KFOX General Manager John Witte Retires

After 11 years as general manager of KFOX, John Witte retired from the El Paso Fox affiliate on Friday, according to the El Paso Times.

Witte has worked at KFOX since 1996. His retirement comes months before the arrival of his first grandchild. “I am looking forward to that,” Witte told the El Paso Times. “My grandchild will be here in August. But this has been difficult. This has been my family for 18 years.”

KFOX is being acquired by Sinclair Broadcast Group. News director Elizabeth O’Hara said a new general manager has yet to be named.

Ric Dupont Resigns From KFOX After Public Intoxication Arrest

Ric Dupont has resigned from KFOX in El Paso after being arrested on suspicion of public intoxication last month, according to the El Paso Times.

“He resigned this morning,” news director Elizabeth O’Hara said Wednesday.

Dupont was arrested on October 30 at El Paso International Airport. He was held at the police airport on suspicion of being intoxicated and released to a friend without being charged or booked. A police spokesperson told the El Paso Times that Dupont became “uncooperative with officers at one point due to his intoxication.”

Dupont, who joined KFOX’s East Side Bureau  in 2011, was arrested on suspicion of DUI last December. That case is still pending in court.
