Daranesha Herron is being promoted to weekend evening anchor at KVUE Austin.

"I've been working hard on my craft and myself personally. I didn't know when this opportunity would come but I knew when it did, I would be ready."

She takes over the anchor chair from anchor Jenni Lee who was promoted to KVUE Midday weekday newscast in October 2021.

Before returning to Texas, Herron was a weekday morning anchor/reporter for WTVA 9 - WLOV Tupelo, Mississippi.
