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.”

KTVT decided not to renew Sams’s contract, according to Dallas media reporter Ed Bark. The station plans to name his replacement shortly.
This is the second time that Sams has unceremoniously departed a Dallas station. He spent nearly two decades with ABC-affiliate WFAA before being cut in 2004. Sams sued WFAA for wrongful termination and eventually received a $660,000 settlement.
