Pay your respects to outgoing Channel 8 news anchor Gloria Campos tonight from 9 to 11pm at the Victory Plaza studio near downtown Dallas. There will be some revelry and food trucks lined up to serve her fans.
Campos has been with WFAA since September 1984, when she started as an anchor. Campos was the first Hispanic anchor in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. Prior to the Channel 8 gig she spent eight years at KGBT-TV in he hometown of Harlingen which was her only other broadcasting job shortly after graduating from Southwest Texas State University in 1976.
We wish Ms. Campos the very best an thank her for her many years of service to the DFW area. Her final broadcast will be Friday evening.
