A Dallas station's high profile Consumer Reporter is headed for the exit on Friday.
KXAS consumer-investigative reporter Deanna Dewberry is leaving the station at week's end.
News director Mark Ginther informed surprised staffers this week that Dewberry is leaving.
In his memo, Ginther said that Dewberry is “passionate about consumer reporting,” but likewise is “passionate about anchoring. And we’ve allowed her to pursue such a job . . . Her hard work and commitment to consumer issues has educated our viewers, helped shape new legislation and helped us toward our goal of becoming the consumer leader in our market.”
Ginther said that station management “warmly wish her well as she pursues what is best for her growing family.”
Dewberry joined KXAS in October 2012 from WISH in Indianapolis, where she had worked since 2005 after spending seven years as an anchor/reporter for WFAA.
