KXAN ex­pand­ing its noon news, ‘Stu­dio 512’

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

Austin NBC af­fil­i­ate KXAN is shak­ing up its day­time lineup start­ing next week.

“Stu­dio 512,” the sta­tion’s life­style show, will move to 11 a.m. and ex­pand from 30 min­utes to an hour. It cur­rently airs at 12:30 p.m.

Joe Bar­low, en­ter­tain­ment re­porter for The CW Austin, will join “Stu­dio 512” host Amanda Tatom on the ex­panded pro­gram, “adding a fun new per­spec­tive and lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment re­ports to the show’s fo­cus on lo­cal food, style, fit­ness and fam­ily.”

With “Stu­dio 512” mov­ing to an ear­lier time slot, KXAN’s noon news­cast will ex­pand to a full hour, run­ning from noon to 1 p.m.

The news­cast was ini­tially an hour long when it first launched, but was trimmed back when “Stu­dio 512” de­buted in 2014.

Kate Wei­daw an­chors KXAN’s noon news­cast.
