While I was away . . . well, not that much happened in D-FW on the hiring or firing front.

But there is one new on-camera addition to share. Chris Jose, who spent the last five years on the early morning shift at two Denver stations, Fox’s KDVR-TV and The CW’s KWGN-TV, will be joining Fort Worth-based NBC5 in September as a full-time reporter. He tweeted the news earlier this month.

The Washington State University graduate previously worked at TV stations in Cheyenne, Wyoming and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. His station bio says that Jose also regularly emcees the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival and the Filipino American Community of Colorado’s Philippine Festival.

***CBS11 announced the hiring of two new behind-the-scenes news bosses. Laurie Passman, from KTVK-TV in Phoenix, has been named assistant news director while CJ Hoyt, from WTOL-TV in Toledo, Ohio, is the new managing editor. Both will report to news director Mike Garber. According to the announcement, Hoyt’s first day at CBS11 is Monday, Aug. 17th; Passman arrives on Aug. 31st. Reporters, re-start your engines.
