Plan II Alumna, Hema Mullur Returns to Austin as News Anchor on Local CBS Affiliate KEYE
Posted: May 13, 2014
Plan II alumna, Hema Mullur, returns to Austin via Austin airways on KEYE news this June 16. She will join Walt Maciborski, Chikage Windler, and Bob Ballou as anchor of the KEYE News 5pm, 6pm, and 10pm weekday newscasts.
Hema Mullur comes to KEYE from KDVR in Denver where she anchored the 10 p.m. Fox news as well as the 7 p.m. on CW for the past three years.
Hema is a native Texan and a proud UT Longhorn! She grew up in the Dallas suburb of Plano and is a graduate of the Plan II Honors Program and the School of Journalism at UT Austin.
She started her television career at KWES-TV in Midland as a morning anchor/reporter. In 2008, she headed to west Texas anchoring the evening newscasts at KFOX-TV in El Paso.
Hema says it is a dream come true to return to Austin and she is honored to follow in the footsteps of Judy Maggio:
"I am so excited to return to Texas and call KEYE and Austin home. A few years away from Texas were all I needed to know that this state really is home - from the people, to the culture, and the amazing food! It didn't take long for the folks at KEYE to convince me that they have the kind of news operation that I want to be a part of. I'm looking forward to bringing Austin viewers stories that help keep them safe and informed. Judy Maggio is certainly not an easy person to replace, and I hope to bring the same warmth and credibility that she has brought to Austin throughout her amazing career." - Hema Mullur
Hema's credibility has been earned in the field. She is a Lone Star EMMY Award winning reporting reporter who excels at covering major breaking news and loves covering a great political race. She will join Walt Maciborski in producing in-depth reports that dive into the issues that impact central Texas.
