I saw that. I always wondered why he left the DFW market - perhaps it was a bit too competitive with aces like David and Troy. I wonder if this was voluntary or due to budgets and the station trying to save money. We’ll probably never know but the skeptic in me bets he wasn’t planning to retire any time soon until he was called into the office for a little talk...

Wasn't it his wife that had the medical issue, then he ended up with one, as well?

In an interview of Frank Billingsley by Ken Hoffmann that I read this week, Frank said that he and Tim were up for the same Chief job at KDFW and that they were offering more money than KPRC was, but he decided to stay in Houston and Tim took the KDFW job.

Would it be accurate that among meteorologists that constant 'hot 'n humid' forecasts can get old?

It'll be interesting to see who gets that spot. We have a bumper crop of qualified TV mets here, but I'm not sure if the network is looking within their affiliates or not. Maybe a couple of our mets here can give some insight....please?

Pouring in NW Harris County after a lot of thunder. Didn't think we'd get much of anything.
