- Brooke Katz was a well-liked news anchor at the local CBS News station in Dallas.
- As of November 2023, she has left the team.
- The station, Brooke, and her co-anchor are staying mum about Brooke's absence.
So what happened? Here's what we know.
So, what happened to Brooke Katz?
At time of writing, neither the station nor Brooke have shared any reason for the parting of ways, per FTV Live.
We know per the anchor's Instagram that her mother passed away in 2020. Could she be taking time off to deal with her grief? This is only speculation, but no matter the impetus for Brooke leaving the CBS station, fans are less than thrilled not to see her smiling face any longer.
Brooke Katz's fans miss seeing her on the news.
"Why did you leave? We so much enjoyed watching your a.m. news broadcasting!" someone else commented on her Instagram.
Commenting on a tweet saying Brooke had left the Dallas station, a Twitter user said, "This is terrible news if it's true. She's such a delightful personality."
Brooke Katz's former co-anchor is still there.
Although Brooke has left CBS 11 News in Dallas, her former co-anchor, Keith Russell, is still there in the mornings. While he is active on Twitter, it seems the newsman is also remaining tight-lipped about the empty seat next to him.
Commenting to his recent tweet, one fan asked, "Been a long time loyal to ONLY channel 11 and will remain. Just asking about Brooke."
When Keith didn't respond, the Twitter user followed up with, "Well, I guess Brooke is gone. No replies?"
We hope to see Brooke Katz again soon on the news.
With an impressive resume that includes working at news stations in Dallas and Charlotte, N.C. over the course of 15 years, we're guessing Brooke will land on her feet soon somewhere else.
Meanwhile, Brooke is openly searching for a new role, having posted this message to her LinkedIn in early November: "I am looking for a new role and would appreciate your support. Thank you in advance for any connections, advice, or opportunities you can offer."
Here's wishing Brooke much luck as she looks for a new news desk to call home. Judging from the reaction to her leaving her former station, she is sure to gain a loyal following wherever she ends up.
