And to all a good night: unclebarky.com's annual list of D-FW's TV newsroom exits

It was pretty tame this time around, with 13 on-camera departures from D-FW’s television newsrooms compared to 23 in 2016. But we once again have them all listed alphabetically, including info on where they are now. It’s all on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Plus, Fox is rolling out two new series at the start of 2018.

Our review of LA to Vegas is here. And our take on 9-1-1 is right here.

Christmas merry-go-round -- 2017


Merry Christmas to one and all from unclebarky.com world headquarters in Garland, TX. We again tag-teamed this year. My wife did the tree and your friendly content provider unpacked and arranged the Santas.

We both hope you’ll have a night and day of peace and joy at the close of a very eventful year. And as an extra added attraction, the finale of Uncle Barky’s Countdown to Christmas offers a double feature that you can watch right here.

Revisiting the site and sounds of Perry Como's last ABC Christmas special

They didn’t come any nicer than Perry Como, whose last Christmas special for ABC (in 1986) originated from San Antonio.

Your friendly content provider was there for a full day of taping, plus an interview with Como. It’s always been one of my favorite stories and experiences -- and you can revisit it if you’d like on our Back Channels page.

Plus, NBC5 hires a new reporter, Jack Highberger, from Minneapolis’ Fox-owned station.

A pair of Uncle Barky’s Countdown to Christmas videos are also in our mix. You can find them here and here.

Also, another edition of the D-FW Nielsen ratings “snapshot” shows that even a big lemon served up by Thursday Night Football can draw a big enough crowd to outpoint the night’s competing programs.

Also, as previously posted, Dallas-based TEGNA8 has hired a new sports reporter and fill-in anchor. Details are right here.
