IN BRIEF….NEW HORIZONS EDITION

Longtime KXAS anchor Meredith Land is abandoning the late-evening anchor desk at the NBC-owned Dallas station for (sing along now) a better “work-life balance.”

See the family?

While she’s gone from the 10 pm newscast she’s sticking with the 5 and 6 p. programs.

But not until AFTER the November sweeps.

Priorities and…..PRIORITIES.

She “accepted a once in a lifetime opportunity as weekend morning anchor for NBC 10 [WJAR]..”

It’s a Sinclair station so….caveat emptor.
