Tammy Dombeck, the popular traffic reporter who left KXAS/Channel 5 last year, is coming to KTVT/Channel 11. But so far, it's a fill-in gig.

"CBS-11 has offered me a part-time position filling in for traffic when there is a need due to vacation/holiday schedules," Dombeck says in a Facebook email. "I will be on air this Wednesday for introductions and to explain my new position there."

The gig begins in earnest next week, when Dombeck fills in during the 4:30-7 a.m. CBS 11 News This Morning for morning traffic reporter Whitney Drolen while Drolen fills in on the anchor desk for vacationing co-anchor Adrienne Bankert, according to CBS 11 spokeswoman Lori Conrad. Dombeck will also be on-air the following week, when Drolen is on vacation.

Right now, this is purely fill-in, but it's possible you could see more of her depending on vacation schedules. The gig reunites Dombeck with CBS 11 morning co-anchor Brendan Higgins, whom she worked with for several years at NBC 5.

"I'm thrilled to be going to CBS!," Dombeck says. "We'll see where this next TV gig takes me."
