Dave Froehlich announced he was leaving KHOU 11 Houston as its morning co-anchor with Kimberly Davis and Stephanie Simmons.

Dave Froehlich returns to FOX 7 Austin KTBC

Here is what Froehlich said on Instagram in a video:

"All right. Exciting morning. Hectic morning. But if you didn't know and you care, my time on KHOU 11 morning news and my time at KHOU has come to an end as of this morning. 

It's very full circle. I just happen to know it was September 1st when I got to walk in the building for the first time, September 1st, 2021, for my for my interview there. And now two years later, it's wrapped up. 

And it was a dream come true to get to work in TV in my hometown. It's what I always wanted to do and I got to do it. And it was it was everything I could have hoped it would have been because of the great people who you see on the show every day, Steph and Kim and Chita and Jen and and all the reporters, all the producers, all the directors, all the editors and everybody in the building. So that's a great team. 

I hope you keep watching the show. I'm going to keep watching the show. And I just want to say thank you for a great experience and a great run at KHOU. Again, I'm going to keep watching. 

As for what I'm going to do next, um, I don't know. I'll let you know, but I don't know right now. I might take a nap."

UPDATE:  On the same holiday weekend that Froehlich said he was leaving, another Houston TV newser announced her departure, too.
