Veteran D-FW traffic reporter Tammy Dombeck is picking up speed at CBS11.

Although still a free-lancer, she’s now the new weekday travel guide on the stations 4 and 5 p.m. newscasts.

CBS11 communications director Lori Conrad confirmed the promotion Tuesday. It will be the first time the station’s late afternoon and early evening newscasts have had regular traffic segments, Conrad said. Dombeck also has been spreading the news on her Twitter and Facebook pages.

After 12 years as rival station NBC5’s a.m. traffic anchor, Dombeck left in July of last year after the two sides failed to reach agreement on a new contract. After six months off the air, in accordance with a “non-compete” clause, she began filling in on CBS11’s early morning newscasts on March 4th.
