(Brian) New guy at CBS11

D-FW's CBS11 is hitting San Antonio hard lately. Its second new hire from the Alamo City in as many days is -- Brian New.

The Denver native has been an investigative reporter at KENS-TV since 2007, according to his station bio. KENS, a CBS affiliate, is owned by Dallas-based Belo Corp., also the parent company of CBS11's arch rival, WFAA8.

New is scheduled to start at CBS11 on New Year's Eve, filling the nightside spot vacated by Jay Gormley when he left the station in mid-September to become director of communications for the Dallas region of Time Warner cable. But New also will be a contributor to CBS11's investigative unit, which was further bolstered with Monday's hiring of gumshoe Mireya Villarreal-Gideon from San Antonio's WOAI-TV. KENS says that New has won six regional Emmys for various investigations.

After graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in broadcast journalism, New worked at KTWO-TV in Cheyenne, Wyoming, KVII-TV in Amarillo and WOWT-TV in Omaha, Nebraska before joining KENS.

Here's video of a New(s) "exclusive" for KENS:
