Jennifer Sanders joins KXAN Austin

NewsChannel 9 WSYR Syracuse, NY morning anchor Jennifer Sanders returns to Texas at KXAN Austin

Morning anchor Jennifer Sanders is leaving NewsChannel 9 WSYR Syracuse, NY after nine years and returning to Texas at Nexstar sister-station KXAN Austin.

WSYR reports her last day in Central New York will be May 29th, so I would guess she would we on Austin's channel 36 sometime in June.

No word on the award winning TV journalist's job position at KXAN. UPDATE: She is the weekend anchor.

The station even had a car farewell parade (video embedded below) for Sanders since there could be no official party thanks to COVID-19.

Before WSYR, Sanders was a multi-media journalist (MMJ) for KXII Sherman. She started her TV career as a CW33 KDAF Dallas writer/web producer. According to her bio, she started her journalism career in Seguin where she worked for a newspaper and radio station.

Sanders is a Texas Lutheran University graduate with a University of North Texas master’s degree in journalism.
