Brian New

Brian joined the CBS 11 News team in 2013 after working as an investigative reporter for the CBS affiliate in San Antonio. While in South Texas, he was honored with six Lone Star Emmys, including one for his work along the U.S.-Mexico border. His investigations have exposed how drunk drivers dodged DWI charges, as well as how a loophole in a Texas law set mentally ill juvenile offenders free. As a result of a 2010 investigation, the San Antonio Police Department went back and tested thousands of old rape kits.

A native of Denver, Brian received his degree in broadcast journalism from Syracuse University. He went on to work as a reporter in Cheyenne, Amarillo and Omaha before he joined KENS in San Antonio, where he was named “Best Reporter” by the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters in 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Brian and his wife Rachel are both avid runners and big football fans. They are happy to make their home in North Texas with their young son, Trent.
