KEYE Set to Debut ‘Fun and Spunky’ Morning Show

KEYE is set to debut a new morning show on Friday that the CBS-affiliate promises will be “different than anything else in the mornings on TV in Austin.”

We Are Austin Mornings,” airing from 5-7 a.m., will be hosted by Erika Gonzalez, a multilingual reporter who has anchored newscasts for KEYE’s Telemundo subchannel, with meteorologist Kelly Slifka giving regular weather updates (promo video with Gonzalez and Slifka above).

“We’ve got all the need-to-know information, but we’re also fun and spunky, with a whole lot of viewer interaction,” Gonzalez told the American-Statesman recently. “This show is its own animal.”

For KEYE, the new show is a return to form. In 2009, the station scrapped its morning newscast and began airing a simulcast of a local radio show instead.
