Michael Garfield joins WFAA 8 Dallas as tech contributor

High Tech Texan Michael Garfield joins WFAA 8 Dallas-Fort Worth as 4pm tech contributor

Michael Garfield, the High Tech Texan, is spreading his tech media empire faster than Apple is selling the new iPhone 5c (OK, maybe not that fast).

Garfield is joining Belo Dallas Station WFAA 8 as its new 4pm newscast tech contributor.

“I grew up in Dallas and watched most everything on Channel 8,” Garfield said. “From ‘Bowling for Dollars’ with Verne Lundquist to Mr. Peppermint, I watched hours upon hours of programming. I credit both my parents along with (longtime WFAA anchors) Tracy Rowlett and Iola Johnson as raising me and creating a passion for a career in media and broadcasting.”

This is in addition to his tech reports on NewsRadio 1080 KRLD in DFW. But don't worry, Garfield isn't leaving Houston for North Texas. He's remaining in Houston and will continue to broadcast on 950 KPRC seven days a week. Yes, that's right, every single day.

Garfield is still making news in his adopted Bayou City. The Chronicle's Ken "Behind the Pay Wall" Hoffman just wrote about Garfield's big time national exposure in the Spray & Forget commercials. It's made Garf a big hit with the ladies...at least in the TV ad! However, this time he doesn't have to be killed by James Franco to go nationwide.

Both Garf's first WFAA 8 report and his Spary & Forget commercial are embedded below.

  1. Good for him. Probably the nicest guy in media. And the best "personality."
