Longtime KVUE Morning Anchor Gives Behind-the-Scenes Look at Her A.M. Routine

Longtime KVUE morning anchor Melissa Gale, who is leaving the Austin ABC-affiliate after more than a decade, recently posted a video on YouTube that gives a behind-the-scenes look at her morning routine, from using a flashlight to navigate her house so that she won’t wake her husband and kids to spraying on an even coat of makeup before she goes on-air.

The video, shot by Gale using her phone, also features anecdotes from her years of driving to work at 3:30 in the morning, including the time she saw a ghost (video above).

Morning Anchor Melissa Gale Leaving KVUE

Melissa Gale, the longtime morning anchor at KVUE in Austin, says she will resign next month.

“I announced today at the station that after many great years at KVUE, reporting to the wonderful people of Austin on things that I hope have been very important to them, I’ve decided to take some much needed time off, and explore some other opportunities,” Gale wrote.

Gale, who also anchors the noon newscast, has been morning anchor at the ABC-affiliate for more than 10 years. Her last day will be sometime in mid-June, news director Frank Volpicella tells CultureMap Austin.

KVUE Names Bryan Mays Morning Co-Anchor

Austin’s KVUE has announced a replacement for Olga Campos, who left the station in July after 16 years: weekend sports anchor Bryan Mays.

“When Bryan filled in on the ‘Daybreak’ anchor desk, he created a spark that was felt not only on the air, but behind the scenes as well, working closely with the producers to improve the quality of the editorial aspect of the newscast,” KVUE news director Frank Volpicella said in a statement.

Mays, who has been at KVUE since 2004, will join Melissa Gale as co-anchor of the morning and mid-day newscasts on the ABC-affiliate. Sports reporter Matt Mitchell will take over Mays’ spot as weekend sports anchor; the station is currently searching for a replacement for Mitchell.
