KTRK 13's Dave Ward falls, will be off news desk

KTRK 13 anchor Gina Gaston ended Monday night's 6pm newscast with a note about Dave Ward.

 It turned out when I blogged how KTRK 13 moves anchors to newsroom for a night over the weekend, it was not technical issues that caused the location switch, but an accident. Reader comments came in since to that post talking about the incident.

Gaston said the number 13 is usually lucky for KTRK 13, but not in this case:

Eyewitness News anchor Dave Ward took a little fall Friday night just minutes before the newscast. Tonight he tells us he's already out of bed and the doctors have him walking around.

Dave plans on getting back in his chair on the news desk as soon as he gets the medical OK, which could be no more than a few weeks.

If you would like to send Dave a get well message, add your comments below. He would love to hear from you. READ MORE

Glad he is recovering.
