KTVT in Dallas quietly moved evening/late Anchor Karen Borta to the morning show yesterday.
Borta hit the air wide awake at 4:30 a.m. to minimal fanfare.
Colleagues made only brief mentions of her debut, with Borta herself saying at the end of the two-and-a-half hour shift, “And I’ve got the first show under my belt.”
KTVT has never been better than fourth in morning ratings and the show is undergoing an overhaul.
The station confirms that its early morning foursome is still temporary. Both co-anchor Jason Allen and traffic reporter Tammy Dombeck have been deemed interim replacements while the station searches for “permanent” members of the team under relatively new news director Mike Garber.

Update: This morning we reported this story like it was new. It was not, in fact FTVLive reported Borta's move to mornings back on December 19th. Looks like sometimes we even scoop ourselves. Although to be honest we blame it on a late night cheering on the Buckeyes to a National Championship. Go Bucks!
