Several readers who have viewed the vintage WFAA8 promotional film below on this page have wondered about the current whereabouts of Doug Fox, Jane Jayroe (pictured in the film as one of the station's competitors) and Bill Ratliff. So here are some updates:

Doug Fox -- He worked at WFAA8 for 29 years, in large part as a political reporter, before leaving the station in 2003. He's now a contributing producer/reporter for World Vision Update, which airs on various radio stations. Former WFAA8 religion reporter Peggy Wehmeyer also works for WVU as a host and managing editor.

The parent company, World Vision, Inc., is based in Washington state. It's described as a "Christian relief and development organization."

Jane Jayroe -- The former Miss America 1967 co-anchored at KXAS-TV (Channel 5) from 1980-84. She now lives in Oklahoma City with her husband, Gerald Gamble. Jayroe was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2007.

Bill Ratliff -- The former PM Magazine co-host left WFAA8 in 1982 to join NBC station WFLA-TV in Tampa. He's been there ever since and currently anchors News Channel 8 Today and The News Channel 8 Midday Report.
