Publisher's Summary

In Good Evening, Friends, Houston's iconic Eyewitness News anchor Dave Ward shares his untold personal and professional stories. Known as “the most trusted voice in Houston”, Ward first joined ABC's KTRK-Channel 13 in 1966 and today hosts Dave Ward's Houston on ABC13. His journey from a simple life as the son of an East Texas pastor to become a welcome daily presence in the homes of millions of Houstonians unfolds as if it were preordained. As his early love of music and passion for technological innovation combined with his skill for distilling a story to its essence, it became apparent that Ward not only had a gift as a broadcaster but also a talent for riding the waves of change in the industry and emerging ever more beloved by his audience. 

In this audiobook, Ward details a remarkable 60-year career as a newsman that began before the JFK assassination. He takes readers behind the scenes of America's most successful local news team - revealing his personal history with Marvin Zindler, chronicling the growth and development of the US space program, and providing fascinating play-by-play about life on the road with the Houston Oilers in the “Luv Ya Blue” era. Additionally, Ward details his instrumental role in establishing Houston Crime Stoppers, the city's top non-profit dedicated to public safety, and he opens up about his personal struggles and dramatic brushes with death. 

Whether he was covering wars in Vietnam and the Middle East or providing accurate and in-depth coverage of presidential elections and historic natural disasters, Ward has always provided his audience with a clear and unbiased understanding of the news. Now, this long-awaited book captures the spirit of Houston as it presents a candid look at the man who has faithfully investigated its problems and broadcast its stories through almost 70 years of constant change.
