Local CW affiliate KNVA is kicking its entertainment coverage up a notch.
The station said Monday it has tapped Joe Barlow to serve as its new entertainment reporter. Look for his stories to air three days a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – during KNVA’s 9 p.m. newscast.
Barlow is already familiar to the station’s viewers, having served as a correspondent on the recently canceled “ATX Uncensored(ish)” news satire show.
“I’m truly excited to get started as The CW Austin’s entertainment reporter,” he said. “I look forward to infusing humor into my interviews with chefs, actors, musicians and honestly whoever will talk to me.”
Before arriving in Austin, Barlow spent four years as a reporter at a TV station in Champaign, Ill.
