Kerr added, "I am thrilled to be coming back to FOX 7 and joining the “Good Day” team with Katherine, Keri and Zack. I've traded my sports hat and enthusiastically move over to the news side and I couldn't be more excited about re-establishing myself with FOX 7 and the Austin area community. As I began my career here, I know firsthand the history of KTBC and the quality news programming this station delivers.”
