KEYE, KTBC, KVUE and KXAN have all seen staffers come and go in recent weeks.

At KEYE, Chrisdyann Uribe has signed on as morning traffic anchor. She arrives from a station in El Paso.

Ashley Roberts is now filing reports from KEYE’s Traffic Tracker in the morning and from the studio during the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts.

Fox-owned KTBC reports weekend meteorologist Scott Prinsen has left the station. He’d been there since 2004 and, before that, was at Time Warner Cable News.

Longtime KVUE reporter Shelton Green waved farewell to viewers last week.

KVUE weekend morning anchor Jade Mingus is off on maternity leave. Former KTBC anchor Jenni Lee will be filling in while she’s out.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the KVUE news team,” Lee said. “I’ve known many of them for several years and have always admired and respected them.”

And at KXAN, morning co-anchor Brian Sanders has left the station. The search is on for a replacement.
