Guy Rawlings, no relation to the longstanding baseball glove, is the newest addition to the CBS11/TXA21 sports staff.

His first day will be Monday, Nov. 25th, according to a publicity release. Besides reporting, Rawlings will anchor Friday and Saturday sportscasts on CBS11. The primary host of TXA21’s weeknightly The Fan will be veteran incumbent sports staffer Bill Jones.

“Guy’s passion for sports is evident in everything he does,” says CBS11/TXA21 president and general manager Gary Schneider. “He will be a great fit with our already strong sports team.”

Rawlings most recently worked at WGCL-TV in Atlanta, where he spent less than a year as a 5 and 11 p.m. newscast co-anchor. But the CBS station exercised an “early out” option on his contract in November of 2012, according to a statement from its owner, Meredith Corporation.

The University of Florida grad also has been on the staffs of TV stations in Orlando, FL, Baltimore, MD, Charleston, SC, Jacksonville, FL, Miramar, FL and Gainesville, FL, where his television career began.
