Keith Garvin Set to Join KPRC in Houston

Keith Garvin is joining KPRC, the NBC-affiliate in Houston, as a night reporter and anchor of the 4 p.m. newscast, Houston media blogger Mike McGuff reports.

Garvin comes from KTVT, the CBS O&O in Dallas, where he was a reporter and fill-in anchor. He previously worked at WRC, the NBC O&O in Washington, DC.

Garvin replaces Iain Page as 4 p.m. anchor. Page is rumored to be “leaving the station soon to pursue other opportunities,” according to McGuff.

Anchor-Reporter Keith Garvin Exiting KTVT

Keith Garvin, an anchor and reporter at KTVT, is leaving the Dallas CBS O&O, media blogger Ed Bark reports.

Garvin joined WTVT from WRC in 2009. He has held a variety of positions at the station, most recently as a reporter and fill-in anchor after he was replaced by Brendan Higgins at the morning anchor desk earlier this year.

“I also can say my CBS11 colleagues are not only some of the hardest working people in the industry, but many of them have become dear, lifelong friends,” Garvin said. Read more

Brendan Higgins Joins KTVT as Morning Anchor

Brendan Higgins is joining KTVT, the CBS O&O in Dallas, as a morning anchor.

Higgins will be paired with Adrienne Bankert from 4:30 to 7 a.m. beginning June 25. He most recently worked at rival KXAS, where he was the early morning anchor from 2004-10.

“Brendan is well-known and well-liked by local viewers,” KTVT president and general manager Gary Schneider said in a statement. “We believe he and Adrienne will make a strong connection with morning news viewers based on their knowledge, experience and warm personalities.”

Keith Garvin, the current early-morning anchor, will remain with KTVT as a reporter and fill-in anchor, according to Dallas media blogger Ed Bark.

Keith Garvin Moves To Mornings at KTVT

After an exhaustive search for a morning anchor, CBS owned-and-operated KTVT in Dallas has named an in-house journalist to fill the open spot: 4 p.m. anchor Keith Garvin.

Garvin, who began this morning, will co-anchor the morning show with Lisa Piniero, according to Uncle Barky’s Bytes. He was hired in 2009 to anchor a two-hour evening newscast on sister-station KXTA. That show is being replaced with a locally-produced sports program and a syndicated episode of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

The KTVT morning show has been without a permanent co-anchor since March, when Scott Sams was cut loose in March after four years with the station.

KTXA Scraps Second Hour of Primetime Newscast

KTXA — the CBS-owned  in Dallas — announced that they will replace an hourlong 8 p.m. newscast with “America’s Funniest Home Videos” beginning on September 12.

The 8 p.m. newscast, which currently is the second hour of “First in Prime,” debuted in 2006. According to Uncle Barky’s Bytes, ratings for the show have been “problematic” of late, prompting the station to shave an hour from the nightly broadcast.

The 8 p.m. broadcast is currently divided into two parts: a half-hour of local news anchored by Keith Garvin and Tracy Kornet (pictured, left) followed by a half-hour of sports news anchored by Gina Miller. Beginning next week, Garvin will anchor the 7 p.m. local news solo; Miller’s sports show will slide back an hour, from 8:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Read more
