AUSTIN (KXAN) — After 11 years at KXAN, Shannon Wolfson is signing off for the last time on Monday evening.

Shannon started at KXAN in 2006 as reporter and 9 p.m. anchor, then moved to full-time investigative reporter, and then became main evening anchor in 2013. She has received an array of accolades for her work, including a 2016 regional Emmy recognizing her as the state’s top anchor, as well as winning “Best Anchor” in 2016 by the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters Association.

Shannon plans to focus more time on family, traveling and pursuing other professional aspirations.

The seat next to Robert Hadlock will be filled by Sydney Benter, who joins KXAN from the CBS affiliate in Cincinnati, Ohio where she served as a reporter and weeknight news anchor.
