You may have noticed a familiar name while watching your television news last week. The Austin American-Statesman recently announced plans to team up with KVUE to share longtime reporter Tony Plohetski, and he hit the air with his first stories of the new partnership.
Plohetski, 35, has had a key role in building up our investigative coverage over the past couple of years. Before that, he was on the police beat for many years and one of our go-to reporters for big news, from Hurricane Katrina to the plane that was flown into the IRS building in North Austin.
