Look for a new locally produced show to pop up next month on CBS Austin.

“Austin After Hours” with host Taylor Ellison will debut Aug. 5 at 10:35 p.m., featuring extended interviews with the people and places who help make Austin such a one-of-a-kind place to live.

The series will air the first Saturday of each month following CBS Austin’s 10 p.m. news.

“The only thing I love more than living in Austin is getting to share the joy of this city with others,” said Ellison, who also co-hosts the station’s weekday lifestyle show, “We Are Austin.” “I look forward to sharing these uniquely Austin stories in hopes that they my uplift and inspire audiences everywhere.”

The first installment includes interviews with “Everybody Loves Raymond” executive producer Phil Rosenthal, ceramic artist Keith Kreeger and soul-pop guitarist Jackie Venson.

“‘Austin After Hours’ gives us the opportunity to highlight Austin in a format that is as unique as our city,” said CBS Austin vice president and general manager Amy Villarreal.

“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.”
