WFAA8 adds a third Good Morning Texas host

Dallas-based WFAA8 is making it a threesome again on Good Morning Texas by naming Kristin Mitchell (above) to co-host with incumbents Gary Cogill and Amy Vanderoef.

Mitchell, a married mother of four, will make her GMT debut on Tuesday, the station announced. She previously worked at KMOV-TV in St. Louis as a morning news co-anchor and also co-hosted the weekly At the Zoo program while at that station. KMOV and WFAA8 both are owned by Belo Corp.

Dave Muscari, vice president of product development for WFAA8, described Mitchell as a "warm, friendly personality, and we believe she will connect well with Good Morning Texas viewers."

Mitchell, a University of Kansas graduate, also has anchored evening newscasts for WOLO-TV in Columbus, S.C. She fills a vacancy left by Brenda Teele, who quit WFAA8 and GMT last December to spend more time at her husband's Dallas-based law firm.

GMT, which is produced by WFAA8, airs at 9 a.m. weekdays.
