Channel 11 Sportscaster Rick Garcia Departs
KTTV/Channel 11 sportscaster Rick Garcia gave his farewells Monday night on the Fox 11 news.
According to the station, Garcia spent 22 years at KTTV. Until recently, he also did double duty, anchoring sister station KCOP/13's jiggle newscast with Lauren Sanchez. (Fox 11 anchors Christina Devine and Carlos Amezcua now handle that newscast as well.)
Garcia's photo and bio have already been removed from Fox 11's bio page. Over at TV News Talk.net, speculation is surrounding the possibility that Garcia may wind up at KNBC (replacing Paul Moyer? That'd be quite a jump) or KTLA, which continues to expand its newscasts.
As another commenter notes, weatherman Mark Thompson told Garcia that he had a feeling he'd be seeing the sports anchor again "real soon." Hmm.
