Krystle Gutierrez remains with Fox4, but without a contract and with the freedom to move elsewhere

Fox4 reporter and substitute anchor Krystle Gutierrez remains with the station for now, but is no longer under contract.

A station spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday that Gutierrez, who primarily works the early morning shift, is "still a contributor for Good Day." She originally joined the Dallas-based station in July 2007, and her contract expired earlier this summer.

Gutierrez's husband, Kris Gutierrez, has been a Dallas-based reporter with cable's Fox News Channel since February 2007. But informed sources say he is angling for an anchoring job at an out-of-town news station. If that works out, Krystle will make the transition with him, ending her stay with Fox4. That's primarily why neither party opted for a new contract.

Krystle Gutierrez has not returned an email asking for comment. Fox4 management in Dallas referred an inquiry from unclebarky.com to its corporate headquarters, from where the official statement came on Gutierrez remaining a contributor for now. She was on the air during Tuesday's Good Day, which remains D-FW's No. 1-rated early morning program while also regularly outdrawing the three network morning shows from 7 to 9 a.m.
