Walt Maciborski Joins KEYE From WXIN

Walt Maciborski is joining Austin CBS affiliate KEYE as evening co-anchor, the Austin American-Statesman reports.

It is a return to Austin for Maciborski, who worked at ABC affiliate KVUE from 1994-2000. He will co-anchor the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts alongside Judy Maggio, who he worked with at KVUE, beginning June 24.

“KEYE is on the move in a city that is booming,” Maciborski told the American-Statesman. “It’s a great station with a great team … and I get to sit next to my good friend Judy Maggio again. I’m proud to be a part of what’s happening there.”

Maciborski comes from WXIN in Indianapolis. He replaces Ron Olivera, who left KEYE earlier this year after his contract was not renewed.

Sadie the Donkey Gets Loose Outside WXIN

A donkey named Sadie was reunited with her owner Thursday after getting loose outside WXIN, the Fox affiliate in Indianapolis.

The station reported on Sadie during the 4 p.m. newscast, showing video of the donkey running around outside WXIN’s headquarters in the snow. Animal Control was called, but three officers who responded were not able to corral Sadie, who escaped into some nearby fields.

“I even sacrificed my apple to help lure Sadie in,” Walt Maciborski said in his report. “She wasn’t going for it.”

Animal Control eventually gave up the chase. But later in the night, a big red trailer — with Sadie inside — pulled into the WXIN parking lot. Volunteers from the Hearts and Hoofs Equine Ministry drove from nearby Monrovia to rescue Sadie after seeing WXIN’s early afternoon report.

Maciborski will join WXIN, the Fox-affiliate in Indianapolis, in September. He wrote on Twitter he is “excited about [the] new opportunity.”

“Walt is a tremendous person,” Salinas told Bark. “He’s a true professional, and this is an amazing opportunity for him. He will be greatly missed here at CW33.”
