Nine months removed from co-anchoring WFAA8’s Daybreak, Ron Corning in a manner of speaking will be back among the living Saturday.

His return to TV screens is as co-host of the 31st annual Dallas Holiday Parade, which this year will air on CW33 from 10 a.m. to noon on Dec. 7th.

Corning will be joined by another ex-early morning personality, Jenny Anchondo, who co-anchored weekend editions of Fox4’s Good Day before having a short stay with the since canceled Morning Dose, which originated from CW33 studios.

This is CW33’s first year of presenting the parade, which used to air on WFAA8. Corning says he was never a participant, but came close with two stints on the station’s Big D NYE telecasts. He also co-hosted three editions of WFAA8’s Fourth of July fireworks specials.

Corning still lives in Dallas, and otherwise has been doing media training consulting and solo-hosting the Morning After podcast, on which he originally teamed with former Daybreak co-anchor Alexa Conomos.

Saturday’s parade telecast will also feature contributions from The Beat on 33 personalities J-Kruz and Jazzi Black, who will “interact with parade participants and parade goers,” according to a CW33 publicity release.

The Holiday Parade dates to 1988. CW33 has previous parade experience with telecasts this year of the Dallas Mavs St. Patrick’s Parade and the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade.
