KXAS NBC5, which logged the last reporter departure of 2013, now has the first of the New Year.

Omar Villafranca, who joined the station in January 2008, will remain in North Texas, though. He’s moving over to CBS News, Villafranca tweeted, to become the Dallas-based correspondent for the network’s Newspath Villafranca’s turf also will include the Southwest region.

The official announcement from CBS should come this week.
