WFAA-TV Names Chris Tynan Huston Senior Producer Of Good Morning Texas
DALLAS -- Chris Tynan Huston has been named senior producer of Good Morning Texas, the station's market-leading, one-hour morning talk and information program that airs at 9 a.m. on WFAA. She assumes her new responsibilities immediately.
"Chris has provided an enormous amount of energy, continuity and leadership to the program, and this new title reflects her positive impact," said Dave Muscari, WFAA vice president/product development and the program's executive producer.
Huston joined the WFAA staff in 2000 working as a producer on Good Morning Texas. She left WFAA for a brief time working with a local literary agent before returning to the station in 2003.
"Chris has a diversity of work experience," said Muscari, "which is helpful when it comes to producing such a topical program."
"Good Morning Texas competes against national programming in the time slot, so our focus is local," said Muscari. "Chris knows north Texas, and how to provide our viewers with entertaining daily snapshots of the captivating people, interesting places and happenings in D-FW. She has also done a good job working with a wide variety of clients and our account executives to help them create exposure for clients."
Huston began her career in Atlantic City, N.J. as a sports anchor/reporter. She continued as a sports reporter in markets including El Paso, Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth before joining WFAA.
She is a graduate of Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and lives in Trophy Club, Texas with her husband.
