Ron Corning Will Save WFAA's Morning Show?
"When I met these folks in Dallas, it was like somebody who decides they're going to be single but they just reluctantly go out on one date, and it's such a match," Corning tells FishbowlNY exclusively. "How could I not pursue this?"Corning, whose résumé includes stops at Extra, E! and ABC, starts this week. Delkus and Hansen are picking him up from the airport.
So after some cajoling, Corning accepted the co-anchor position for their morning newscast. Corning is proud to join the 'FAA news tradition (first TV station on the air to cover the President Kennedy assassination). But he'll need to help rebuild the ratings for the struggling morning show, a challenge Corning is more than up for.
"They're all about their legacy in journalism, and given that ... they are outside of that to create something that's a little more personality-driven, a little more casual, and a little more conversational," Corning says.
