New Reporter Hire in Dallas

KDFW in Dallas has hired a new Reporter for the station's morning newscast.

The station announced that Shannon Murray will join the station's Good Day show as a weekday general assignment reporter, beginning Jan. 24.

It’s a homecoming for Murray, whose most recent gig was as a reporter/fill-in anchor at Austin’s KVUE.

“I grew up in Dallas, so I can't wait to cover the news in my hometown,” Murray says in a release. “I'm honored to be part of the top-rated station and to work alongside the experienced staff at KDFW.”

Murray’s broadcasting background is pure Texas: She started as an intern at Austin’s KXAN, then worked as an anchor/reporter at Midland’s KOSA. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism.
