After almost 35 years with Ch.8, John McCaa has decided that March 2019 will be his time to exit.
The DFW TV market doesn't have too many long-time anchors/reporters left: Clarice Tinsley is coming up on 40 years at Ch.4, David Finfrock is still at Ch.5 after 42-43 years, and McCaa's co-anchor Dale Hansen has signed a new 2-year deal after having been at Ch.8 since 1984 (as well as a few years at Ch.4 before that). Hansen has also turned 70 years old this year.
As more cost cuts and station sales take place in the industry, it is likely we will not see very many more remaining long-time veterans in local TV news.
