Straight from the pages of mega-agent Rick Gevers, KPRC 2 news director Rick McFarland is reportedly stepping down to assistant news director. Assistant ND is the job McFarland held for 10 years until he was upped to news director in 2009. According to his online bio, McFarland started at the station in June 1980 in the sports department and has moved up through the years.
That means there is an opening for the KPRC 2 news director position according to Gevers, so that means no one has been appointed to that gig just yet. I've only communicated with McFarland once, he seemed like a really nice guy.
This makes me wonder what happened to current assistant news director Kathy Williams? She landed at KPRC 2 after leaving KRIV 26 as news director in 2009.
