“Studio 512,” KXAN’s new lifestyle program, will debut next week.

The show will air weekdays at 12:30 p.m. beginning Aug. 4.

“Hosting this show puts me right in the middle of all the fun,” host Amanda Tatom said. “Discovering new things in our area and sharing them with our viewers is what ‘Studio 512’ is all about.”

Tatom arrives in Austin after a stint at a Lubbock TV station.

KXAN’s noon newscast will shrink from an hour to 30 minutes to make way for “Studio 512.”

Another local TV station, KEYE, launched its own lifestyle show in late June. “We Are Austin,” hosted by Chris Saldana and Allison Miller, airs weekdays at 9 a.m. on Austin’s CBS affiliate.
