Garry Seith, who had worked for KTVT/Channel 11 and sister station KTXA/Channel 21 since 2006, has exited the station, local-TV blogger Ed Bark reports on his Uncle Barky’s Bytes site.
CBS 11/TXA 21 spokeswoman Lori Conrad confirmed for both Bark and DFW.com that Seith is no longer with the station. She told Bark that Jeff Jamison, who has been a member of the CBS 11 weather team since 2003 (and grew up in Fort Worth), will fill in on the morning shift till a replacement can be found.
Seith came to KTXA in the fall of 2006, when the station launched a two-hour prime-time newscast. In summer 2010, he suffered a broken shoulder blade, a few broken ribs and some muscle damage in his neck in a motorcycle wreck that kept him off the air for several weeks.
Seith had also worked for stations in St. Louis. We’ve sent him an email seeking comment; will update if he replies.
CBS 11 News This Morning, currently anchored by Adrienne Bankert and Brendan Higgins with Whitney Drolen doing traffic, has undergone a lot of lineup changes during the past several years. Bankert and Higgins began as the anchor team in 2012; since 2007, Scott Sams, Shannon Hori, Ginger Allen, Lisa Pineiro and Keith Garvin have all taken turns in the anchor chair. Allen is the only one still with the station, working on its investigative reporting team; Sams is a news anchor for KRLD/1080 am; Pineiro is one of the hosts of D The Broadcast on KTXD/Channel 47. The other have moved on to other markets.
