Jane McGarry Named Co-Host of ‘Good Morning Texas’ on WFAA

By Aneya Fernando 

Jane-McGarryJane McGarry, formerly of NBC-owned KXAS, has a new gig in town. McGarry has been named full-time co-host of “Good Morning Texas” on Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA.

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.
