Black Hills State University graduates Brendyn Medina and Tessa Thomas are co-anchoring the KEVN Black Hills Fox expanded weekend newscast.

Both Medina, Class of ’10, and Thomas, Class of ’11, have been with the Fox News Team since 2011. KEVN Black Hills Fox recently announced the new weekend team along with its expanded one-hour program. The station’s weekend newscasts had previously been one-half hour in length.

“We are excited to make this change,” according to Black Hills Fox news director Jack Caudill. “It gives us a better opportunity to cover the news for our viewers with the depth that we strive for.”

Medina, who had been the current weekend anchor, was joined by Thomas for the Saturday and Sunday shows for the first time this past weekend.

Medina worked as anchor, news director and general manager for KBHU-TV, BHSU’s on campus TV station.

Both Medina and Thomas graduated with a bachelor’s of science degree in mass communication with an emphasis in telecommunication.

The rest of the weekend Black Hills Fox team include Darren Leeds, the current weekend meteorologist, and Megan Thompson, the weekends sports anchor.
