Homa Bash joins NBC5 reporting staff


@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Distinctively named Homa Bash is leaving the city of champions (well, champion) to join Fort Worth-based NBC5 as a reporter.

She’s scheduled to arrive in September from Cleveland’s WEWS-TV, where she spent two years.

“After so long, I’ll finally be close to home and my family -- and isn’t that what it’s all about?” Bash says on her Facebook page. “Please don’t burn my jerseys.”

She grew up in Oklahoma and has a brother in Dallas and another brother in Houston.

Cleveland.com reported her departure earlier Tuesday, although Bash first announced her hiring by NBC5 in a July 22nd Facebook page entry. She also posted the news on her Twitter account. A Facebook respondent tells her, “If you see Johnny Manziel down there in the Lone Star state, tell him we don’t miss him up here.”

Before joining Cleveland’s WEWS, Bash worked at TV stations in Tulsa and Abilene.
