Meteorologist Shawn Rutherford Out At KXAN

Meteorologist Shawn Rutherford has been fired from Austin NBC-affiliate KXAN after 13 years with the station, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Rutherford, who was the morning and midday meteorologist, was last on the air Friday. His bio was reportedly removed from the station’s website hours after the newscast finished.

The abrupt departure is the latest in a string of exits from KXAN, including investigative reporter Nanci Wilson, meteorologist Rhonda Lee and weekend morning anchor Catenya McHenry, who told viewers on Facebook her contract had been terminated.

KXAN news director Michael Fabac did not respond to TVSpy’s request for comment.

Reporter-Anchor Catenya McHenry Out at KXAN

After just a year at KXAN, Catenya McHenry has been let go by the Austin NBC-affiliate.

McHenry announced the news on her Facebook page, according to Austin media blogger Jim McNabb. “My contract was terminated last week,” she wrote. “It’s so unfortunate, especially at this time of the year, but I thank you all my friends and fans for making our show #1 this year.”

McHenry, who has done two stints with KXAN, joined the station in 2010 as a weekend morning anchor and reporter. She was also a KXAN reporter from 1995-98.

KXAN news director Michael Fabac did not immediately return TVSpy’s request for comment.
