Will Jensen named lead co-anchor of KTXS News
ABILENE, Texas -- A familiar face is moving from weekends to weekdays.
Will Jensen has been named lead co-anchor of KTXS News. He joins Veronica Soto weeknights on KTXS News at 5, 6 and 10.
Jensen began his broadcasting career at KTXS in the late 1990s before leaving to work in Austin.
He returned in March 2015 and has served as both reporter and weekend anchor.
“We’re excited to have Will join our weekday team,” KTXS News Director Jamie Burch said. “Will is one of the top reporters in our market, and that experience will only benefit our news product.”
Jensen replaces George Levesque who left in December to move to his dream job at the historic Paramount Theatre.
“I appreciate the encouraging words I’ve received from colleagues and viewers during this transition," Jensen said. "I look forward to helping the great team at KTXS as we continue our efforts to produce the best possible newscasts for our audience.”
Jensen will continue to report regularly to keep him out in the community and connected to the stories he reports.
“Will adds to the credibility of our already established Getting the Facts Right brand and builds on the incredible product our very talented team has worked so hard to develop,” KTXS General Manager David Caldwell said.
