Subtract Sandra Hernandez from "The 33" news team

Reporter Sandra Hernandez has departed KDAF-TV ("The 33") after being hired in late 2006.

Her picture and biography already have been removed from the KDAF website.

Hernandez previously worked at Dallas-based Fox4 as co-anchor of the station's 5 to 6 a.m. portion of Good Day. She then freelanced in Los Angeles before returning to D-FW. Efforts to reach Hernandez have so far been unsuccessful.

Hernandez joins a host of anchors and reporters who have left the station under news director David Duitch, who took that position a year ago after an earlier stint as news director at WFAA8 in Dallas.

Duitch also has made a number of his own hires, including former NBC5 meteorologist Rebecca Miller and two "backpack journalists" who were laid off earlier this year by The Dallas Morning News.

KDAF, which has a nightly 9 p.m. local newscast, recently joined in a content-sharing arrangement with Fox4 and NBC5. The station plans to debut a 5:30 p.m. newscast sometime this fall.
