Byron Harris, dean of D-FW's TV investigators, talks about why it's time for him to go

WFAA-TV on Friday announced the impending retirement of investigative reporter Byron Harris, who joined the Dallas-based station in 1974 and has won all of the industry’s most prestigious national awards at least twice. On Monday morning, he talked to unclebarky.com about exiting on Oct. 9th, the day of his 69th birthday. Our story is on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Plus, the Dallas Cowboys were super-boring in Sunday night’s pre-season loss to San Francisco while the Texas Rangers continued their rather amazing drive for a post-season spot. The ratings breakdowns also are on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page. Alas, the only real suspense is: How badly did the Cowboys’ pretend game clobber the Rangers’ very meaningful one?

Also, Fort Worth-based NBC5 has named Mark Ginther as its new vice president of news. He succeeds Susan Tully. More details are right here.
