James Doughty joins KAVU Victoria, Texas

Former KENS 5 San Antonio reporter James Doughty joins KAVU Victoria, Texas as morning anchor

Former KENS 5 San Antonio reporter James Doughty (aka James Muñoz) is now the morning anchor at KAVU in Victoria, Texas.

He even has a memorable start date at the station too.

Doughty started working July 21st, which just so happens to be the station's 35th birthday.

It would have been cool if the station rolled out a giant cake into the newsroom for him to jump out of as an introduction to the staff.

Scratch that...that might only be cool to me.

"Rockport is in our coverage area," Doughty told mikemcguff.com. "My 3rd great grandfather, James Murray Doughty was one of the founding fathers of Rockport. He was also first sheriff of Refugio County another area KAVU covers. I will be using my birth name James Doughty."

Speaking of family, Doughty wrote a book called Some Monument To Last about finding his family in unique circumstances after interviewing Walter Cronkite.

Doughty previously worked as the news director for NewsWest 9 KWES Midland/Odessa.
