CBS11 has hired reporter MaryAnn Martinez (left/above), who joins the station from Fox-owned KTTV-TV in Los Angeles, where she barely stopped long enough for a cup of coffee and a scone.

Martinez, who joins CBS11 on Monday, May 15th, left San Antonio’s KENS-TV for KTTV in mid-March of this year. “It’s definitely going to be an adventure,” she told San Antonio Express-News TV writer Jeanne Jakle at the time.

But the Baylor University graduate only freelanced for KTTV, CBS11 director of communications Lori Conrad said Friday. So after a little over two years with KENS and a little under two months with KTTV, she’s back in her native Texas. Martinez also has worked at TV stations in El Paso, Miami, Las Vegas and San Diego. She was a nightside reporter with KENS.

***Debbie Denmon spent 12 years at WFAA before the station declined to renew her contract in July of 2012. She was dropped after losing a discrimination suit filed against the station, which was then owned by Dallas-based Belo Corp. It’s now run from afar by TEGNA.

Denmon since got married and for a while was director of communications for the Dallas District Attorney’s office. She’s now newly in St. Petersburg, FL as an on-air personality for the Home Shopping Network.

“It’s a great opportunity for me that marries two of my favorite things -- TV and shopping,” she said in a message to unclebarky.com.

Denmon said that her husband, Richard Greagor, and their son, Kingston, will be joining her when the school year is completed.
