Iconic KTRK abc13 anchor Dave Ward returns to 6pm broadcast after fall earlier this year

Dave Ward is back on the KTRK abc13 6pm news where he belongs.

The legendary anchor returns after having to be hospitalized from a fall at the Disney/ABC Television Group station earlier this year. As a result he had to recover from a hairline type fracture on his pelvic bone.

"I'll be back in time for the rodeo parade come hell or high water," Ward told at the time.

He was correct. Ward did make an appearance during this year's rodeo parade broadcast, but it was from a live shot in his home.

In January 2012, Ward fell at the station and made it back in time for that year's rodeo parade.

He's Back!
He's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Great news tonight at 6 on #abc13

Hello, friends. You have no idea how good it is to be back here at my desk at ch. 13. As you may know, I've been out...

  1. Instead of being back for the rodeo, he needs to ride off into the sunset. Don't ruin a great career with a failure to see when it's time to retire.

    1. The only problem, the 10pm newscast they took Ward off is being killed by channel 2 in the ratings. The 6pm newscast where he remains is winning. Go figure.

  2. At least Marvin Zindler died on the job!

  3. I am glad to see him back. He is one of the most respected and most liked Houston news anchors.
