“It has been my distinct honor and privilege to be a part of this newsroom and moreover this city,” Heath wrote on Facebook, announcing his move to Dayton. “San Antonio doesn’t just feel like home, it is home. This is the city where my wife and I celebrated our first anniversary, bought our first home and welcomed our son into this world. Thank you San Antonio for everything!”
Heath joined KENS in 2008 as an anchor-reporter and his last day with the station was Sunday. No word yet on when he’ll make his on-air debut with WKEF.
KENS news director Kurt Davis told the San Antonio Express-News that the station is now conducting a nationwide search for Heath’s replacement on the weekend anchor desk alongside Karen Grace. In the meantime, Grace will solo anchor KENS’s weekend evening newscasts.
