Greg Kerr Joins KTBC as Morning Anchor

Greg Kerr will be KTBC‘s morning anchor beginning July 16, the Austin Fox O&O announced today.

Kerr joins KTBC from corporate cousin Fox Sports Southwest, where is a Dallas-based freelance anchor and reporter. Prior to that, he served as sports director and news anchor for WFMY in Greensboro for nine years. Kerr began his career at KTBC more than 20 years ago.

“I’ve traded my sports hat and enthusiastically move over to the news side and I couldn’t be more excited about re-establishing myself with FOX 7 and the Austin area community,” Kerr said in a statement.

He replaces Joe Bickett, who left the station last month to move to Nevada with his family. He joins Katherine Kiseil, Keri Bellacosa and Zack Shields on the morning newscast.
