KDAF Dallas ‘Transitioning’ Results In Layoffs

On Nov. 1, the Tribune-owned Dallas CW affil plans to launch a 9 p.m. newscast modeled after the station’s early morning, comedy-infused Eye Opener program, which also is being carried by several other Tribune-owned stations. On Monday, reporters Dawn Tongish and Charles Bassett were told they will not be part of the revamped newscast. The dismissals also included roughly a dozen off-camera personnel.
