Press Club of Dallas feting D-FW's unprecedented five women news directors

Presumably appearing together for the first time, D-FW's five women news directors will be honored by the Press Club of Dallas at an event headlined "Breaking News and Ceilings --A First For Journalism in Dallas-Fort Worth."

The Oct. 29th gathering will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas in Las Colinas.

Scheduled to attend are Fox4 news director Robin Whitmeyer, NBC5 news director Susan Tully, WFAA8 news director Carolyn Mungo, CBS11 news director Adrienne Roark and CW33 news director Larissa Hall.

Just a few days after the event, however, Hall may be presiding over a 9 p.m. comedy news presentation modeled after the station's early morning Eye Opener program. The new program, with a working title of Night Cap, is scheduled to debut on Nov. 1st.

"No television market in the United States, much a less a top five market such as D-FW, has achieved this feat," a Press Club publicity release says of the quintet of women news directors.
