CBS11’s newest hire is anchor/reporter Ken Molestina, who will be joining the D-FW station on Monday, Jan. 6th.

Molestina, currently with WUSA-TV in Washington, D.C., will co-anchor weekends with Sharrie Williams and also report three days a week, CBS11 director of communications Lori Conrad confirmed in an email Thursday.

“Ken is very talented and versatile,” CBS11/TXA21 president and general manager Gary Schneider said in a companion publicity release. “His experience in news gathering, reporting and anchoring is very solid. We think our viewers will make a strong connection with him.”

Molestina, a board member with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, is a University of Florida grad who previously anchored and reported for KVIA-TV in El Paso. During his stint there, from 2007-2010, he was a volunteer firefighter for the West Valley Fire Department.

“I’m just absolutely ecstatic and thrilled to be returning to Texas,” Molestina said by telephone Thursday. “I really couldn’t be any happier.”

Molestina also is co-producer of a new documentary film, The Long Island Railroad Massacre: 20 Years Later. It’s set for a Dec. 4th premiere on the Investigation Discovery network.

Sources from outside CBS11 say that Dallas-based Fox4 also talked to Molestina before he decided to go with CBS11.
