    So weird that in all of their 14 years, they've never had midday news on KYTX. They've dubbed it The Noon Show.

    So strange how they and the Dallas Morning News treat him. It's almost as if the DMN thought he'd just dry up and blow away when they showed him the door years ago. The other DFW stations don't seem to mind Uncle Barky that much. And stupid, since he can get the information elsewhere that they think they are blocking from him.

    It reminds me of hearing how Tracy Rowlett was excluded from the framed pictures of past/present on-air talent in the lobby of WFAA. Very parched-earth, very very sour grapes.

    I only remember Rowlett from KTVT. One of the best. It's a shame how WFAA did him.

    Meanwhile, down the dial..... 58 years ago today, Dallas' PBS station, KERA, signed on.
    https://www.facebook.com/DallasHistoricalSociety/posts/1373486036121088:0

    It wasn't until 1974 that they would be able to broadcast in color. But a first came along the following year, as KERA was the first US station to air an episode of the Brit-com Monty Python's Flying Circus. All the members of MP made an appearance during a 1975 pledge drive. KERA has been airing Brit-coms and dramas ever since.

    Hey everybody, did anybody watched the final NewsFix in Dallas and Houston? My Morning Dose on CW South Florida will be replaced with Live PD. But what will replace the NewsFix slot at 9pm central?

    Update: he’s unblocked. May have been a mistake from the social media guy.

    Given how much WUAB has been treated as a doormat under Raycom, this is a very pleasant surprise. I didn't expect any acknowledgement of their 50th anniversary.

    Of course Ramona Robinson returned to 19/43 in 2012, Jack Marshall retired not long ago after a stint at WEWS, Sally Bernier does holiday relief duties at WJW alongside her husband Andre, Jeff Phelps is at WKRK 92.3 The Fan and Fox Sports Ohio, Ron Jantz left the business to work and teach at Lorain County Community College, Dan Deely is at WNWV The Wave, and RIP Gib Shanley.

    Bob Hetherington was WUAB's first anchor when the 10:00 News started is now in real estate in Columbus.

    I gotta say, that's kind of...a petty thing to say. None of those things should matter.

    What does being a Vikings fan have to do with anything?

    Unfortunately, it appears KDAF is giving up on news. Just checked their schedule and they replaced Newsfix with a double run of Daily Mail TV.

    KDFW is now the sole provider of 9pm news in Dallas.
