Texas #TVnews and radio job moves August 2018

Better late than never...


DALLAS - FOR WORTH

After 42-and-a-half years in television news — seven-and-half-years at WOWT-TV in Omaha, and nearly 35 here at WFAA – WFAA anchor John McCaa intends to retire in March of 2019.

Former WFAA 8 investigative reporter Brett Shipp is hoping to reinvent his wheelhouse after leaving the Dallas-based station late last year to run unsuccessfully for Congress.

WFAA 8 Sports broadcaster Dale Hansen, ‘a fat, white guy in a deep red state,’ is an unlikely liberal hero.

After joining Dallas-based Fox4 in June to replace Jenny Anchondo as the weekend Good Day anchor, Hanna Battah has been bumped up to weekday editions of the show.

It’s been an up and down ride for Laurie Passman, who was named D-FW-based CBS11 KTVT’s vice president and news director after being bypassed for that position in January 2017.

HOUSTON

Former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson, a co-host of KILT's (610 AM) afternoon drive time sports talk program since 2014, departed the station.
