Tim Gerber to leave KSAT 12 San Antonio

Tim Gerber announced plans to leave KSAT 12 San Antonio after 20 years.

Here is a portion of what Gerber wrote on Facebook:

"It’s time to go home.

About a year ago I took my family up to my home state of Ohio for a Fall adventure. It was the first time in about a decade that I’d been up North to see the beauty of the changing seasons and all the colorful leaves. It was a magical trip for my daughter who has spent her entire life here in Texas, with just small glimpses of my former life in Ohio when we would go back 'home' for visits each year.

That trip was another reminder of what was missing in my life outside of Ohio. I had grown tired of living so far from family and it was time to do something about it. By the end of the week the entire course of our lives had been altered. My wife and I decided it was time to go home for good.

Nearly 20 years ago I came to San Antonio from Toledo, Ohio where I was working as a reporter and anchor at WTVG, the ABC owned station. I met my wife Anne at the station where she worked as a producer. We were married in September 2003 and by November I was looking for a new job.

Fortunately for me, Jim Boyle, the news director here at KSAT at the time, found my resume and invited me down for an interview in early January 2004. It went very well and a few weeks later I moved here to start my career at KSAT. The rest, as they say, is history.

On January 26 next year I will reach my 20th Anniversary working here. Five days later, I will walk out the doors for the final time.

Walking away from the job you’ve worked for two decades certainly isn’t easy, but it is a decision I am fully at peace with. This wasn’t a snap decision made in a vacuum. It’s one I’ve wrestled with probably for the past 5 years. It was also the subject of many conversations with my wife about our future."

Gerber joined KSAT in 2004 where he has worked as a Defenders team investigative reporter and in 2017 replaced Charles Gonzalez as weekend anchor. He also worked as a Sunday morning newscast anchor. 

The Miami University grad previously worked as a reporter/anchor for 13 Action News WTVG Toledo, Ohio and consumer/investigative reporter/fill-in anchor for WIBW 13 Topeka, Kansas.
