5.0 out of 5 starsHouston's TV News Anchor
Reviewed in the United States on September 28, 2019
If you have lived in Houston or grown up here as I have then Good Evening Friends is a must read. Also, if you want to see TV journalism done right read this book. For me Dave Ward's book brought back so many memories of living through the 60's through today. Finally in full disclosure, I have watched KTRK Channel 13 news since I was a kid. I am a Dave Ward fan.
As a teen in the Beaumont area I stumbled upon Channel 13 one clear night when the reception was especially good, and I was hooked. I would watch whenever the TV would pick it up, and Dave Ward, Ed Brandon, Marvin Zindler and Bob Allen became almost like family to me. Reading this book brought back so many good memories for me. I have admired the professionalism of Channel 13 for many years. Thanks, Dave, for the trip down memory lane.
Wow, what a life Dave Ward has had. Although I only spent a short time in Houston, his stories - my gosh - this man has had a front row seat to some of the most incredible events in not only Houston's but also our nation's history. He's witty, charming, humble and the book is extremely well-written with lots of archival photos. This is a great read and I highly recommend it!
