Garcia, who is leaving for a job in talk radio in San Diego, CA, told the San Antonio Express-News, “I’ll miss my Fox family,” and added, “The opportunity I’m taking was too good to pass up.”

Keith confirmed with the Express-News, he was leaving KABB for a job as the chief communication officer at the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

He’s left the station once before. In 2010, when he was an anchor at KABB, he went to work for a local school district. He returned in 2011 as assistant news director.

“This is one of the toughest decisions I have ever had to make,” Keith said. “Great things are happening at KABB and WOAI and I’ll miss everyone I work with.”

Garcia has worked at KABB since August 2010.  He has also worked at KSWO in Lawton, OK, KSAT in San Antonio, KFMB in San Diego and KTLA in Los Angeles.

Jacqueline Ortiz Leaving San Antonio’s WOAI

jacqueline ortizAfter 16 years at WOAI-KABB, Jacqueline Ortiz is leaving the stations to spend more time with her family, the San Antonio Express- News reports.

“It was her decision,” WOAI-KABB news director Blaise Labbe said. “She wanted to spend more time with her family. Before she signed her last contract, she had said her husband wanted her to be home more with her kids — a son and daughter — but she decided to stay on the job.”

Ortiz will continue to co-anchor the weekend newscasts until July 13. Until a permanent replacement is hired, KABB weekend anchor Grace White will anchor alongside Jaie Avila on the WOAI weekend newscasts and Ted Garcia will anchor solo on the KABB weekend newscasts, according to the Express-News.

Three Years After Leaving KABB, Cynthia Lee Rejoins Station as Weekend Anchor

KABB has re-hired Cynthia Lee as a reporter and weekend anchor, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

Lee spent seven years anchoring the evening newscasts for the San Antonio Fox-affiliate. She left in 2009 and has spent the past three years producing segments on Fox Sports Southwest.

“KABB was very good to me the first time around,” Lee said. “I believe in the people and the product. It was a no brainer to go back and I can’t believe I even get my old desk.”

Lee will anchor the weekend evening newscasts with Ted Garcia when she rejoins the station on April 9. She replaces Mileka Lincoln, who joined Austin’s KEYE this week.
