When KTRK Anchor Dave Ward wigned off from the station after 50+ years, many thought there was no way he could stay away.
And those people were right.
The ABC O&O announced that starting in September they will launch Dave Ward's Houston, a multi-platform series exploring the people, places and events that make this Houston so special.
Ward was the longest-serving news anchor at a single television station, anchoring the news for more than 50 years at KTRK.
"I could not be happier to have this unique opportunity to reconnect with my viewers and KTRK colleagues as we explore the history of what I consider to be the greatest city in the world and connect with a new generation of viewers," he said.
KTRK-TV President and General Manager Henry Florsheim says he is thrilled the station found a way for Dave to remain a part of the KTRK-TV family.
"We all look forward to his unique storytelling and look at our city," Florsheim said.
