Three Years After Leaving KABB, Cynthia Lee Rejoins Station as Weekend Anchor

KABB has re-hired Cynthia Lee as a reporter and weekend anchor, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

Lee spent seven years anchoring the evening newscasts for the San Antonio Fox-affiliate. She left in 2009 and has spent the past three years producing segments on Fox Sports Southwest.

“KABB was very good to me the first time around,” Lee said. “I believe in the people and the product. It was a no brainer to go back and I can’t believe I even get my old desk.”

Lee will anchor the weekend evening newscasts with Ted Garcia when she rejoins the station on April 9. She replaces Mileka Lincoln, who joined Austin’s KEYE this week.

Mileka Lincoln, Hunter Ellis Replace Fred Cantu on KEYE Morning Newscast

With the arrival of anchor Mileka Lincoln, Austin’s KEYE is shaking up the morning newscast.

Lincoln was hired from KABB in San Antonio to be the morning anchor. She is paired with Hunter Ellis, who was promoted to the anchor desk from his previous job as a reporter for the KEYE 4 p.m. newscast.

Popular Austin anchor Fred Cantu, who has been filling in as the morning anchor since last year, will become a feature reporter for KEYE, according to the Austin American-Statesman. He will revive his weekly “Gadget Guy” reports that focus on technology trends. Read more

Mileka Lincoln Joining KEYE From KABB

Mileka Lincoln is joining KEYE as morning anchor. She starts at the Austin CBS-affiliate next Monday.

“It’s my dream job — so I can’t wait!” Lincoln told TVSpy via email. “KEYE’s re-launching a new morning show (set to hopefully debut at the beginning of April) so this is a very exciting transition.”

Lincoln is currently a weekend anchor and reporter at KABB, the Fox-affiliate in San Antonio. Her last day at the station is Friday.

KEYE’s morning newscast has been anchored by Fred Cantu since October. The San Antonio Express-News reports Lincoln will “c0-anchor” the morning newscast, although it is not immediately clear who her co-anchor will be. KEYE did not return TVSpy’s request for comment.
