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.
