Former CBS11 early morning co-anchor Scott Sams will be keeping roughly the same hours with his new job at Dallas-based KRLD-AM (1080) radio.
Sams will be joining incumbent anchors Mike Rogers and Alice Rios on weekdays from 5 to 10 a.m., beginning June 1st. A station memo says that Sams "brings a wealth of news experience to morning drive as we continue building and refining our 'All News, All Day brand.' "
Sams worked the early morning shift at CBS11 for four years until the station decided not to renew his contract in March. He earlier spent nearly 20 years at rival station WFAA8, and joined CBS11 from KTEN-TV in Sherman, TX. CBS11 hasn't yet named a replacement for Sams. Both KRLD and CBS11 are part of the CBS corporate cluster, so Sams hasn't strayed all that far from the mothership.
