Primary Anchor

Primary Anchor (5/8)



  1. Tim Ryan, the longtime Good Day co-anchor at KDFW, has announced his retirement from the station after 33 years. His last day will be August 26. https://www.fox4news.com/good-day/longtime-fox-4-anchor-tim-ryan-announces-retirement
  2. Dan, just wondering, which KDFW theme did you do, and when?
  3. Dan True, who spent many years as a weatherman at KFDA, has died. He was 97. https://www.newschannel10.com/2022/03/17/local-weather-legend-dan-true-dies-peacefully-surrounded-by-family/ https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/easternnewmexiconews/name/dan-true-obituary?id=33662672
  4. I guess since Weigel has a DFW presence (KAZD), and enough channel room (4 right now), they'll probably have Story TV there. Will be good to have a docu-series choice without a lot of the reality fluff.
  5. https://www.rabbitears.info/search.php?request=network_search&network=Me-TV+Plus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MeTV So far, these is the only MeTV+ lists I've found.
  6. Finally an end to the dueling "weather experts" thing between KTVT ("Texas weather experts") and KXAS ("weather experts").
  7. KDFW is actually across the street from 1 of 2 DART downtown transit centers, but is at least 4 blocks from the Greyhound station. For now.
  8. Walt Howard's goodbye, introduction of his replacement, and an on-set reception which included the naming of KFDA's news studio as the "Walt Howard Studio". https://www.newschannel10.com/video/2022/01/14/walt-howard-final-show-newschannel/
  9. Looks like a big anniversary with time to fill. Since Matt went non-grata, and he was one of the longest-running hosts/anchors, the editors and producers will have to likely do a lot of editing. Besides Matt, it's pretty certain we won't see Tamron, Ann, or Megan Kelly. It would be nice to see Barbara again, if she were well and up and around, as she is really the last of the long-time anchors from the earlier years. As for those able to do in-person segments and distant interviews, we still have Bryant, Jane, Katie, Meredith, Deborah, and Kathie Lee. Hoda is back but Savannah has been distant for now, and they *still* have Dylan on maternity leave. Except for most-recent segments and clips, I guess they can trot out things that have been seen in previous anniversaries and other clip segments. In any event, it should be interesting to see what they do.
  10. After over 40 years anchoring and reporting at KFDA, Walt Howard has announced he will call it a day. https://www.newschannel10.com/2022/01/11/tx-panhandle-journalism-icon-walt-howard-retires-after-more-than-40-years-newschannel-10
  11. I saw a FB post in the comments after one of the WFAA anchors (I think it was Cynthia's) brought up the Victory Park departure/upcoming Young St. renovation. It was from Lauren Przybyl (KDFW Good Day co-anchor): "Jealous!" Looks like somebody might be longing for a new news set or redone station (?)....
  12. The now-15-year-old news set got a duratrans change. No more blue-gold globe or weird-looking Dallas skyline in the background. The last paragraph could be the most interesting in the article, though: Insiders note that a new facility project, similar to the redevelopment of Fox 5 Washington, is eventually expected at the station, which could also be a driving point behind the lack of a new set. A facility change could be really big for KDFW, depending on how and where it goes. It would be weird to see the station anywhere but its longtime 400 N. Griffin address downtown. https://www.newscaststudio.com/2021/12/01/kdfw-new-duratran/
  13. Just quick-glancing at the Rabbit Ears list, I would guess a new LP would have to crank up to return Circle to the market. The others already there seem to be set with ownership and subchannels/channel line-ups. ETA::: Didn't catch that both KWKB and KPXR have Laff. I guess, barring some kind of contractual situation, KWKB could replace its Laff subchannel with Circle.
  14. In a bit of where-are-they-now, veteran TV anchor Mike Landess (previously in Denver TV as well as KYTX in Tyler) has landed the news director position at a new public radio station in Tyler. (More in the Radio section link below.) https://forums.tvnewstalk.net/topic/18496-tyler-tx-new-public-radio-station/
  15. KVUT 99.7 FM launched earlier this week as a new NPR affiliate for east Texas. It is based at the University of Texas at Tyler. The station's news director is Mike Landess, who has previously anchored at news stations in Denver, as well as KYTX in Tyler. KVUT-FM will carry NPR programming for those usually accustomed to having to tune to stations in Dallas or Shreveport. In the evenings, a mix of standards and jazz music will be played. https://www.kltv.com/2021/09/16/ut-tyler-radio-kvut-brings-public-radio-programming-east-texas/
