afrotech.com - (Photo/Twitter) Living in a time where Black representation in media is still needed, we love to see the faces seated at this news station’s desk.BET reports that local Texas news station KCEN — an NBC affiliate — has a show where its hosts are all Black women.The show — “Texas Today” — is led by Jasmin Caldwell, Taheshah Moise, and meteorologist Ashley Carter, according to the outlet. Residents of Temple, Waco, Killeen, and surrounding areas are able to start their mornings by tuning into the show for the news.Although being a part of the trio herself, the hiring move from KCEN still feels surreal in a sense.“Growing up, I always saw all-white news anchors,” she said, according to BET. “I didn’t think that there would ever be Black newscasts. I knew there was always room for one, but I didn’t think that I would see three African Americans — male or female — permanently, all at one time. No way.”
