In an email to WFAA8 staffers obtained by unclebarky.com, news director Carolyn Mungo said that Woodard’s last day will be August 22nd. Mungo praised Woodard as “one of the best storytellers in the business.”
“It’s a loss for us and for our viewers,” she added. “Her stories informed, inspired, and on so many occasions, moved us to tears. All signs of a great storyteller.” Woodard, a Dallas native and Texas A&M grad, joined WFAA8 from Fox affiliate KTVI-TV in St. Louis, where she had worked since 2005.
