After just over three years at D-FW’s CBS11, reporter Elizabeth Dinh is leaving to become a 10 and 11 p.m. anchor with Fox affiliate KPTV-TV in Portland, Oregon. She posted the news Friday on her Facebook and Twitter pages.

Dinh, who joined CBS11 in December 2012 from Seattle’s KOMO-TV, primarily has worked the morning shift and will remain with the station “for a couple more weeks,” she said on Facebook.

“DFW will always have a special place in my heart,” said Dinh, who was born in Irving and raised in Grand Prairie and Arlington. She’s a graduate of UT-Arlington.

Dinh has been public about owing her life to her husband, Kevin, who in June, 2012 donated one of his kidneys to her after a medical condition caused both of Dinh’s kidneys to fail. She also has worked for TV stations in Amarillo and Tampa, FL, and in 2003 won the Miss Asian American Texas pageant.

“It will be an honor to join this talented, hard-working team as I continue to grow as a journalist,” Dinh said of her impending tenure at KPTV.
