Fred Cantu

Known by Austinites as “Uncle Fred,” Fred Cantú has been part of the local news scene for more than 20 years. Currently, he anchors the afternoon and evening news at K-EYE, Austin's CBS affiliate. A resident of South Austin, he gets up early each day to take his grandchildren to school. Watching him present our news every evening is like getting together with family. Speaking of family, to get to know Fred on a more personal level, go to for family photos and advice on "correct" local pronunciations (Fred says it’s OK to say "Man-check" and "Per-denales," so it must be).
