KAVU Victoria has new leadership

Daniel Aguilar takes over as Newscenter 25 KAVU Victoria GM, James Munoz as news director

Some big changes at Newscenter 25 KAVU Victoria with a newly named general manager and news director.

Daniel R. Aguilar has confirmed to that he is the new KAVU GM.

“I’m excited to be a part of a great company, Morgan Murphy Media and am eager to become a part of a treasured community like Victoria and its surrounding communities," Aguilar told "The Victoria Television Group will expand our reach within the communities we serve daily.”

He takes over for Jeff Pryor who retired earlier this year after more than 20 years of service.

Former KRIS Corpus Christi general manager Greg McAlister has been serving as interim GM until the permanent hire was made.

Aguilar comes from TENGA station Fox West Texas KIDY - KXVA San Angelo where he served as president and general manager for nearly three years.

He worked for KIII Corpus Christi for nearly 8 years before that.

KAVU morning anchor James Munoz can now take the interim part of his news director title off because he officially has the job. Munoz added interim news director duties to his job back in February.

"I am honored to take on this new role with Morgan Murphy Media," Munoz told "I look forward to serving our team of bright journalists and expanding KAVU's presence in the Crossroads and online. I enjoyed working alongside interim General Manager Greg McAlister and I am excited to have our new General Manager Danny Aguilar on board."

Munoz replaces Roxann Fisher who left earlier this year.

Since 1998, Muñoz has had a very Texas television news focused career having worked at KVII Amarillo, KIII Corpus Christi, KTRE Lufkin, KSAN San Angelo, KENS San Antonio and KWES Midland.
