KTBC and Jenni Lee, the station’s weekend news anchor, have parted ways.
A University of Texas grad, Lee joined Fox 7 in 2001, after spending time at the CBS affiliate in Bryan/College Station.
"I am extremely grateful for my 12 years at Fox," Lee said this afternoon. "After all, I met my husband on a story! I am leaving with great memories and friends. Thanks to those who allowed me into their homes to tell them about all sorts of crazy things. I am staying in Austin and will probably run into you on the streets!"
Reporters Lauren Petrowski and Daniel Armbruster will be filling in until a new weekend anchor is hired, a station spokeswoman said.
Lee is the latest in a string of high-profile employees to leave the station in recent months, including morning anchors Katherine Kisiel and Greg Kerr and longtime sports director Dave Cody.
