KEYE Says Goodbye to Longtime Employee

williams keyeIt’s not often one of the people working behind the scenes gets a write up when they leave a station.

Austin American-Statesman media writer Gary Dinges reports Sousa Williams is leaving Austin CBS affiliate KEYE after 19 years.

“Over the years she’s held a variety of roles, including 10 p.m. producer, executive producer, news operations manager and, most recently, new media manager overseeing the station’s website and social media accounts, among other things,” writes Dinges.

“There are so many unsung, hardworking journalists behind the scenes in a TV newsroom,” KEYE anchor Judy Maggio (pictured left) wrote on her facebook page. “I’ve worked side by side with Sousa Williams at 2 TV stations and she’s one of the best. We will miss you, Sousa. Happy Trails and enjoy your new adventure.”

Williams is heading to Connecticut to be with her girlfriend. Today is her last day.

KXAN Debuts Morning Newscast on KNVA

This morning, KXAN, the LIN Media owned Austin NBC affiliate, launched a morning show airing on the Austin CW affiliate KNVA.

While KXAN’s morning news currently goes from 4:30 a.m. until 7:00 a.m., the newscast on KNVA runs from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. and is anchored by the KXAN morning news team of Brian Sanders, Sally Hernandez, traffic reporter Amanda Dugan and meteorologist Mark Monstrola.

“We genuinely like each other,” Hernandez told the Austin American-Statesmans Gary Dinges. “It’s going to be nice to have this extra time together.”

“Our commitment to our audience is growing,” KXAN news director Chad Cross told TVSpy. “We know the busiest time of the morning for many of our viewers is 7:00 to 9:00.  It only makes sense we continue to provide valuable, local coverage of what’s happening each morning that could affect the start of your day.”
