Villegas comes to the CBS owned station from Rio Grande Valley ABC affiliate KRGV.
She wrote on her facebook page, “You are looking at the newest MORNING METEOROLOGIST for KTVT – CBS Channel 11 in Dallas/Fort Worth!!!!!! I’ll be a part of a NEW weekend morning show and will add as a second morning meteorologist during the work week.”
Dallas media blogger Ed Bark, who first reported the move said “Villegas’ arrival means that CBS11 no longer will be the only D-FW station without a woman on their weather team. NBC5 has three while Fox4 and Gannett8 each have two.”
