SWING BATTAH, BATTAH INTO THE DALLAS TV ETHER.

It’s not so much a market jump as an Olympic pole vault as Hannah Battah is named the new weekend anchor of “Good Day” at Fox O&O KDFW in Dallas.

The successor to the recently departed Jenny Anchondo is coming from Sinclair duopoly KBAK/KBFX in Bakersfield, CA, which amounts to a 126-market uptick.

Dallas media writer Uncle Barky reports that Fox4 vice president and news director Robin Whitmeyer said in a statement that Battah is a “multi-talented journalist with skills extending beyond the camera, often producing, reporting and anchoring all in the same day.”

Her first day is June 11th.
