Carrie McClure vacating Good Morning Texas after four-year tour

Carrie McClure, a co-host and correspondent for TEGNA8’s homegrown Good Morning Texas, says she’ll be leaving the program at the end of April.

“But as they always say, family comes first,” McClure says on her Facebook page. “I’ve always been very candid about the fact that this job was to serve a purpose. And it has. I am now able to return where I was before -- at home, with my sweet boys and ever-supportive husband.” The couple has three sons.

McClure joined GMT, an infotainment/infomercial program airing at 9 a.m. weekdays, in April 2012 from Denver’s KUSA-TV, where she was a weekend evening news anchor. As McClure notes, she initially interviewed with TEGNA8’s news department before being asked to consider joining GMT. “It was like the best thing ever had just fallen into my lap!” McClure recalls.

In the February “sweeps” ratings period, GMT ran fourth in its time slot behind Fox4’s syndicated Kelly & Michael, the third hour of NBC’s Today and double episodes of CBS’ Let’s Make a Deal. Portions of GMT accommodate five-minute pre-paid segments from companies pitching their products.

Mike Castellucci and former NBC5 anchor Jane McGarry continue as the principal hosts of GMT.
