Scott Sams, who has been co-anchoring KTVT‘s weekday morning newscast since 2007, has been let go by the Dallas CBS-affiliate.
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.
Sources tell Bark that KTVT has an interview scheduled with David Rose of KCPQ, a Fox-affiliate in Seattle.
