“We Are Austin” will get a pair of new hosts next week.

Jordan Steele and Taylor Ellison are set to take over KEYE’s 9 a.m. lifestyle show starting Monday, the station said.

They’ll take the place of current hosts Chris Saldaña and Allison Miller, who begin co-anchoring the CBS affiliate’s revamped morning newscast that same day.

Steele will also be a part of the new “KEYE-TV Morning News,” delivering weather forecasts. He most recently served as the station’s weekend meteorologist, a spot he’s held since 2012.

Ellison joined KEYE in December, and has been a regular “We Are Austin” contributor. Before that, she filed entertainment reports for local CW affiliate KNVA.

“The addition of Taylor and Jordan to ‘We Are Austin’ brings another group of talented hosts to our morning block,” said KEYE vice president and general manager Amy Villarreal. “The combination of their dynamic personalities along with their passion and love for Austin will make for a great show.”
