Dallas Reporter Heads to Portland for Anchor Gig

A Dallas Reporter is leaving Texas after 3 years and headed to Portland to Anchor.

KTVT Reporter Elizabeth Dinh is leaving the station to become a 10 and 11 p.m. anchor with Fox affiliate KPTV in Portland.

She posted the news Friday on her Facebook and Twitter pages.

Dinh came to Dallas from Seattle’s KOMO and worked the morning shift at the station. 

“DFW will always have a special place in my heart,” said Dinh, who was born in Irving and raised in Grand Prairie and Arlington. She’s a graduate of UT-Arlington.

Dinh has been public about owing her life to her husband, Kevin, who in June, 2012 donated one of his kidneys to her after a medical condition caused both of Dinh’s kidneys to fail. She also has worked for TV stations in Amarillo and Tampa, FL, and in 2003 won the Miss Asian American Texas pageant.

“It will be an honor to join this talented, hard-working team as I continue to grow as a journalist,” Dinh said of her impending tenure at KPTV.

She will be at the Dallas station a couple of more weeks.
