Fox4 continues to replenish its news staff, this time with the hiring of Peter Daut from KFOX-TV in El Paso.
Daut, who joined the station in July, 2006, has been a weekend anchor and investigative reporter for Sun City's Fox affiliate. The University of Southern California graduate broke into the news business as a news writer and field producer for KABC-TV in Los Angeles. His KFOX Web site bio says he kept that job for two years "while balancing a full load of classes."
Daut's also a former Eagle Scout and "competitive swimmer" who minored in Spanish at USC, where he graduated Cum Laude with a double major in broadcast journalism and political science.
Earlier this year, Daut and KFOX colleague George Cervantes won second place honors from the Texas Associated Press for an investigative report titled "Scandal in Socorro." He's scheduled to start at Fox4 in December.
