Ken Hoffman reports that longtime KTRK-13 anchor Dave Ward isn’t quite ready to ride off (or rocket off, according to some accounts of his driving habits) into retired-anchor land just yet:
Scratch the retirement party for Houston’s longest-running anchorman, Dave Ward.
“When we drew up my current contract, I really thought that would be enough. But I still love what I’m doing. I’m not retiring. What would I do? I’d just rattle around doing nothing,” Ward said.
Ward said he is negotiating a two- or three-year extension to stay at Channel 13.
Ward recently celebrated his 40th anniversary anchoring the news in Houston — all at Channel 13.
As a Dave Ward fan, I’m happy to read this news.
