KRLD-TV News personalities from the 1960's:
These ten pictures were little 2½-by-3½-inch prints, in an
envelope mixed in with the negatives. When you "click to enlarge" these pictures, they will
pop up on your computer screen about five or six times their original size. My hope is that the
families of these men (and everyone pictured on the rest of these pages) will eventually stumble
across this web page and print out these long-lost photos.
(1) George Phenix
(2) Frank Glieber
(3) Bill Ceverha
(4) Dick Wheeler
(5) Warren Fulks
(6) Dan Garza
(7) Dean Angel
(8) Jim Underwood
(9) Joe Scott
(10) Sandy Sanderson
Thanks to David Young for identifying Bill Ceverha, Dick Wheeler and Warren Fulks, and tentatively identifying
#10 as Sandy Sanderson.
Thanks also to Jim English for identifying Jim Underwood and Joe Scott. He also agrees
that #10 is probably Sandy Sanderson.
And this just in... Walter Evans, who retired many years ago from KDFW-TV, confirms
that #10 is definitely Sandy Sanderson. He also identified #7 as George
Runge [later corrected to Dean Angel - see below] and photographer
Dan Garza. I spoke with Walter on the phone this afternoon and he sounds just like he
did 20 years ago.
David Young says there is a slight chance that photo #1 is that of "Jerome Davis, former
weekend anchorman circa 1968." (See update below.)
Bill Ceverha sent a message to say that #7 in the photo line-up above
is "not George Runge but Dean ________(?)"
There is an "off by one" error on my part, which I probably won't repair: The file names
for the ten photos are numbered zero through nine, but they are referred to as #1 through #10 in the
text. You probably haven't even noticed. If you did, I'm slightly embarrassed, but not
enough to fix the problem.
Coming soon: Pictures of Eddie Barker in the KRLD-TV newsroom. The negatives are in the mail,
on the way to Dig My Pics.
Walter Evans, upon seeing Bill Ceverha's correction of #7, now says, "Try Dean Angel
instead of Runge." So I'm saying it's a picture of Dean Angel until
someone insists otherwise.
Bob Huffaker writes to say, "All of your old KRLD head shots are correctly identified except #1, a
photo of George Phenix, who went on to found and publish Texas Weekly ." Thanks, Bob!
Notice the two gentlemen
in the lower right corner of this picture.
A few days ago, Fox 4's Richard Ray said the man on the left might be Bill Mercer. Lo and behold,
Mr. Mercer replied to my email and said, "Oh yeah... that's me and Jack Harrison (the
tall one)... we were quite young then." Mr. Harrison was (according to what I've found on the
internet) a KRLD-TV weather man and program director of KRLD radio.
David Stewart wrote and said, regarding Jack Harrison, "Among other jobs over the years, he was
the station voice in the seventies. He did the IDs, and sign on/sign off and
renewal announcements. I remember an on screen promo showing him
with a 'mini-cam' in 1976 or 1977."
Photographers and others
This is an early KRLD-TV mobile unit. That's the Dallas Times Herald
building in the background.
I heard a rumor at work recently that the man standing beside the mobile unit has been
identified as Roy Flynn, and not Clyde Rembert as previously speculated. The story
I heard was that Mr. Flynn was the Chief Engineer of KRLD-TV before Mr. Honeycutt. This
is a great surprise to me, since I had never heard of Mr. Flynn.
the next question is… who is the driver, and who are the cameramen?
The positive feedback about this web page continues to amaze me. David Young wrote to say, "I
might be able to ID one of the camera guys standing on top of the truck. The one on the left
holding the Bell & Howell "Filmo" 16mm camera could well be Roy Nichols. ... He served
as reporter, cameraman, TV anchorman, radio news announcer, and all-around nice guy."
Karen Morris identifies the man on the right (standing next to Roy Nichols) as her father, Harold L. Hunt,
who was a KRLD-TV photographer from sometime after World War II until "sometime in the early
sixties." Thanks, Karen!
Here is the KRLD-TV news team, out in the field.
This is a really good picture. If you're a JFK researcher or someone else with an
interest in the state of Dallas TV news in 1963, you may want to have a closer look, so
the large version is also
available. (2.48 Megabytes)
I believe that is a
1963 Texas license plate, which would be an indication of when this picture was taken. The shadows
under the cars are short, so I'd say it was June or July.
Eddie Barker in the KRLD-TV newsroom
This was back when the newsroom was in the basement of the "new" (1963) portion of the KRLD building.
And of course there were others in the newsroom. Notice the lack of video monitors, TV sets, and
of course, computers. Everything is so neat and tidy, you'd think they had invented the "paperless"
All the old telephones and
typewriters are in a scrap heap somewhere, but today those Western Union clocks are worth a few
hundred dollars apiece.
has identified a few of the people in this latest set of newsroom photos. In the foreground is
Bob White, reporter and anchor of Midnight News, and behind him is assignments editor Buster
On the right is Warren Fulks, 10 p.m.
Some of the pictures include Bill Ceverha. This is
a somewhat better picture of Mr. Ceverha than the one at the top of this page.
On the far left is Marilyn Scott.
Also off to the left is Travis Crow, a film
This is a photo from the KDFW-TV newsroom,
1973. Sources tell me that among those pictured here are Tom Overstreet, Carolyn Guunter, Henk DeWit,
Wayne Lindloff, Tom Wilson, John McLean, Linda Resnick, Bob Phillips, Jeff Rosser, Wayne Thomas,
Warren Culbertson, and Curtis Shelby.
