Tegna’s WFAA has dipped into the NFL Network roster for its empty morning anchor slot.
NFL Network host and anchor Marc Istook got the nod from the Dallas station.
“Marc is a Fort Worth native,” said executive news director Carolyn Mungo. “He graduated from Southwest High School, as well as TCU, and knows the territory well with a great combination of journalism skills, personality and attitude. He is a proud native North Texan and will walk in ready to get reacquainted with his neighbors.”
He will join the Daybreak team of co-anchor Kara Sewell, meteorologist Greg Fields and traffic anchor Demetria Obilor.
Istook will replace morning anchor Ron Corning who left the station this spring after eight years.
He began his career at in Dennison, Texas, anchoring sports and news.
In 2001, he moved to Los Angeles where he has covered news, technology and sports for BBC, ABC.com, Yahoo and other media outlets.
He starts sometime this summer.
