UPDATE NOVEMBER 10, 2014
Dave Ward to step down from KTRK ABC13's 10pm news
Dave Ward to start 2015 with reduced workload
Video is now embedded above.
It's pretty clear that KTRK abc13 has had some technical issues lately.
In fact, channel 13 viewers have been sending me phone photos taken from TV screens showing problems like misspellings as of late too. I'm sure if you scrutinize my blog, you'll find I don't much room to point
The viewer said there was a problem during the weather segment, wrong video at other times, wrong lottery numbers (I do not have this confirmed).
There is a maxim in the broadcast biz that you do not point out errors. However, I applaud Ward for apologizing if the problems keep adding up like the national debt. At a point, you don't want to insult the audience's intelligence and act like nothing is wrong.
I'm always here if you see anything else like this. Email me.
Found out there was some talk on Twitter about that night's newscast too.
