McGarry has been contributing to the 9:00 a.m. weekday show since 2013, beginning with her “Starting Over with Jane McGarry” segments, and more recently with a series of “Texas Legends” segments.
McGarry spent 30 years as an anchor at KXAS, until she resigned in 2012 in the wake of a DUI arrest.
McGarry told Uncle Barky’s Bytes she’d be teaming up with co-anchor Mike Castellucci on the lifestyle and entertainment show.
“They knew I was very interested in being a part of the team,” McGarry told Ed Bark. “I just like the show. It’s really a lot of fun.”
McGarry declined to elaborate on her time (and troubles) at KXAS, simply telling Bark:
“Honestly, I have enjoyed every single thing I have done in television news. And this seems like the right fit for this phase of my life.”
McGarry began her new role on Monday.
