Fox4 Is Dropping Anchor Baron James? Ron Burgundy Says That Doesn't Make Any Sense.
From Baron James's autobiography on the KDFW-Channel 4 site: "I look forward to years of public service here in the Lone Star State and at FOX 4 to bring you the news stories that matter most to you --- especially good news!" But Uncle Barky comes bearing only bad and wholly inexplicable news today: The Fox affiliate has opted not to renew James's contract, and his last day co-anchoring the 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts with Clarice Tinsley will be January 17. Which makes no sense. At all.
As Ed notes, James was off the air during the summer following "surgery to remove a growth from his larynx"; he returned two months ago. I left a message on James's office voice mail; maybe he'll call back. I just hope Baron's got on his pink socks today.
