Shannon Murray Joining KVUE From KOSA

Shannon Murray is joining KVUE in Austin as a reporter and fill-in anchor, Austin media blogger Bill Church reports.

Murray has spent two years working at KOSA, the CBS affiliate in Midland-Odessa, Texas. She has also worked as a local radio correspondent.

“I lived in Austin for four years and most of my friends are there, so it was always my goal to get back there,” Murray told Church. “I’ve had a great experience here in Midland-Odessa and I’m sad to leave everybody here, but I could see myself building a life in Austin. I love the town.”

Morgan Chesky Leaving Austin For Oklahoma City

Cheskey will join ABC affiliate KOCO as the weekend anchor. He will anchor five shows a weekend — three on Saturday and two on Sunday — and report for the evening newscast during the week.

“It’s a very competitive market and a lot more people watch news there than in Austin,” Chesky said. “I feel confident my time at KVUE has given me the tools to do well and earn their trust in Oklahoma City.”

Culture Map reports Chesky will be replaced by Shannon Murray.

WFTV’s Vanessa Welch and WESH’s Jason Brewer Are Having a Baby

WFTV anchor Vanessa Welch and her husband, WESH meteorologist Jason Brewer, are having a baby boy.

Welch and Brewer moved to Orlando in 2007, when she joined the ABC affiliate and he joined the NBC affiliate. “We’ve never felt more at home,” Brewer told the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s been a real adventure with both of us in the same business. [WFTV] has been good to her, and WESH has been good to me. It has become home. We weren’t getting any younger. It was now or never.”

Welch and Brewer met in 2000 at KOSA, the CBS affiliate in Odessa, TX. They have been married for seven years. The baby, their first child, is due November 24.
