from her station Facebook page viewers started asking questions about her status at the station.

“Yes I’m leaving Fox 19. We are leaving on fabulous terms. It’s a big opportunity, huge opportunity but still doesn’t mean it’s not hard.”


Sewell was hired by the Raycom station in Cincinnati three years ago as morning anchor.

Sewell started her career at KOSA-TV in Midland-Odessa, in West Texas. She then moved to KWCH-TV in Wichita, Kansas, before arriving in Ohio in 2014.

She says she will start the Tegna owned ABC affiliate, in January.
