Chris Burrous left WPIX after yesterday’s PIX 11 Morning News.  He is grabbing an anchor gig at Tribune-owned KTLA in Los Angeles.

News director Bill Carey hired Burrous last June as part of the morning show overhaul at Channel 11.  Burrous heads back to the West Coast after previously working in Sacramento.

The Daily News reports Burrous will be the solo anchor of a new weekend morning show at KTLA.

On yesterday’s PIX 11 Morning News, Burrous thanked the viewers for “being so kind to me and my family.”

As a temporary replacement, Channel 11 will use a rotation of anchors to fill his slot on the PIX 11 Morning News alongside Sukanya Krishnan.
