Reporter Homa Bash leaving NBC5 after short stay

It’s been quite a while -- a few months at least -- since an anchor or reporter has departed one of D-FW’s four major TV news providers.

NBC5 general assignment reporter Homa Bash has ended that drought. After joining the station in September of last year from WEWS-TV in Cleveland, she’s returning to that station, news director Mark Ginther confirmed Thursday.

In a later message to unclebarky.com, Bash also noted that her fiancé lives in Cleveland and “It makes life easier when you live in the same state when trying to plan a wedding.”

“It’s bittersweet,” Bash added, “because I’ve loved working for NBC5 and being so close to my family, but I also adore Cleveland.” Her NBC5 bio says that “Homa is happy to be closer to home and her huge family -- two loving parents, four brothers, three sisters-in-law and an adorable niece and nephew.”

Bash, who also has been a lively and frequent Tweeter, previously spent two years at WEWS and earlier worked at TV stations in Tulsa, Abilene and Bend, Oregon, where she got her start.

She has a Masters degree in journalism from Northwestern University and a Bachelors degree in journalism, Middle East studies and political science from the University of Arkansas.
