KXAN Ups Shannon Wolfson to Evening Anchor

wolfson_croppedKXAN has promoted investigative reporter Shannon Wolfson to evening anchor for the Austin NBC affiliate.

Beginning December 2, Wolfson will join Robert Hadlock, chief weathercaster Jim Spencer and sports director Roger Wallace for the KXAN 5, 6 and 10:00 p.m. newscasts and the 9:00 pm. news on CW affiliate KNVA.

“I’ve been so honored and humbled to be part of this team of incredible journalists at KXAN for the last seven years,” Wolfson said in a statement. “I’m beyond excited about this new opportunity and look forward to continuing my investigative reporting, as well.”

Wolfson takes over for Leslie Rhode who announced she was leaving last month. She started at KXAN in 2006 as a reporter and was named named main anchor of the CW news at 9:00 p.m. in 2009. She came back to the station as an investigative reporter in June after a three month hiatus.
