Jason Hill Back on TV in Austin
Jason Hill, former morning anchor on KVUE TV (ABC), is landing on his feet, at least for the moment, at KXAN TV (NBC). According to Eric Lassberg, KXAN’s president and general manager, the job is, “Short term, sporadic, freelance only.” It is not a permanent hire at this time.
First word of the Hill’s return came from anchor Robert Hadlock on Facebook, “KXAN welcomes Jason Hill. Watch him Tuesday on Austin News Today beginning at 5AM.” Hill will be appearing as a reporter, not as an anchor. He was working on a story for air tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, during the day, according to sources.
Hill and Michael Fabac were friends when both were in Detroit. Hill apparently is not replacing any current KXAN TV staff member.
