Veteran sports anchor-reporter Gina Miller is leaving CBS11/TXA21 after an eight-year run to “pursue new entrepreneurial projects that I will share with you in the near future.”
Miller announced her intentions Tuesday on her Facebook page, adding that “I enjoyed every minute of the time I spent working with the dedicated, talented and passionate team at CBS11 & TXA21.”
Miller, who has already left the stations, has been hosting TXA21’s The Fan, which airs from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. weeknights. She also has anchored the pre- and post-game shows for the station’s Friday night Texas Rangers games.
“Covering sports in Dallas/Fort Worth was my childhood dream and is perhaps one of the greatest jobs in the world,” Miller said in her Facebook post. “Being a part of your lives every day was an absolute honor. I am living proof that you can do what you love and have fun in the process. I am as much a fan of our DFW sports teams and personalities today as I was as a 14-year-old cheering for them in my living room.”
Miller joined CBS11/TXA21 in 2005 after a three-year stint as a sports reporter for rival WFAA8. “I’d been without a contract for a year and I think I just kind of got lost in the shuffle at Channel 8,” Miller said in an extended 2009 profile posted on unclebarky.com. “I didn’t see any room for growth there.”
Miller since has married and had her first child, a daughter, in October 2011.
CBS11/TXA21 director of communications Lori Conrad, who was out of the office Tuesday, said Wednesday that The Fan will be hosted on a rotating basis by CBS11/TXA21 sports personnel until a full-time replacement is named.
“I hope to return to a TV near you soon,” Miller said in Tuesday’s Facebook message.
