D-FW’s CBS11 has hired Gilma Avalos to anchor its fledgling weekend morning newscasts.

She’ll join the station on Oct. 27th, teaming with recently hired meteorologist Lisa Villegas, CBS11 announced Thursday.

Avalos, a Columbia University graduate, arrives from Miami’s NBC station, WTVJ-TV, where she spent three years. As a 12-year-old, she broke into the TV biz as the host of Paleokids, a Discovery Channel Latin America children’s show.

CBS11’s weekend morning newscasts run from 8 to 9 a.m. on Saturday and from 7 to 8 a.m. on Sunday.
