Austin is a follicly-challenged journalist who anchors and produces "The Why." He returned to Newsy after working as a sports reporter at WCIA (Champaign, IL) and sports director at KMIZ (Columbia, MO). Austin covered a couple World Series, two SEC Championship games, Michael Sam's coming out and the 2015 Mizzou campus protests. Now he is searching for compelling perspectives and context in today's news cycle. The quickest way to Austin's heart: Carbs, House Hunters, concerts and the hit rom-com Love Actually.
