Question for everyone here: I've read numerous stories on GMs being hostile to employees of news stations over the years, but the question is Fox 26 GM D'Art Bebel the most hostile & difficult person to work with? A.) YES B.) NO C.) TBD
It looks like another one at Fox 26 is leaving for greener pastures. Reporter and fill-in anchor Ned Hibberd is leaving for Fox owned stations WJZY-WMYT in Charlotte, North Carolina reported Fox 26 KRIV reporter Isiah "The Factor" Carey aka The Insite. Hibberd will be the assistant news director for the newly purchased FOX duopoly. Hibberd follows former FOX 26 executive producer Geoffrey Roth, who became VP of local content (aka news director) there last summer. "Ned has been an integral part of our news team over the last 23 years," said Fox 26 KRIV VP & General Manager D'Artagnan Bebel in a statement released to mikemcguff.com in an email. "He is an accomplished storyteller, whose keen insight into emerging technologies and unique news style will be missed. We wish him well in his new position." His departure will be a big blow to the station since he's been at KRIV since 1988. Hibberd started at Fox Houston as an intern in 1988 and worked his way up. According to his bio, he's worked as a production crew member, assignments editor, associate producer, investigative reporter, fill-in anchor and general assignments reporter. Hibberd leaves KRIV on November 24th and begins work in Charlotte on December 2nd. Congrats to Ned and his wife, Danielle and their 3 sons. Mike McGuff and The Insite both reported this story: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2013/11/ned-hibberd-leaves-fox-26-wjzy-wmyt-fox-charlotte,html http://www.isiahfactor.com/2013/11/12/ned-hibberd-heads-to-charlotte/ Any reaction to Hibberd leaving Fox 26 ?
Folks, take a look at this article from the Houston Chronicle. It appears Rita Garcia will be staying in the weekday morning newscasts for Fox 26, permanently taking over the co-anchor spot leftover from the departure of Natalie Bomke, who left the station to move back to her home state of Illinois, working for Fox affiliate, WFLD-TV Fox 32. Kristine Galvan will assume the weekend evening anchor duties for Fox 26 until a permanent replacement is named. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/tv/article/Rita-Garcia-named-Channel-26-morning-co-anchor-501084.php Fox 26 has recently become a revolving door of talented folks (including some who've been there for almost 30 years) leaving for greener pastures. Ned Hibberd-now in Charlotte, NC Natalie Bomke-now at WFLD-TV, Fox 32 Chicago Jan Jeffcoat-now at WSUA-TV Washington, DC Sibilia Vargas-recently back in her home state of NY State Nancy Zambrano-lasted a few months before heading back to Austin I'm wondering who else is next to leave Fox 26, any takers ?
