KXAS Makes Changes to Morning Newscast as Anchor Scott Friedman Returns to Investigative Reporting

Changes are coming to the morning newscast at KXAS, the NBC O&O in Dallas.

Scott Friedman, who currently anchors the newscast, is leaving the anchor desk to run the station’s newly-launched investigative team.

“I could not pass up the opportunity to be part of this new team,” Friedman said in a statement. The investigative reporting unit, which will be launched when it is fully staffed, will include a producer, researcher and photographer. Friedman will remain at the anchor desk alongside Deborah Ferguson until his replacement is named.

KXAS morning meteorologist Jennifer Lopez is leaving the station after four years. She will be replaced on an interim basis by Samantha Davies, who joined the station last year as meteorologist for the 4:30 a.m. newscast. Read more

Reporter Ben Russell Joins KXAS in Dallas

Ben Russell starts today as a general assignment reporter at KXAS, the NBC owned-and-operated station in Dallas-Fort Worth.

“When it comes to dynamic live shots, Ben had one of the best resume tapes I’ve seen in a while,” KXAS news director Susan Tully wrote in an email to staffers obtained by Uncle Barky’s Bytes. “He reports on the late news … and finds a way to make a story, even a ‘non-visual nothing is happening behind me story,’ become good live television.”

Russell joins KXAS from WHP, the CBS-affiliate in Harrisburg, PA. He has been a reporter there for five years.
