Woodard bounces back

Former TEGNA8 reporter Teresa Woodard is current again.

She rejoined the Dallas-based ABC affiliate on Monday, March 12th after leaving in August 2014 to become PR/Communications Manager for Istation, an educational software company.

“Very excited to return to storytelling. It’s truly my passion,” Woodard replied to unclebarky.com Tuesday while your friendly content provider was still away.

Earlier in the week, Woodard tweeted that she’d “discovered a lot about myself in the last few years as I gave PR & media relations a try. The number one thing I learned is -- journalism is in my blood.”

Woodard’s first tour at TEGNA8 began in March 2012, lasting two and a half years. At the time, news director Carolyn Mungo praised her as “one of the best storytellers in the business” after hiring Woodard from Fox affiliate KTVI-TV in St. Louis.

Her 2014 departure coincided with a wave of seasoned repairers who left TEGNA8 to take public relations positions. They included Brad Watson, Craig Civale, Chris Hawes, Steve Stoler, Cynthia Vega and Casey Norton. Those six remain in the PR world.
