Mike Garber Leaves KTVT

Mike Garber is out as news director at KTVT.

“Mike Garber has left to pursue other opportunities, and we wish him well,” a station spokesperson told TVSpy.

Garber started at the Dallas CBS-owned station in July 2014.

Garber came to KTVT from WPTV in West Palm Beach, Fla. He’s worked as news director at WTLV-WJXX in Jacksonville, Fla., and WLTX in Columbia, S.C.

Dallas media blog Uncle Barky reports “In the May 2016 sweeps, CBS11 was the only station without any wins at 6 a.m. or 5, 6 and 10 p.m. in either total viewers or 25-to-54-year-olds (the main advertiser target audience for news programming).”

CBS11 finished a distant last across the board among 25-to-54-year-olds and on the bottom in total viewers everywhere except 10 p.m., where it edged Fox4 for third place.
