Sports anchor Babe Laufenberg abruptly leaving CBS11 after 17-year stint

The above tweets, posted Tuesday morning by Babe Laufenberg, pretty much say it all.

The longtime CBS11 sports anchor and former backup quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys is parting ways with the D-FW station over a contract stalement. His last 10 p.m. sportscast will be Wednesday of this week, he says. He’s been CBS11’s head sports anchor for 17 years.

But, as Laufenberg notes, he’ll still be doing Cowboys radio broadcasts with partner Brad Sham. On Tuesday Sham tweeted, “One of the BEST parts of anncng Cowboys games is working with Babe. More than a b’cast partner he’s my friend. Trust Bambino. All’s well.”

CBS11 representatives could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday morning.
