After joining D-FW’s CBS11 as a package deal three years ago, Dan Haggerty and Cristin Severance will be leaving together at the end of this month to be key players at Portland, OR’s KGW-TV.

In a post on his Facebook page, he writes, “The Haggertys are on the move! Saying that I’m excited would be an understatement.”

Haggerty said he’ll become the “main anchor” for KGW, the market’s NBC station. And Severance will join the station’s investigative unit.

“KGW’s reputation is second to none,” Haggerty says. “I will join a team of passionate journalists and experienced storytellers, which will include the best I’ve ever known, my wife.”

“We truly loved our time here, but the opportunity was too good to pass up,” Severance said in a separate message to unclebarky.com.

Married in 2014, Haggerty and Severance joined CBS11 on September 21, 2015 from KGTV-TV, San Diego’s ABC affiliate. She has headed CBS11’s investigative unit and he’s anchored on weekends while also reporting three days a week. Their twin sons, Will and Miles, were born during the couple’s stay at CBS11.

“Of course, I will miss Texas, my friends and family at CBS11,” Haggerty says. “Especially my weekend peeps. We did some great work here that I’m really proud to say I was a part of . . . My boys will always be Texans. And Texas, you’ll always be with us.”
