Current KFDX Morning and Noon Anchor Melanie Townsend has been promoted to Evening News Anchor following the departure of long time Anchor Gwyn Bevel. 

Melanie has been anchoring the KFDX and Texoma’s FOX morning newscasts since April of 2017.  Starting October 22nd she will be joining Darrell Franklin at 5, 6 and 10pm.  

Melanie is a Colorado native who attended Metropolitan State University in Denver.  She studied journalism through an innovative program called Met Media.  She also worked at the FOX station in Denver before her move to Wichita Falls. 

Since her arrival in Wichita Falls Melanie has been very involved in the community, especially in the fundraising efforts of our many non profit organizations. 

“Melanie Townsend is the real deal” said KFDX News Director Adam P. Bradshaw “She’s a passionate journalist who cares about this community and is ready to tackle the world.  I could not think of a better person to join Darrell in the evenings.”
