Casey Claiborne is an anchor and reporter for FOX 7 Austin.
He attended the University of North Texas in Denton where he majored in Electronic News.
Casey got his start in broadcasting on the radio in his hometown of Jacksonville, TX. At the age of 16, he began hosting the "Let's Talk" program every Saturday morning on KEBE AM 1400. Before moving to Austin, Casey worked as a reporter and weekend morning anchor at KETK in Tyler, TX just 20 minutes from his hometown.
While reporting here at Fox 7, Casey frequently covered the City of Austin politics as well as breaking news. On the lighter side, he covered the Super Bowl in Houston, Austin City Limits Music Festival and SXSW. Casey has interviewed some of his heroes like William Shatner, Mark Hamill, Steve Carrell, Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, and Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson.
Casey also enjoyed regularly interviewing East Austin native and “nation’s oldest veteran,” the late Richard Overton.
Speaking of music, Casey is glad to be living in the “live music capital of the world” because music is something he's passionate about. In his spare time, you'll find him playing his piano, singing and writing his own original music.
Casey lives in Leander with his wife Alice and their time-traveling dog Mr. Peabody.
