Veteran Dallas reporter David Schechter has announced that he’s leaving Tegna’s ABC affiliate WFAA after 16 years.
“Hi, friends. After 16-years, it’s time to say goodbye to @WFAA,” he wrote on Twitter. “Shortly, I’ll tell you more about my next adventure in journalism. Until then, I’ll say … I love being a journalist and I especially loved being one at this legendary, vibrant TV station.”
Schechter is the reporter, host and co-producer of Verify Road Trip. According to his bio, “he takes real people on the road so they can ask their own question, see what he sees and reach their own conclusions. Verify was designed to provide viewers with an approach to storytelling that is significantly different from what local news has traditionally offered.”
