Return with us now to WFAA8's noon newscast, circa 1991, co-anchored by Quin Mathews and Lisa McRee, with Scott Sams at the weather maps.

Except that McRee seems to have channeled Princess Leia with a 'do that now looks like a don't but probably will be back in style by 2025.

Before checking the video, here's where they are now:

***Mathews, who also anchored at KDFW-TV (Ch. 4) and KDAF-TV (Ch. 33), formed Dallas-based Quin Mathews Films in the 1990s. He also is co-founder of WRR radio's (101.1 FM) "Arts Matters" series, which dates to 1988.

***McRee most recently hosted and reported for California Connected, which aired on the state's PBS radio stations from 2004-'07, when lack of funding ended the program. She also co-hosted ABC's Good Morning America from 1997-99 after Joan Lunden left.

***Sams of course is co-anchoring CBS11's early morning newscast with Ginger Allen. He joined the D-FW station in April 2007 after a sojurn at Sherman-Denison's KTEN-TV.
