Avery is an investigative reporter, covering the courts and justice system.
This proud Longhorn is thrilled to be back in Austin, returning to the KXAN newsroom where it all began. While at the University of Texas, Avery interned with the Investigative Team at KXAN.
She then worked as a multimedia journalist at KAMC in Lubbock, TX, before working her way up to morning and midday anchor on Good Morning Lubbock. While in West Texas, Avery covered everything from the shooting on the Texas Tech University campus where an officer was killed, to a deadly gas explosion in a residential neighborhood and the resulting $20 million lawsuit. She also became the “self-appointed” city government reporter, following citizen outrage over land annexation and high utility bills.
Avery is honored to work with KXAN’s Investigators once more, fighting for positive change in our state.
Outside the newsroom, you’ll find her exploring Austin’s live music scene or at a coffee shop or on a patio with her rescue dog, Tuxedo.
Storytelling has always been an important part of Avery’s life, and she’s ready to hear your story. If you’ve got a tip or an issue that needs investigating, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find her on Twitter and Facebook.
