New newser at D-FW's NBC5

Former NBC5 (KXAS) intern Kim Fischer will be rejoining the Fort Worth-based mothership as a full-time reporter after a stint at WOAI-TV in San Antonio.

Her move back to North Texas was first reported by TV critic Jeanne Jakle of the San Antonio Express-News.

Fischer, set to start at NBC5 on Sept. 1st, also was the Scrappy the Eagle mascot during her time as a student at the University of North Texas before getting her first full-time TV news job at KRBC-TV in Abilene, according to her WOAI bio. She left TV news in 2005 to become host/producer of Saturday editions of the Hot on Homes infomercials before joining WOAI, San Antonio's NBC affiliate.

"The money's better and the market's bigger," Fischer tells Jakle of her move to NBC5. Her boyfriend also lives in Dallas, she noted.

Fischer says that NBC5 management also has told her she'll have opportunities to substitute anchor and do some sports reporting.

NBC5 vice president of content development Susan Tully hasn't yet returned an email regarding Fischer.
