New Community Media Resource
They are among the most iconic names of DFW TV news: Tracy Rowlett, Troy Dungan, Iola (Eye-Oh-la) Johnson, Scott Murray, Gary Cogill, Robert Riggs, Phyllis Watson and Jeff Brady.
Starting October 1st, they will lead a team of veteran journalists united in a new one-hour morning talk show on KTXD-TV Channel 47 called "The Texas Daily."
The idea is to produce a smart news program with familiar faces who can put the news headlines in perspective and offer opinions for the Baby Boomer generation, an over-40 audience that's tired of the wrecks, rain and robberies covered by most local newscasts.
For the first time, we'll have a conversation with commentary about what's happening in North Texas, and what matters.
Jeff Brady will host the program weekday mornings from 8 - 9am. More than a dozen other journalists will join him on a rotating basis in the KTXD studio (in Addison) to provide opinion and perspective.
So tune in to 'The Texas Daily' on Channel 47 - starting Monday October 1st at 8am!
