Brian Collister leaving KXAN Austin

Former KTRK abc13 investigative reporter Brian Collister told the Austin American-Statesman's Gary Dinges that he is leaving his gig at KXAN 36.

“Like any relationship, sometimes the parties decide they need to go in a new direction – and that’s what we decided to do,” he said. “Whether it’s here in Austin, elsewhere in Texas or beyond, I’m going to continue to fight for the public’s right to know.”

The 20 year investigator has earned even more awards while in Austin most notably the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.

Collister left KTRK for Austin in 2014.

He has also worked at WOAI San Antonio and KTBC FOX 7 Austin.

Collister, who grew up in The Woodlands, graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in broadcast journalism.
