TEGNA’s Austin Property Selects A New ND


“I am looking forward to embracing Austin’s diverse culture, knowing the people who call it home, and, more importantly, working with the team to tell the stories that are important to the community.”

That’s how this former Assistant News Director of NBC Connecticut, WVIT-30, feels about joining TEGNA‘s ABC affiliate serving the capital of the Lone Star State.

Travis Sattiewhite is the new News Director at KVUE-TV in Austin.

Sattiewhite is a native of Houston and worked for several local news stations in Texas. He’s also worked at CNN in Atlanta.

“Travis is a people-first leader who is passionate about telling stories that help diverse communities thrive,” said KVUE President/General Manager Kristie Gonzales. “His local and national news experience plus his drive to innovate make him the perfect fit to lead a newsroom in one of the fastest growing markets in the country. We’re excited to welcome him to the KVUE family.”
