  1. Others I forgot... The current studios/offices for KETK (as well as KFXK and KTPN) are located in a former men's clothing store. KYTX's studios/offices are located in a previous 4-screen movie theater. KLTV's current studio/office site used to be offices and downtown main branch of a former savings & loan.
  2. KLTV started out (and somehow remained there for many years) in an old (and rat-infested, per previous station employees) airplane hangar. KLMG (pre-KFXK) started out in a building that was previously an elementary school.
  3. Hansen's announcement also covered in D Magazine: https://www.dmagazine.com/frontburner/2021/05/dale-hansen-is-retiring/
  4. The 2nd image is way too CNN-ish. There really wasn't anything wrong with the previous L3s and graphics.
  5. Nexstar tried "easttexasmatters.com" at KETK and KFXK for a while, but thankfully (and quietly) brought on the easier ketk.com and previous fox51.com domains instead in recent months.
  6. Longtime north TX TV/radio personality and early 1980s-era KDFW meteorologist Jocelyn White has passed. She was 68. https://dallas.culturemap.com/news/society/04-18-21-jocelyn-white-designing-texas-equest/
  7. Thanks for the update, I didn't think to look at his Twitter.
  8. KFDA weatherman Cameron Venable has announced his departure from the station. He'll be moving to Wichita, where he will get in some storm chasing. He didn't mention what station he'd end up at. https://www.newschannel10.com/2021/04/09/good-news-meteorologist-cameron-venable-embarks-new-career-journey/
  9. On-air talent Blake Holland showed off a couple of pics of KLTV's recently-redone news set. https://www.facebook.com/100050928181159/posts/273253024382302/
  10. WFAA in Dallas still has one, on 8.2. It was partnered with AccuWeather until a few months ago. Even though "everyone has smartphones", IMO it's good to still have a TV option, if you don't have satellite/cable/streaming, and if you are watching in-between newscasts. KXAS also had one for a time, but it went away when WeatherPlus folded.
  11. Meanwhile, KYTX's previous chief, Joel Barnes, reported on his Twitter that he didn't stay at KYTX. He will now be chief meteorologist at WBBJ in Jackson, TN, and get started in the next couple of weeks there.
  12. He also co-anchored at KAMR for a time. Sad news.
  13. Friday, KDFW marked reporter Shaun Rabb's 30 years with the station. Not many clips of Rabb with his now-trademark fedora, but they didn't let him finish the interview without his signature closing ("Fox 4 ..... News"). Congrats Shaun on 30 years. https://www.fox4news.com/video/875235
  14. Sad news from Amarillo, as former longtime KAMR weatherman Roy McCoy has passed away. He was 87. https://www.myhighplains.com/news/local-news/roy-mccoy-amarillo-forecasting-pioneer-dies-at-87/
  15. Earlier today I saw an FB post by Ashley Claster. She is saying that the DFW area is getting a Spectrum News 1 channel starting the middle of next month. So far I'm only finding more social media about it from her, although she claims another reporter has been hired to work with her. Her FB post shows a picture of Ashley holding a Spectrum News microphone. Her Twitter post shows a pic of Ashley holding a Spectrum News 1 cap and standing in front of the downtown Dallas skyline. I'd like to hope this is true, but her posts seem to be the only thing I'm finding about a DFW news channel launc
