(WFXG) - Lockwood Broadcast Group announces Trent Butler as the new Evening Anchor of WFXG FOX54, Lockwood’s FOX affiliate in Augusta, Georgia (DMA #112). 

Butler is an award-winning journalist, bringing over 30 years of broadcast experience to 6:30pm, 10pm and 11pm newscasts. Most recently, he anchored at WAFF 48 in Huntsville, Alabama and WIAT in Birmingham.

Butler says, “This really is a homecoming for me—I was lucky to work with my 6:30pm co-anchor Ashley Campbell and the amazing Jay Jefferies earlier in my career, right here in the CSRA.  I’m thrilled to team up again.  Fox54 is assembling a fantastic group of experienced broadcasters. 

“The best part is that Ashley, Jay and I all have deep roots in this community.  My wife grew up in Martinez as the daughter of two teachers, so we have family here, we have history here.  My daughter is currently receiving a great education at Augusta University.  It’s an honor to serve our neighbors and we promise to bring you the CSRA’s most comprehensive nightly newscast.”

“We are grateful to bring Trent back home to Augusta.  He is a consummate professional, an old-school journalist committed to following the facts.  He loves the CSRA and can’t wait to greet you on the news each night with a smile.” said Dave Hanna, Lockwood Broadcast Group President.
