In need of a smile?

Well, here you go, courtesy of CBS Austin morning anchor Allison Miller.

At a recent Round Rock Express game, Miller had the honor of the throwing out the first pitch. That’s where this sweet tale starts, not stops.

After the – shall we say, creative – pitch, Miller had her 2-year-old daughter, Audrey, hand the ball off to her husband, Thomas.

This is where things really start to get good. Miller prompts her hubby to read the ball. On it he spots, “Little Slugger, coming December 2017.”

“What?” Thomas asks. “Are you serious?”

Yep, she’s serious. Baby No. 2 is on the way.

“Thomas and I are super excited for Audrey to be a big sister,” Miller said. “We’re planning on finding out if it’s a boy or girl when he/she arrives in late November or early December.”

Big congrats to the entire family!

Catch Miller, co-anchor Chris Saldaña, traffic anchor Chrisdyann Uribe and meteorologist Nicole Hartford weekdays from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. on CBS Austin, followed by “CBS This Morning.”


KEYE debuts new morning anchor lineup on Feb. 16

keyeamnewsSome familiar faces will take on new roles later this month when KEYE revamps its morning newscast.

Chris Saldaña and Allison Miller will take over as anchors of “KEYE-TV Morning News” starting Feb. 16, the station said. The two currently co-host “We Are Austin,” KEYE’s 9 a.m. lifestyle program.

Miller also serves as the CBS affiliate’s morning meteorologist, but with her move to the anchor desk weekend meteorologist Jordan Steele will be taking over those duties.

Ericka Miller, the station’s current morning co-anchor, will remain on that broadcast, but take on a new role as the “Happening Now” anchor, handling breaking news and monitoring developing stories.

Hunter Ellis, the station’s other morning anchor, departed in December to focus on making documentaries. Reporter Alex Boyer had been filling in.

Ashley Roberts will continue to serve as traffic anchor while the station looks for a permanent replacement for Erica Brennes, who left earlier this month to take a job with tech startup RideScout.

When “KEYE-TV Morning News” relaunches, the station said it hopes to inject more personality into the broadcast, along with a stronger emphasis on social media.

“We’ll give our viewers what they need in the morning – news, traffic, weather – while adding bursts of what they want – more personality and opportunities to allow viewers to welcome us into their homes,” news director Rob Cartwright said.
