Teresa Woodard, who quickly established herself as one of WFAA8’s standout reporters after joining the station in March 2012, will be leaving to take a public relations position with an educational software company.

In an email to WFAA8 staffers obtained by unclebarky.com, news director Carolyn Mungo said that Woodard’s last day will be August 22nd.

Mungo praised Woodard as “one of the best storytellers in the business.”

“It’s a loss for us and for our viewers,” she added. “Her stories informed, inspired, and on so many occasions, moved us to tears. All signs of a great storyteller.”

Woodard, a Dallas native and Texas A&M grad, joined WFAA8 from Fox affiliate KTVI-TV in St. Louis, where she had worked since 2005.

Numerous WFAA8 reporters have quit the station in recent year to take public relations posts. They include Brad Watson, Craig Civale, Chris Hawes, Steve Stoler, Cynthia Vega and Casey Norton.
