Veteran CW33 sports anchor-reporter Dave Crome, who joined the Dallas-based station in 1998, will be signing off this week.
Crome's last scheduled day is Wednesday, leaving CW33 without any remaining sports staffers after the earlier departures this year of Desmond Purnell and Candice Crawford, who is engaged to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. The entire full-time, on-camera news team, pictured on the station's website, will be down to 11 before the May "sweeps" ratings period starts Thursday.
Crome, a graduate of Southern Illinois University, previously worked for KDBC-TV in El Paso and KSHB-TV in Kansas City, according to his CW33 bio.
