Months After Pleading No Contest to DUI, Ex-KXAS Anchor Jane McGarry to Join WFAA

Eight months after resigning from KXAS in the wake of her DUI arrest, Jane McGarry is returning to Dallas television.

McGarry will contribute to the WFAA morning newscast, presenting a segment called “Starting Over with Jane McGarry.” The segments will air over a five-week period beginning January 24.

“I am excited to be working with the talented team at Good Morning Texas on this project,” McGarry said in a statement. “I hope the information will be helpful to the loyal viewers of North Texas, whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for more than two decades.”

McGarry spent 30 years as an anchor at KXAS, the NBC O&O in Dallas. She pleaded no contest to driving while intoxicated last year.
