  1. Ladies & Gentlemen.... guess who's BACK BABY: the legendary Ch. 13-ista Dave Ward.... He's returning to the ABC O&O Station & launching a new segment with Ch. 13 called "Dave Ward's Houston", the weekly feature, which launches in September, will be taking a look back each week at a topic in Bayou City history that even natives like myself might not be familiar with. "I have thought about doing this for quite some time & mainly because there are whole generations of young people in Houston who aren't aware of some of the history of this great city & how we got here & how we grew & what the future looks like," Ward told mikemcguff.com. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2018/08/dave-wards-houston-to-launch-on-abc13.html http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2018/08/abc13-and-anchor-emeritus-dave-ward.html Please comment & give your thoughts on Ward's new segment!
