"I've enjoyed my time at abc13 and will truly miss my colleagues," Luster told "I honestly have nothing negative to say about my time there. I'm excited to join the Waste Management Marketing team."

Right under 20 years, Luster is leaving the TV world where he also worked at Telemundo KTMD and Fox 26 KRIV/My20 KTXH. But before you TV types get too sentimental, Luster has already posted about some of the cool video production toys he's playing with at his new job.

I'm sure we will soon be watching more creative work from Luster, who has already released the acclaimed documentary Stick 'Em Up!.

As for the KTRK abc13 programming department where Luster worked, he is just one of the latest departures in case you are looking for a job in Texas television. Three other staffers in that department departed the ABC owned and operated station near the end of 2013 including Michael Carl. So roll the die and apply.
