Fox 7 has promoted from within to fill a vacant anchor position.

Reporter Destiny Chance has been upped to weekend evening anchor, taking over for Ashley Paredez, who is now at sister station KDFW in Dallas.

Chance joined Fox 7 in February.

“In her time here at Fox 7, Destiny has proven a desire to learn and grow,” Fox 7 vice president and news director Pam Vaught said in a written statement. “She has been committed to extensively covering our community in the field, and we know that will carry through to the anchor desk.”

Earlier in her career, Chance worked at stations in Columbia, S.C.; and Augusta, Ga. She has a journalism degree from the University of South Carolina.

“Austin has always felt like home, and each day the stories I cover make me fall even more in love with this amazing city,” she said. “I thank the viewers for welcoming me with open arms, and I hope you’ll continue to welcome me in this new role.”
