‘We Are Austin’ hosts Trevor Scott and Taylor Ellison


CBS Austin has selected a new co-host for “We Are Austin,” its weekday lifestyle show.

Trevor Scott is set to slide into the chair recently vacated by Jordan Steele. His first day on air will be April 17.

“Trevor has called Austin home for four years now, but spent three years before that splitting his time between Oklahoma City and Austin, so he is no stranger to Central Texas,” CBS Austin vice president and general manager Amy Villarreal said. “His love for food, the Austin volunteer community and the creative side of life will complement the commitment to Austin and the surrounding areas that ‘We Are Austin’ focuses on.”

Scott has 18 years in the TV business, most recently working as a promotions producer at CBS Austin.

“I love this city and I’m so excited to explore and share the local businesses, stories and products that make Central Texas so great,” Scott said.

“We Are Austin” airs weekdays at 9 a.m., following “CBS This Morning.”
