Karen-Borta2Back in December, we told you that longtime evening anchor Karen Borta was moving to mornings at KTVT, the CBS-owned station in Dallas. Well, the move happened on Monday with little-to-no fanfare.

Her colleagues hardly mentioned her 4:30 a.m. debut. At the end of the newscast, Borta spoke briefly about her new position, saying, “And I’ve got the first show under my belt.”

“CBS 11 News This Morning” is going through a major overhaul. KTVT confirmed to Uncle Barky’s Bytes that the early morning news team is still temporary. Traffic reporter Tammy Dombeck and co-anchor Jason Allen have been named interim replacements while the station searches for permanent members of the team. The only long-term member of the morning team is meteorologist Scott Padgett, who joined in September 2013.

Stay tuned for more changes to come at “11 News This Morning.”
