Jeff Vaughn, who left KSHB-TV in Novemer 2009 to become the evening news anchor at KENS 5-TV in San Antonio, is out at the Belo-owned station, according to his Facebook post.
“As of today, I no longer work for KENS5,” Vaughn posted. “Although it was an enjoyable experience at KENS-TV, I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life. Most of all I will miss delivering the news to the wonderful people of San Antonio, who have embraced and supported my family since we arrived in 2010.”
Vaughn, a Kansas State graduate, had a major challenge in January 2010 at KENS trying to succeed Chris Marrou, a veteran news anchor who was retiring from the station after 36 years on the air.
Vaughn had been morning anchor of NBC Action News Today and NBC Action News Midday from January 2007 to December 2009. Prior to his work in Kansas City, he was a weekend morning anchor and general assignment reporter at WDIV-TV, the NBC affiliate in Detroit. Vaughn has Texas roots as an anchor and reporter at KCBD-TV in Lubbock and as a reporter at KMID-TV in Midland.
