Reporter Zahid Arab, who quickly became a solid presence on Fox4’s night shift, is leaving the station after just a two-year stay.
Arab told unclebarky.com that his last day will be Wednesday, April 20th. The station had offered him a new contract, but he has decided not to re-up, Arab said. He declined to comment further and is looking for new opportunities.
Arab joined Fox4 in April 2014 from NBC affiliate KING-TV in Seattle, where he had been a reporter since August 2012. The Arizona State University journalism and mass communications graduate also has worked at KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, KHNL/KFVE-TV in Honolulu and KCAU-TV in Sioux City, Iowa.
Arab is the 51st reporter or anchor to leave D-FW’s four major TV news providers since the start of 2014. He’s also the 10th to depart in this year alone.
Fox4 still has the least attrition from January 2014 through mid-April. The station has lost 9 on-camera personnel compared to 17 for CBS11. NBC5 and TEGNA8 each have had 12 exits during this period.
