Friday was reporter Jeff Smith‘s last day at Dallas-Fort Worth NBC-owned station KXAS.
“Jeff is making the move to Israel for a variety of reasons,” news director Mark Ginther told Dallas media blogger Ed Bark. “One of them is the dream of becoming a foreign correspondent. He’s a good, hard-working reporter. It’s a real loss for us, but I’m happy he’s pursuing his dream.”
“I’m making “Aliyah”–immigrating to Israel, and charting a new journey,” Smith tweeted. “Thanks for all your support, Texas!”
Today is my last day at @NBCDFW. I'm making "Aliyah"–immigrating to Israel, and charting a new journey. Thanks for all your support, Texas!
