The Seattle TV market is losing to news executives.

KING News Director Mark Ginther is leaving the station to take the ND job at KXAS in Dallas. Ginther's wife, Sarah Garza is leaving her gig as the Assistant News Director at KOMO to follow her husband to Dallas. 

Both are no strangers to Dallas, Ginther worked as the News Director at WFAA before heading to Seattle. Garza was the Deuce at KTVT from 2007-2009. 

Ginther replaces Susan Tully who was named GM at NBC O&O WVIT in Connecticut.
