Ty Treadway Out at WFAA After Just 2 Months

Ty Treadway has left WFAA after just two months as co-host of “Good Morning Texas,” the ABC-affiliate’s morning talk show.

“Ty started with us in early January and worked for a couple months on ‘GMT,’” executive producer Dave Muscari told Dallas media blogger Ed Bark. “His last day at WFAA was Thursday, March 1. We appreciate all of his work and wish him well.”

Treadway is a former actor who has appeared on the daytime soap opera “One Life to Live.” Before joining WFAA earlier this year, he served as a host of shows such as “American Idol Extra” and “SoapTalk.”

Muscari did not comment on whether the station is seeking a new co-host for Amy Vanderoef.
