Talent Scout

I'm not just saying this because he gave me oral favors on last Thursday's WFAA-Channel 8 sportscast...OK, yeah, actually I am. But it doesn't change the fact that Dale Hansen has a keen eye for talent. Who else in this town, besides Mike Modano, could lose Gina Miller and immediately replace her with reporter Erin Hawksworth? Makes you wonder what kind of phase Dale was going through during the Gerry Oher era. --Richie Whitt
