"After four years of full time reporting I will soon be moving to full time anchor for the @kxan_news weekend evening shows! 

As a kid I remember watching KXAN with my parents. @jimspencerkxan, Robert Hadlock and Roger Wallace were always welcomed into our home to deliver the news, weather and sports and I hope to continue that tradition with y’all. 

This 4th generation Austinite can’t wait to deliver the news to all my family and friends, the original Austinites and those who have just moved here! I’m also pumped about working with @nick_bannin_meteorologist!" 

Remadna joined KXAN as a morning reporter /MMJ in June 2020 from WKRN News 2 Nashville, Tennessee.

The University of Mississippi grad previously worked as a reporter for KHON 2 Honolulu, Hawaii and got his TV news biz start as a weekend sports anchor/news reporter at KOTA Rapid City, South Dakota.
