Univision 62 is expanding its news team with the addition of a new evening co-anchor.
Hugo Chavez Montes is set to join Regina Rodriguez on KAKW’s 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. weeknight newscasts, the station said this week.
Chavez arrives in Austin after a stint with Grupo Televisa, where he has served as an anchor and reporter for morning and evening newscasts for the past eight years. Since 2010, he’s also been news director for MVS Radio Monterrey.
“Hugo has an amazing depth of experience on an international level, and I’m pleased to welcome him to our news team,” said Luis Patino, vice president and general manager for Univision Television Group. “He will bring a fresh perspective to our news program and I believe that his broadcast style will resonate with viewers in Austin.”
