Reporter Tania Ortega, a regular presence on Fox 7’s morning newscasts for almost five years now, is taking over as anchor of the weekend editions of “Good Day Austin.”
Ortega replaces Ann Wyatt Little, who recently left to work as an anchor/reporter at sister Fox station WJZY in Charlotte, N.C.
“Tania has covered everything from hurricanes and tornadoes to features for ‘Good Day Austin,’ ” Fox 7 vice president and news director Pam Vaught said. “Because she is tuned in to the city of Austin and the interests of its people, Tania is the ideal person to take over this anchor position.”
Ortega arrived in Austin after holding a variety of positions at two separate TV stations in Waco. She’s a graduate of San Diego State University.
“After four and a half years of reporting on location for ‘Good Day Austin,’ I’m excited to provide viewers with the news of the day and the human interest stories they love, all from the anchor desk,” Ortega said.
The weekend edition of “Good Day Austin” airs from 6 to 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
