Mat Garcia Joins KENS as Morning Anchor

KENS has hired Mat Garcia to replace longtime morning anchor Fred Lozano, who is set to retire after more than three decades on San Antonio TV.

“We conducted a nationwide search and we are pleased to bring a journalist of Mat’s caliber to join Sarah Forgany, Natalie Tejeda and Paul Mireles,” KENS president and general manager Bob McGann said, referring to the CBS-affiliate’s current morning roster.

A Texas native, Garcia comes to KENS from KOCO in Oklahoma City, where he spent three years as a morning anchor before being bumped off the show in April.

“I have always dreamed of coming back to Texas,” Garcia said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited about coming to San Antonio and getting to work for the premier station in South Texas.”
