IM Just Saying: The Rebecca Miller Interview

rebeccamiller.jpgOn March 5, longtime Channel 5 meteorologist Rebecca Miller learned that her contract would not be renewed. She was kind enough to suffer through a Q&A with me. After the jump, you can learn, among other things, how much weight she plans to lose, where her favorite restaurant in the whole world is, and whether she knows how to make a Tom Collins:

10:57 AM me: trying again

becky: Hey! I’m here now!

10:58 AM me: Look at you. All up in the Interwebs. Extremely proud of you. So you have a few minutes for a Q&A?

becky: Sure…I’m taking all my grad courses on-line, so we have to chat a LOT….I’m doign stuff on the internet I never dreamed of…..ooohhh….

10:59 AM me: I won’t press you to describe these new things you’re doing on the Internet. That might make it tougher to land your next job. Which I’ll get to.

But what grad courses are you taking?

11:01 AM becky: Homeland Security. About a year ago, when things were getting really bad at work, I started exploring other options. We’re from New Orleans, and we all know what happened with Katrina…so I started thinking, “How can I combine a degree in meteorology with media experience? What kind of job would that lead to?” I started with A&M, and they offer grad courses and a program in Homeland security…so I enrolled, got accepted and have started that.

11:02 AM me: Wow. Does that include any training with handguns and so forth?

Because that would be tough to do online, I’d think.

11:03 AM becky: Well, right now, I’m in a homeland security class and an emergency management class….but NEXT semester…it’ll be WMDs!!!

me: Nice.

11:04 AM I just got back from N.O. First time since Katrina. I thought the city looked great. Bourbon Street, downtown, the area up St. Charles to Tulane, etc. — you couldn’t tell that anything had happened.

11:05 AM becky: Yeah…the Quarter didn’t flood, and the uptown area didn’t get much more than wind damage. If I’d known you were going, I could have told you were to go to see houses that are still standing, untouched since they were sitting in 12 feet of water. There are literally tens of thousands of them.

uhh…..that’s “Where to go”

11:06 AM me: We stayed with family. They kept threatening to take us on “a tour of destruction.” Instead, we went to The Commander’s Palace.

11:07 AM becky: My favorite restaurant in the world!!!! We waited and waited for it to open..I think it just opened back in December…

11:08 AM me: Okay, now let’s get to this business at Channel 5. You worked there for, what, 17 years? Harold Taft actually hired you?

11:10 AM becky: Yes..Harold hired me back in 1991. Gave me a test. He asked me the Bernoulli equation. I told him, basically, what it was…and he said, “No, I want the actual equation.” I said, “Man, I don’t remember that!” He said, “Oh, Bernoulli is rolling over in his grave.” I said, “Better him than us!”…and we got along great after that. He had me do a couple more map analyses to make sure I knew what I was doing, they had me do an audition tape, we went to lunch and that was that. They offered me a job by the end of the week…

11:11 AM me: And then that bastard Brian Hocker canned you unceremoniously. Or was it Susan Tully who swung the axe? Which one do you hate more?

11:13 AM becky: No…Brian is just the station spokesperson. He’s a great guy. Susan was my actual boss. I just happened to stumble upon a boss who didn’t like my work. When my contract was up, it provided her the opportunity to put someone in there that she did like. She said my work had gone downhill since 2004, and now that my contract was up, she thought it best that we part ways. I said, “OK”. That was about it.

11:15 AM me: What does that mean, “your work went downhill”? Do they keep a line for people in your work? Was your scoring average down? Were you not rebounding the ball as well?

11:17 AM becky: I have absolutely NO idea what that meant. I don’t recall doing anything particularly poorly since 2004….but bosses don’t really need a reason to get rid of you at the end of a contract. Once the contract’s up, that’s it.

11:18 AM me: It’s a tough business. But part of you HAS to be happy about having to get up early, right? You were let go March 5. How many morning have you slept in?

Sorry. Happy about NOT having to get up early.

11:19 AM becky: Yes…I was just telling someone I don’t have to get up at 2am anymore. That’s awesome. I have slept in every single morning since the 5th. Today, I got up at 8am!!!! That’s waaaay late for me, even for weekends!

11:20 AM me: 2 am? Good grief. Which means now you can actually go out and, say, eat dinner at a restaurant during the week, having a couple of highballs and so forth, and not worry about only getting four hours of sleep.

11:21 AM becky: Totally. When you work the morning shift, your body does not know what do to. You have to eat breakfast at 3am…if you can…dinner by 4pm….it really screwed me up and has done the same for a lot of my coworkers. Michael Scott…who was there before Brendan…put on 80 pounds working that shift! I’ve put on 25, which is a lot for someone only 5’2″. I’m looking forward to getting skinny again.

11:22 AM me: Will you send us pictures?

11:23 AM becky: Ha-ha….of course….or we could just go get dinner and hi-balls…geez I haven’t heard that term since I was bartending on Bourbon Street!!!

me: Wait, wait. You tended bar on Bourbon Street? That is spectacular. Where?

11:25 AM becky: Yeah…back when I was in college. It was only during Christmas break…during the Sugar Bowl (bleh)…and until I had to go back to college. It was a club called 711….one block past where you turn to go to Pat O’Brien’s. I’m not sure it’s even still there. But we poured drinks and learned how to do it as we did it!!! Someone would order something, and we’d say “what’s in that?” and the customer would tell us. They could have totally been making it up, and we never knew. But it was fun.

11:28 AM me: Okay, screw Bernoulli. Here’s a real test. What’s in a Tom Collins? No fair using the Internet.

becky: Have NO idea. Ha-ha! Guess my bartending contract won’t be renewed, either!!!!

11:29 AM me: Yeah, I’ve noticed your work has gone downhill, Becky.

Listen, thanks for doing this.

becky: HA! Sure..I’m not sure how insightful I’ve been. They never really tell you why you’re being told to leave work…wish they did!

11:30 AM me: Do let us know when you can what’s next. Any chance we’ll see you on the Dallas airwaves anytime soon?

11:31 AM becky: I’ve had a few stations call and some options present themselves, so we’ll see. Hey…Tammy just called and she said hello!

11:32 AM me: That scamp. Tell Tammy the next time she’s out drinking with Alexa Conomos, I want more pictures.

11:33 AM becky: You know how much trouble she got over that picture???? Unreal.

11:34 AM me: Oh. No. I didn’t know she got in trouble. I’m so sorry for posting it. And for linking to it again, when I post this Q&A.

Cheers, Becky. We’ll stay in touch.

becky: Sounds great, Tim! Nice talking with you!


  • Dwight

    Great post Tim, thanks. Lots of us were wondering about Becky and thinking WTF??? Those bastards! She’ll come out the winner tho in the long run.

    From one Aggie to another– GIG EM BECKY…good luck and we’ll be watching for you!!

  • wmp

    The sole excuse I had for Tivo-ing NBC/5 news went out the door with Rebecca Miller. Sad to hear how shabbily they treat their talent – didn’t used to be that way so much. At least now I don’t have to even bother with nbc5 at all.

    All the best to you, Becky. Those of us who remember Harold weren’t altogether likely to embrace a young whippersnapper, but you brought class, brains, and warmth to every broadcast & it won us over. Be sure to let your fans know what you’re up to once you’ve landed, ok?

  • MolliePS

    Becky- keep your chin up girl! I’ve heard she was a tough one, I will miss you on the airwaves. We lookforward to seeing you again soon! The mornings are not the same without you.

  • Don in Austin

    Don’t forget the link, Tim.

    I’m very glad you made me look. Dayumn.

  • Zephyr

    It’s not just how Channel 5 treats its talent, but the total disregard for the viewers. They must think we’ll watch what- and whom- ever they shove down our throats.

  • Thanks, Don in Austin. I did forget. Your reminder made it unnecessary for me to add the link, but I did it anyway.

  • WGC

    I miss her already.

  • Puddin’Tane

    I hope the station becomes haunted by the ghost of Harold Taft.

    Susan Tully has her head up her a**.Just wait,Karma is a bit*h and She shall be served- trust me.

  • DFWPotentate

    I’m sorry to say but Ms. Tully — I’m sure — did tons of viewer research before letting Ms. Miller go. TV station execs conduct focus groups before going to the bathroom so I can’t imagine that she didn’t do one before making the decision to terminate Rebecca contract.

    For all of you who don’t know, TV is brutal. Here one day — gone the next and that’s if you have the ratings. Imagine if you don’t.

  • J & P Mangham

    Our morning began with Rebecca and we enjoyed it. Tv is brutal. So heres hoping what goes around comes back. Wishing Rebecca all the best. It was a great lost. We have started watching other station. Some one needs to look at Ms Tully and her research. We never heard of one. So here is another fan of Rebecca. Go get em!!!!!!
    Thanks for the cheer in the morning.

  • David

    Harold Taft would roll over in his grave……..What a total disregard for such a beautiful person and the thousands of viewers that enjoyed Rebecca’a fine work over the past 17 years.

    Becky, we love you girl. I am sure you will be better off without them!

    Absolutely—-No more channel 5 for me!!!

  • Anonymous

    I e-mailed Ch 5 when I found out they axed Rebecca Miller – my daily morning news source. She always cheered me up so early in the morning. I got a form reply from Ms Tully – not personal. I am done with Ch 5. Will hope that Rebecca stays in this area – I’ll follow her to wherever she lands. Wish her the best!

  • Carole

    This really hacks me off. Becky is awesome!! I just thought she was on vacation, but then it got to be too many days and googled her name and found this. I have watched her for years and even emailed her a couple of times to ask a question–and you know what??? She always emailed me back! I also liked the fact that Becky had a connection to Harold Taft. Who in the heck is this Susan Tully b—- anyway? She is so NOT in touch.

  • Bethany and David

    We also noticed that Rebecca was absent.We thought she was on vacation but then she was gone too long…We found nothing to explain her absence on the KXAS website so we Googled her name and learned of her situation.We are so very disappointed. What were the executives at KXAS thinking? Obviously, they were not thinking at all!!!Stupid move Ms. Tully. After all these years of watching Channel 5,we’re done,we’ll watch a competitor from now on.All other KXAS staff-watch your back-you could be next! We’ll miss you Becky and we’ll look for you elsewhere.

  • Edie & Todd

    We miss you Becky! Good luck landing soon. You’ve got a LOT of support behind you! Thank you Tim for this interview.

  • Traci

    I also thought that Rebecca was just on vacation and googled her to see what was up after it’d been too long. I’m so disappointed to hear how unceremoniously she was let go after so many years of great service. Have to say, that sure doesn’t leave a high feeling of respect for Ms. Tully in my opinion. Rebecca was a huge reason I turned my tv on at 5am each day to see what the day would be like as I got ready for work. Rebecca ~ you will truly be missed by this viewer. Best of luck to you in the future, my mornings just won’t be the same.

  • Sheree

    I am so pissed! Like some of the others, I thought Becky was on vacation and then realized the vacation was too long! I have a feeling this person didn’t do any research and her work certainly hadn’t gone downhill. Sounds like a personal vendetta to me. My husband and I watched her every morning at 5am. I hope one of the other networks snaps her up. I am done with channel 5 news. Best wished to you Becky. What goes around, comes around and MS Tully will find herself getting canned for dumping the great talent and ruining the ratings.

  • Rebecca Miller has been fired. I hope Channel 5 viewers will prove to the genius who decided this was a good idea, that it was a bungle of huge proportion. I encourage everyone to send letters not only to the station, but to all media outlets in our area. I am sick to death of career-climbing, power-wielding execs disregarding the wishes of decent viewers. This woman was intelligent, knew her business and presented important information in a delightful and easily watchable way. She was community oriented and responded personally to correspondance from viewers at all times. It isn’t undoable, but I hope viewers will respond in a way that will show we don’t appreciate the decision that was made, or that a mainstay on Channel 5 wasn’t even given the courtesy of an on-air fairwell in which viewers might have participated. It was a slap in the face to loyal Channel 5 watchers. There was a time I could be counted in that group. No more.

  • Patty

    The departure of Rebecca Miller from Channel 5 in the mornings removes the last reason I had to watch their morning show. How Ms. Tully can fire a quality, educated person like Rebecca Miller and keep a no-talent like Tammy Dombeck is beyond comprehension! Does Tully really believe we are all morons with nothing between our ears but air, as Dombeck personifies?
    Channel 5 has lost a huge assett in Rebecca Miller. If there is justice in this world, the viewership will indicate to Tully she will do without loyal followers, as well.

  • Mary, Carmen, Chris and Perry


    My 17 year old daughter and 7 year old son have been asking about you, because well, we’ve all missed seeing and hearing you each morning. You see, you have been a part of our daily routine for the last 8 years, and a part of our family as well!
    You gave a beautiful smile to your audience each morning… like so many of your fans, we also adore you and wish you the greatest life has to offer.
    Best Regards!
    Mary, Perry and the kids.

  • Mary Phinney

    Ms. Tully has been swinging the axe like a lumberjack since she got her position. She has no taste and no appreciation for what the audiences like in this market. Ms. Tully is either from California or NYC; I would bet California. It was bad enough to see Scott Chesner go. Our family liked his sardonic asides and and frank opinions. I agree with “Patty”, Rebecca Miller is a great loss. Somebody with sense, please send Ms. Tully packing! We have been loyal Channel 5 fans for 30 years—but, it is over! We will be back to Channel 5 when Ms. Tully is gone.
    Mary and John

  • Judy Martin

    I, too, thought Becky was on vacation until last week when Jody Dean (KLUV) mentioned her in a way that I knew something was wrong. Susan Tully must be an idiot, as she told Becky that she couldn’t understand her forecast! I will no longer watch NBC5 morning news. Good luck, Becky! I’ll miss your smiling face and good weather forecasting.

  • Nicole Poyner

    I always watch channel 5 because I was confident of the weather reports from Becky. I assumed she was on vacation or possibly sick until I finally check kout the internet today. What a lost to channel 5, Of course the idiot who didnt renew her contract should get canned. I like Tammy but that is the only part of the news I will be watching. Nothing personal with the other crew.

  • Scott D.

    Noooooooooooooooo!!!!! I just found out and am absolutely DISGUSTED!!!! I have been an immense fan of hers for all of her 17 years. She has always been funny, incredibly intelligent, informative, professional – and so sweet. She would email me back if I emailed her. I don’t see Susan Tully doing that.

    Susan Tully, you little coward. You made this decision, and will be living with it for a loooong time. After SO MANY horrible decisions to good people that WE TRUST — it will come back to you. Trust all of us.

    Ok… I will also admit – I’ve had a little 17 year crush on her…. big time. 😉 It’s a the big joke in my household that my life goal is to meet Rebecca. hmmmm ok back to reality. LOL

    I hate to do this to Mike and Jane – and The Frock, but I WILL NOT be watching ANY further newscasts of KXAS. Period.

    By the way, the new set is flashy and pretty, but poorly designed. It makes the anchors look small, and far apart. It visually brings the management style of Susan Tully. Imagine that.

    Disgraceful. Shameful. I don’t know what I’ll do now – it seems I will NEVER get to meet her!!


    (Like Darth Vader in Episode III, after finding out Padme was dead.)

  • Boyd Ferris

    Bosses… Who is Rebecca Miller’s ex-boss? Not that it matters. As soon as she decides to come back to television, there will likely be a new boss over Channel 5 anyway.

    You can bet that where ever Rebecca Miller, goes to work, we will be there watching and cheering her on.

    Enjoy your Summer… Sleep in! I hope we see you soon.

  • CB

    I thout she was on a trip to Europe or something until I googled this morning. I only tune in for the weather and Becky on the 5’s. Then I switch to headline news. Becky was a great way to start the day!

    I’ll miss you Becky! I’m for sure switching stations now. I always liked your banter with Brendan. The dynamic is all messed up now.

    Thanks for an awesome post Tim.

  • Ronnie Ballard

    I was born and raised in Fort Worth. From my early childhood and the birth of television, I remember Harold Taft’s forecasts. I remember as well Harold bringing Becky on board. I always felt Harold was overlooking her forecasts. What type of message is Channel 5 sending to the public when it has its their thumb on a revered member of the community like Becky? I am certain someone on their staff can explain to the many children who admire Becky for including their school artwork on her forecasts. Or explain to anyone why they do not recognize an educated, talented, honest and community service oriented employee. Oh, it is coming to me now. They do not have to explain anything; they are the boss. It would be of no meaning for Channel 5 to explain its professional decision, as I will never watch Channel 5 again, even if Dallas is playing in the Super Bowl on that channel.

  • Gina

    I grew up watch channel 5 and Harold Taft and became a weather watcher. I remember when Beck y was hired. I have been a big fan ever since. My man Harold, knew what he was doing when he hired her. Ms. Tully is an idiot. Becky was the best. I just can’t understand why the broadcasting best can be so cruel and care so little of their viewers. I thought ratings played a role in the broadcast business…well, based on the posting above…channel 5’s will be going down.

    God bless you Becky…I know a great opportunity is in your future. I’ll miss you in the mornings.

  • Jennifer

    I too couldn’t figure out where Becky was. At first it was just where’s Becky? Then it was maybe she’s on vacation. To…man she sure has been gone a while. Thanks to GOOGLE we’ve been able to find out what happened. Heaven forbid that the viewers get some sort of explaination as to what’s happened. I have always been a fan of Taft, Frock, and Miller. And no offense to Finfrock, but it’s time that people realize that it’s not always about the ratings. Maybe there are other reasons as to why the ratings have gone down. If the truth be known I think Rebecca Miller is/was respected more than Mrs. Tully ever will be and she felt threated! Although I have no problem with the other members of the morning crew, I cannot support an organization that treats human beings with such little respect. Best of luck to the remaining crew but I will no longer be watching Channel 5 news (which is difficult because it’s what I’ve always watched) Becky if you end up in the metroplex please let us know so your loyal fans can join you again. To Mrs. Tully…I hope that what comes around…goes around.

  • Hi Becky,

    I hope you’ll read these comments so that you will know that you will be missed. I’m glad you get to sleep in now and I hope that you find your new career exciting and satisfying.

    The next time I see you after a workout, I won’t miss the opportunity to say hi.

  • Cynthia

    I was wondering where Rebecca Miller was. I tune in at 5 a.m. every day and I expect to see her present the weather. Ms. Miller is missed! We have been faithful viewers since coming to Texas in ’98. 5 a.m. and 6 p.m. are most watched weather and news times on NBC for my family. It sure is sad to see this Rebecca missing. At least viewers should have been able to say goodbye.

  • Shelley

    Well, so I finally find out what happened to Rebecca Miller!! I, too, emailed the station to get a reply from Ms. Tully that Rebecca left the station and they “could not discuss personnel issues.”
    I’ve lived in the DFW area for over 20 years and looked forward to seeing and hearing Rebecca’s forcast almost every morning before going to work. It’s a loss for the station and for the Channel 5 weather viewers.
    I wish her the best and hope she lands on a competing station-I’ll watch it.
    My question is why didn’t David Finfrock get involved in this decision since he’s the top weatherperson? Harold Taft would be shaking his head right now if he were alive and I can’t imagine he would have allowed her contract to expire. New management isn’t always better management and as difficult as it is with getting and keeping viewers, having a “winning” weather team will be much more difficult without Becky. At least she had some personality!!
    Good luck to you Becky.

    I began buying air time on WBAP-TV and WBAP-Radio in 1979 for many of my advertising clients. I produced TV commercials and audio tapes by the scores and got to know most of the On-Air, Production Staff and Sales Staff and they were ALL WONDERFUL FORT WORTH TEXANS.
    Then disaster….ABSENTEE OWEMERSHIP !!!
    Axes started falling and local pride began to fall. Three decades of the loss of prime people…the latest is Rebecca Miller. David Finfrock is the last hope to maintain any sense of local pride out there on “The Hill.”
    We will be watching for Becky taking the “Ratings” to another local (or national) network. I can hardly wait. NR

  • Arch

    I am guessing that Ms Tully does not quite understand how people in such a very large TV market choose which favorite news station they like to watch. Most people choose the station that they like by the personalities that make up the team that does the news broadcast. I enjoyed hearing Becky’s weather forecast each morning before driving to work. She will be missed and I hope for the best for her. Channel 5 must be going through one of those “Dumb and Dumber” periods in management. The Channel 5 die- hards never wanted to see Becky removed from our homes. I hope she stays in D/FW and goes to work for another news group. Good luck to our friend Becky……

  • Hated to see Becky go. Ch 5 has a history of running off or letting good ones get away. Where’s Scott Chesner? Where’s the other lady they had that left a couple of years ago?

    Harold would have quit by now. He wouldn’t stand for it.

    I’m watching FOX 4 now, until Becky shows up somewhere else…

    711 Bourbon Street…great place to visit…can’t believe she worked there, used to be a restaurant and bar, now more bar than anything else

  • John

    I miss Becky already. I just realized that she was gone. She will be missed. I too, will be going to another station for my weather. Good luck Becky! If you end up anywhere else in the DFW market, I will be there.

  • Patricia

    I really miss Becky. I’ll be changing to
    Channel 8 for my weather! After 17 yrs.
    How dare they? You’re the BEST.

  • lynda

    My husband and I have watched Becky since she joined the team…been wondering where she was and actually worried that she was ill or something. Amazing there is “no discussion” at all on the site. We like the Channel 5 team but not sure it will continue to be our morning weather/news station in light of the way Becky was treated.

  • Kris

    Yep…she got screwed over. Was a bright spot in the morning while getting ready for work, now have to settle for a blah mundane forecast from another station. Good luck in your future pursuits Becky!

  • Allison

    I just googled Rebecca Miller just like everyone else. I really have missed her in the mornings. I’ve watched her for the last 7 1/2 years. It was really cool to find a New Orleans girl here doing the weather. It was a little touch of home. I guess I won’t be watching Channel 5 anymore. I’ll be watching to see where Becky goes. Good Luck Becky…..I’m sure that you’ll land on your feet. By the way, Commander’s Palace is my fav too:)

  • Bob

    Rebecca was a true joy in the morning !We’ve been wathcing since she came to Ch.5. She didn’t take herself seriously but took her work very seriously.She was a real pleasure.I’m through with Channel 5.I’m sure they’ll run good ol David Finfrock off next !
    Becky,we wish you all the best.If you stay in DFW,we will be following you !
    You’re a real sweet way to start the am !!

  • James W.

    Susan Tully,I hope the ghost of Harold Taft comes to you every single night and torments you so you never get another minutes sleep in your rotten sorry life you lowdown skunk.
    I hope NOBODY EVER watches channel 5 again and your ratings drop so far you’ll be on the street corner begging with a cardboard sign.
    YOU should be fired and Becky Miller rehired..given decent working hours and double her salary.

  • James

    Hate to see her go… If only we can get rid of Tammy Dombeck… She does a poor job of traffic. have you noticed she likes the word “area”? She once used it 5 times to report the same proble. Shows a lack of imagination.

  • Ellen

    I still miss Becky! Why do you let the good ones go and keep the annoying ones….like Jane McGarry? What’s with that winking that she keeps doing? Trying to be cute at her age? Becky was cheerful, friendly and knew her weather. I’m watching other stations.

  • Barbara

    I totally agree with what everyone has commented on and very much miss Becky. My husband and I both have commented on where she was and missed her, but thought she may be ill or on vacation. I finally searched the Internet and found this interview. I hate to say this, since I am a woman, but Susan Tully gives women executives a bad name once again. Unfortunately, I’ve worked for too many of them just like her and much prefer working for a man or myself.

    Becky you will be missed and we will also be watching other channels to find someone we like as much as we liked you.

    God Bless you and I know better things are ahead for you and absolutely LOVE your attitude and perseverance….go get em Becky!

  • Carole

    I too googled to find out where Becky Miller had gone and found this interview. Thanks for the info. Becky proved, again, what a classy lady she is by being to the point but discretly candid with her answers. I, too, will a KXAS fan any longer. David Finfrock better watch for his departure soon, also. I have worked for too many women execs that think they are “god” and everyone should bow down and worship them and their decisions. Becky will be much happier and better off without being around such a person as Mz. Tully-fa-bloohy. Good luck, Becky, and may God bless you beyond measure!!

    I think that I understand what they meant about her work going down hill. After telling her a cold front was going to come through one day last fall, my 9 year old daughter told me that she didn’t need to take a jacket to school because it was “that morning weather lady and she was always wrong.” We watch channel 5 because I really enjoy the whole team, but I have to say that if the kids notice, then there must be something to it.

  • My cable company dropped Channel 5 about 4 years ago. I was so totally disgruntled over it. Becky Miller had become my permanent weather friend. I called the company to no avail! I wrote Becky a letter letting her know how much I missed her morning weather, and she was nice enough to reply back. Well! I am now on the Dish and the first thing I did when I got out of bed was turn to channel 5. I watched and watched each morning wondering where Rebecca was. I decided to try to find her on the net. Rebecca, channel 5 has lost it’s luster when it lost you so I won’t be rushing there for my morning news and weather. I hope you will relocate somewhere in our viewing area. You are super great!

  • Sue Henley

    No more channel 5 news for me. I have switched to channel 11, cbs. I am sorry this has happened to you, Rebecca. We’ll wait for Ms. Tully to get hers.

  • Dianne

    I miss Becky in the morning! BOO to Channel 5 management!!!

  • Michelle

    I asked channel 5 directly (through the CONTACT US link on their site)”…O.K…Where is Rebecca Miller?” 10 days later I got a reply that coldly stated Rebecca was no longer with KXAS and to understand that management decisions could not be discussed. I certainly hope Susan Tully is not her real name…I’m sure she has some very unhappy neighbors.

  • Patricia

    My husband and I have been woundering what happened to Becky!!! Always remember when one door closes windows open. You are probably better off. We will miss you and watch for you somewhere else. Hello channel 8 weather team, maybe I can stand Delkas.

  • Tammy & David

    My husband and I watched Rebecca everyday. We miss her so. I also thought she was on vacation or out ill. So we googled and this is what I suspected. I emailed channel 5 and received an email back without any information. We will definitely watch another station for our weather. Good luck to you Becky and your family. We really enjoyed watching you on television.

    I often teased my husband about watching his girlfriend Rebecca everyday….

    Good luck again!

  • Lisa

    I was wondering where you were, Rebecca. I’ve been looking for you to get the low down on the weather in the mornings. I’m sorry you had to go. You were a friendly face in the mornings.

    Sooooooo, you’re from New Orleans? Wow, I didn’t know that. So am I. I guess that makes you my home girl.

    I just went back “home” for the first time since Katrina. I kept putting it off, but I had to see for myself, the aftermath of Katrina. I see you took the easy way out and went to Commander’s Palace, instead.

    Okay, homegirl. Remember, “There’s no place like home” no matter what condition it’s in.

  • Rebecca, I’m sorry to hear what Channel 5 did to you. But you see, I haven’t had to get up early in the morning anymore either. I stopped watching channel 5 over a year ago, garbage in a tube, so I didn’t know you were gone. Do wish you the very best.

  • Rick

    Rebecca, please let me knw where you wind up, I ride a Harley to work when I can and always depended on your forcast in the mornings, you NEVER let me down, you were always right which is saying something concidering the Texas weather. Everyone at work could always judge the day when they pulled in and saw my bike in the garage.
    If you can, drop me a line, would enjoy just knowing your doing ok and then when you land, for where you go– I go, you are the one i trust, and you can send this to anyone you want, i will back it up.

    Rick Davis

  • LArry Grissom

    I just got down to finding out about Becky this morning and I am not a happy camper. You and Finfrock were the only two left in the DFW metromess I could halfway trust and he seems to be slipping a little. Guess I have to watch KDFW in the mornings as you were the only reason I watched 5 in that time frame. Reminds me a bit of Scott Chesner,and I still miss Howard. Seems like there is always some turmoil at 5 every few years.
    You will be and are missed.
    Thanks for your work.

  • Gary Huggins

    Here’s how I feel: I trusted her as much as I did Harold, plus she has a positive personality. Bottom line is that I will switch channels, and if she goes back into the Dallas market, I will be watching. I know it’s a competitive market, but whomever let her go just shot themselves (the station) in the foot. The head chicken ought to fire the person that let her go. Also my little opinion isn’t worth much, but everyone that I told about this thinks the decision was stupid. Anyway, you lost probably a LOT of viewers. We’ll miss her, and good luck to her–I don’t think she will need it. I hope she pops up on a competitor station–that’s where we will dial in!

  • Alexa

    I had wondered what happened to Becky. All of a sudden she was just gone! She not only is a great meterologist but has a nice personality…always pleasant and smiling…and she and the others on the NBC morning show seemed to have a good rapport. I’m impressed with her attitude in this interview. She will probably end up better off after this. I wish her the best! (The station should fire the person who refused to renew her contract.)

  • Carol2

    Just found out today why there has been “no Becky” at Ch 5. Shame on you, Ch 5!
    And to make matters worse, Ch 5 (which likes to think they are such a down home folksy station) didnt provide a chance for Becky to say goodbye to her multitude of fans. Anyone, except the one who fired her, would have known that Becky earned the respect of her fans and colleagues for 17 years. In Texas, that honor deserves the right to not just be “let go” without a word. When Troy Dungan at Ch 8 retired, the station let us down easily by having what appeared to be the bobsey twins of Troy and his replacement, Pete, for several months. It did get a bit annoying. But at least, it softened the blow.
    However, letting Becky go was a management blunder with no reasonable basis. Letting her go so abuptly was plain management stupidity.

  • Joanna

    Losing Rebeccca Miller in the morning has thrown our morning routine upside down. It’s hard to explain the loss we feel, but there is an emptiness inside. My husband and I have watched channel 5 every morning, M-F, for over 18years. When Rebecca joined, she brought sunshine to a cloudy day. We could always depend on her forecasts and guess what, we could understand them. Susan Tully must not be very educated, if she says she couldn’t understand her forecasts, what an idiotic comment from her! Rebecca is real, she is a part of the community. I always looked forward to her segments with the animals too and hearing about the work she does with the Ft Worth Zoo. She let us into her life, professionally and personally and that is why we enjoyed her so much in the mornings, along with Tammy (met her at the Target on Denton Hwy, in the produce section, what a super nice lady), Brendan and Deborah. It’s very sad that loyal views don’t count in the media at the corporate levels. So here’s a couple of more viewers NOT tuning into Channel 5 anymore and it’s hard to give up something that has been apart of your life for almost 20years, guess Susan Tully doesn’t think about that, that local news is a part of people’s lives. Good Luck Becky, my husband misses his TV girlfriend, he has always had a little thang for you. 🙂 And it never bothered me a bit, I enjoyed it! If you go back to local tv, we will be there with you. Thanks for all these great years, with a dependable forecast!! You are truly missed by Joanna and Donny.

  • tom

    i,too was surprised,but not stunned to hear of the departure of Rebecca Miller from Ch.5.she was certainly a breath of fresh air(pardon the pun)from some of the other local tv personalities,who are self-serving prima donnas.but tv is a business,a well as a visual medium so therefore there has to be a scapegoat at some point.this kind of thing(with the politics)happens everywhere and i wish ms. Miller all the best in the future.

  • phil

    “I certainly hope Susan Tully is not her real name…I’m sure she has some very unhappy neighbors.”

    Don’t kid yourself. Ms Tully probably lives in Dallas. I doubt she knows where or what Meadowbrook is. And, I doubt she has ever heard of Johnny Hays, Bobby Peters, Bud Sherman, Luther Adkins, Larry Morrell or any of the other folks who built the station. I left out Harold Taft because I expect she has heard or read his name a good bit lately. Rebecca Miller will do just fine without the likes of Ms Tully.

  • Jeff

    Has anyone heard from Rebecca lately? Do we know where she has gone? I really miss her in the mornings. =(

  • Basia, Karen and Michelle

    We are devastated! We knew Rebecca was gone, but didn’t know what happened. Well, you can bet we won’t be supporting channel 5 or watching them! We disapprove of Rebecca being let go, but the way it was handled was cowardly and in poor taste!!! I guess we will have to use the Weather channel or the internet! Or listen to the radio! Thanks a lot channel 5. The least you could have done was allow her to say good-bye!

  • Bryan & Irene

    Bye channel 5

  • Dennis Smith

    When Rebecca so abruptly was dropped from channel 5 I was so disappointed. Now that, after three months, I have read the explanation of Rebecca’s dismissal, I am thoroughly disgusted. Harold Taft would be ashamed you. Bye-bye Channel 5!

  • S Johnson

    Rebecca was great and I really miss seeing her. I liked Scott Chesner too and am really disappointed they both are gone. Rebecca has such a sweet personality, hopefully some other local station with taste will pick her up!

  • Lou

    Ms. Tull, maybe you should look at your own self…Oh wait, you probably think you are perfect. I will watch the weather on any station, other than Channel 5. Sorry NBC5, but it is pretty sad that one employee you have can make this many people change to another channel for weather.

  • Teresa Morton

    Rebecca, I have known for sometime why you left but this is the first chance I’ve had to write. I no longer watch nbc5 unless someone else turns it on. I had been a faithful fan of the program since I was a child. I did some research to see who was responsible for this stupidity. I know that Brendan, Tammy, and Deborah had nothing to do with it and you still consider them friends. I know that Susan Tully did and I can’t believe no one higher up stopped her. I heard you on WBAP the other day filling in. I hope in September when you are free to talk to other stations you will be back on the air. My family, and it is a big family will follow where you go. We miss you.

  • Michael Lucero

    Rebecca, miss you seeing in the morning. Matt 6:33

  • Valencia

    Rebecca, you were (and still are) a part of our family. From 5.a.m. when I was up alone making the kids’ lunches until 6:55a.m. when I was chasing my boys around trying to leave on time, we loved to see you and took great pride and confidence in your reports. I especially enjoyed the time you spent at the zoo with the animals. I still watch but it just isn’t the same. My attention is beginning to waver. I wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors. Remember, God knows what He’s doing. There’s nothing but good waiting to come to you. I wish you well.

  • Ruth

    Miss you, Becky. I, too, have switched from Chan 5; what’s the point, now? Just remember that when GOD closes one door, HE has something much, much better in mind for you! You will do great at whatever you decide to do. Good Luck & GOD Bless!

  • yvonne

    I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this article. I noticed Rebecca was gone and I wasn’t sure what happened. I will tell you, the new girl stumbles through her forecast and doesn’t have much of a television presence. In fact, I think she’s pretty boring and if it wasnt for the Today Show, I’d probably be switching it over to the Fox gang.

  • carol

    We miss Becky. I am now watching channel 11.

  • Shirley Bryant

    My sister and I had wondered why we didn’t see Becky anymore. Since we retired (teachers from FWISD), we rarely get up for the early news and weather, but we surely won’t now with Becky gone. I don’t know who Susan Tully is, but I hope she goes back to wherever she came from. It looks like everyone feels the same, from all the comments I just read. Channel 8 treated some of their crew badly and Channel 11 had the good sense to grab them up. Now we have another reason to watch them as opposed to Channels 5 and 8. Way to go NBC5i!!!

  • Nina

    Ms. Tully, Clearly, you lack class. Ms. Miller brought many viewers to KXAS with her intelligence, warmth and sincerity. You had every right not to renew her contract, but to not allow her to say goodbye to her fans and keep the truth from us shows a distinct lack of concern for your viewers, and it will catch up with you.

    Becky–we know you will land on your feet and make another lucky station very happy to have you. We wish you all the best!

    PS KXAS–Goodbye. Hello Channel 11.

  • Bob

    Are you all kidding? That fat slob put on 6″ of diameter a year since 2004. And worst of all, she still wore the same small jackets. Almost ripping the buttons off, the material pulled far past its limits. Hey! no one wants to look at a fat slob at breakfast time. If you have a television job – getting fat is the best way to lose it. OMG the line of people who want “on air” jobs is limitless. She should have put down the fork and spoon, and got on the exercise bike. And now the fattard wants to be homeland security? What’s next? Why doesn’t she just get a job at McDonalds (Becky’s feed trough) and get her eat on without care.

  • Roberta

    We miss you very much Becky.You are the best in the field of weather. We know that events happen for a reason, and this, that happen to you, will be to your advantage. Look forward to seeing your smiling face in the future, Take care and God Bless. Lake Whitney residents, Roberta & David

  • Mary

    I haven’t watched channel five since Becky left. I think she was the best part. Bob,you sound like a real jerk. Becky was not fat and anyway she has such a good personality. We miss you Becky.

  • Leo

    Becky, we all you miss you and wish you the best.

    Now, we need to give Jennifer Lopez a chance. We all know that in Texas we can be sitting on our porch, dry as a bone, and watch it raining across the street. The lady has a nice personality too.

    As far as Ms. Tully, she has bosses that am I sure were instrumental in firing Becky. The bearer of bad news always gets the blame.

    BUT the part I cannot stand is the fact that KXAS seems to be ashamed of the fact they are in FORT WORTH not Dallas. totally sickening.

  • Allison

    Finally – At last! I finally found out what happened to Rebecca Miller. I was also a faithful watcher. She was a normal,down to earth, girl next door kind of person. Best of luck to you Rebecca and hope you are off to bigger and better things!

    PS This is a tribute to Rebecca. Can someone please DELETE Bob on July 14th? He must be too perfect for all of us NORMAL people!

  • Arch

    Well I see that Ms Tully found her replacement for Becky. What a joke to D/FW and the surrounding communities. Someone should fire Ms Tully, because it is quite obvious she has no clue what the Dallas / Ft Worth TV market needs. Could you imagine visting the Dallas / Ft Worth area and being an NBC die-hard. Susan, you should of found someone that could maybe surpass Becky’s very good looks and great personality. You failed again…..Susan get your head out of the sand and get Becky back or find someone who might represent the D/FW – NBC – Channel 5 area better. As a large community in America when need to be represented in a much better form.

  • Max

    Total loss for the DFW viewing area. FYI “Bob” – I for one am more interested in a real person than a TV personality stuffed into the mold.

  • Karen

    Ms. Tully is a twit. Sorry to see you go Rebecca. You will be sorely missed. The replacement is very green. I guess they got what they paid for. Good Luck to your ratings CH5 news…you’ll need it from what I can tell! I wish you all the best Rebecca! As for Ms. Tully…frack her!

  • Marian

    What a loss to the loyal viewers of Channel 5 to let Rebecca Miller get away! I have always found her to be very cute, wholesome, friendly…like a next-door neighbor! As I recall, she forecast an Arlington tornado just in time to save the lives of the people where the tornado hit. It is not everyday one finds brains, expertise, and personality all together in one person. Rebecca even participated in the community as a docent at the FW Zoo.

    I am very disappointed that she is no longer with Channel 5 and hope she turns up soon on another local station.

  • Lynda

    I was just wondering why I have not seen Rebecca in the mornings. She just always made my day get off to a good start. I can not believe that the Higher Up can not see that she was the reason why channel 5 was the most watched channel for news and weather in this area. Always accurate and caring..not only weather but everything…I miss you Rebecca and I have not watched Channel 5 since I noticed you was gone…I have switched also. I wish for you the best and if you come back on TV I will be watching you. She will get her just deserts one day and what goes around comes around is so true..there is someone higher than her that does not like her either…Best wishes to you and your family..We all love you..God bless you.

  • Gary & Kay

    My wife and I have been very disappointed about the release of Rebbecca Miller. She brightened our weekday mornings traveling to work from Van, TX. to Dallas and Ft. Worth. Her personality and banter with Don Harris and Hal Jay on WBAP were a joy. We also enjoyed her time on Channel 5 when we watched TV. Needless to say, it’s hard to believe Channel 5 continues to keep Mike “it’s all about me” Schneider. Big mistake letting her go. We hope to see her again soon in a market that appreciates her. Bottom line, Channel 5 is not on our viewing list.

  • 8-2-08
    Ms. Rebecca, wishing you best of everything , they lost big time…

    blessings and prayers…

  • mae thorpe

    i recently turned 82 years old.remember when becky started.she is wonderful.i do not care for chanel five any more.

  • mae thorpe

    im sorry i wasnt through i think becky has the most beautiful smile that a person could ever makes for a beautiful day.i can not believe this has husband and i both all ways looked for the beautiful smiling husband served one year in the korean war in the army then joined the air force spent two diffwrent tours in vietnam .we have survived the tours.this is a tragic mistake this woman made when she let becky go.have no use for chanel five any more we love you becky and miss you so much

  • Gary

    I like you filling in for Hal anyway!

  • Teresa Peiser

    I miss Rebecca and have vowed not to watch Chanel 5 anymore just because of that worthless witch that chose not to renew Rebecca’s contract – I don’t like her and pray that what goes around comes around and her day will come… soon, I hope! Rebecca, D/FW LOVES YOU DEARLY!!!! Good luck girl!!!

  • Brian

    What a disappointment to find out Rebecca is no longer on Channel 5. She brighted our days and supported the community. You will be sorely missed. Wishing the best for you and your family. Hope to see back on our screen someday….

  • Betty King

    Yep, I am one of the 100’s who had to google to find out what happened to Becky Miller! People like Ms. Tulley don’t really care that we will stop watching channel 5. People like Becky would have wanted to keep the viewers happy, but, obviously, Ms. Tulley is nothing like Becky. Becky, you hang in there because there are people who support you 100% and are waiting for you to come local again. Hey, what about channel 4, who just lost someone in Beckys area of expertise!! ?

  • Debby

    I wonder if Becky reads this? I hope so.

    And, if so, you should know there are many of us in North Texas who enjoyed your great personality each week-day for many years. We miss you very much. But I’m happy for you…this is an opportunity to explore new options. As painful as it probably was to leave something you’d done so well for so long, in the long-term it will be a good thing.

    The upside for me is I don’t have to change to Ch 8 at 0700 each morning; I just start there in the morning. Do miss Tammy, and her outfits, but not enough to put up with the others on Ch 5.

  • Sarah Nunez

    I hope Rebecca Miller gets a chance to read this. I moved away from Ft. Worth 6 years ago, so I didn’t know until today that she was no longer with Channel 5.

    Becky, I don’t know whether or not you remember me from A&M (I’m pretty sure you remember my husband). I was one of the Basic Mets there in ’83. I don’t think I ever got to tell you this, but you’re the reason I passed Djuric’s classes, especially the Fortran stuff.

    If you read this, Becky, please contact me. I’d like to pick your brain about broadcast meteorology in general.

  • Earl

    Just damn! I fundamentally bailed on Ch5 when they ‘shirts’ tossed one of my favorites – Scott Chesner(sp?), however, always peeked in to see Becky and Tammy in the AM.

    The very first time I emailed Becky at the station was yeas ago, and I used “No. 1 WeatherBabe” as the subject..not really knowing how Becky would take that….with all the PC stuff and all. In fact, she thought it was complimentary…the original intent, of course, and she always answered my weather questions very quickly over the next few years.

    I was shocked and horrified to see that she was gone! IMO, it’s just more typical corporate BS, which is fundamentally killing local news viewing.

    In any case, as previously posted, I hope this turns out to be a good thing for you, although we sorely miss seeing your smiling face every morning!


  • Nancy Crosby

    I was stunned that Ch. 5 did not pick up Rebecca Miller’s contract. She had the most personality of any weather caster.

    Jennifer Lopez has absolutely no personality and I will not watch Ch. 5 anymore.

    I had been watching Ch. 5 since Harold Taft’s death because of Rebecca Miller.

    Get rid of Ms. Tulley! She has no idea what she is doing!

  • maria s.

    I keep on asking my self,wonder what happened to Becky?meant to call but;finally did .please can you tell me why? i have been watching channel 5 since Scott was fire from channel 8, well, guess what ,no more channel 5,i will go back to see Scot S. but now i am divorce , and my ex husband will not be jealous.

  • Bunny R,

    Becky had the viewers, not David, nor Chet, nor James. Certainly not Lopez.
    My husband and I have watched ch 5 since 1976, when Harold was the guy to watch. Seems you could care less, but Becky was one of Harold’s picks. She was the BEST!! We now watch ch 4,8 or 11. Never ch 5. And never will again. Hope Becky comes on one of our NEW stations we watch! You, Ms. Tulley, if I may say so, need some training in your business.

  • lisa

    I and my husband also were wondering what happened to rebecca. what a bad move on ms. tully has made. we too will watch another station instead of channel 5. good luck to you rebecca in what ever you do.

  • joanne

    Glad to read that so many people are STILL upset about Rebecca’s departure from channel 5. I miss her. It is touching to see how many viewers remember the Harold connection; he is my father-in-law.

  • terry

    if anyone can pass along a message to rebecca, tell her to come to tyler and join scott chesner at channel 7. we’d love to have her here!

  • wanda

    Best of luck to you Becky! Hope you are out on the airwaves around here soon!

  • MReves

    I MISS BECKY!!! I happened to have looked up an energy survey website this morning and it had a link to a story Channel 5 did and Becky was the reporter! I was so excited, and just thought I had missed seeing her, and surely she had just changed times, then I discovered it was in Jan or Feb! It piqued my interest enough to search on where’s Rebecca Miller! Glad Front Burner did the piece and that it was still available. Best of luck to you, Becky! I loved you & your professional delivery of the weather & your Zoo stories, etc! Maybe front Burner can give us an update on how you’re doing and how your Grad classes are going! GRAND PRAIRIE FAN OF NBC5 NO MORE!
    (Just say No to J-Lo!!!!)

  • M. Keller

    I’m also late to the party and recently found out Rebecca Miller was fired from Channel 5. I hadn’t seen her of late but thought she was on a leave of absence or something. I met Becky several times through a mutual friend from New Orleans and she was as kind and upbeat in person as she was on the tube. I worked for American Airlines for 20 years and loved how she used to give the altimeter settings for pilots in her morning newscasts, because she was married to a pilot for a regional carrier. I also loved her animal reports and felt that she was such an asset to the Channel 5 morning team. They truly had a great chemistry together; you could tell they all were friends outside of the office. I agree with everyone else that this is a decision Ms. Tully will regret; you just can’t recreate or replace Becky’s friendly demeanor and reliable forecasts. Bad move, Ms. Tully…but what goes around, comes around. Something tells me your days in charge may be numbered. Becky, congratulations on your graduate studies; whatever you end up doing, I know you will do it well! Best wishes to you in your future endeavors and you are missed.

  • marie rogers

    This unfortunate and ill-made choice to fire Rebecca clearly shows that Tully is out of step with the viewers of channel five.
    It’s just incredible that channel five still employess Brenden Higgins who is the MOST annoying broadcaster ever employed in the DFW area. If it weren’t for the women on that show, I would switch stations.

  • Judy

    I’ve quit watching Channel 5 because Rebecca Miller is no longer there. I’ve always watched Channel 5 but no longer feel that I can support this station because of how they obviously treat their employees.

    You would think such a loyal, long-time employee would be treated with more respect than Rebecca was given.

    Rebecca, I wish you the best of luck in whatever you choose to do.

  • randy barber

    I’ll never forget meeting Rebecca Miller when I was a Ford salesman at the State Fair. We talked for probably 30 minutes. She was a quality act then as she is now. She seems to like everyone and everyone loves her. I would love to see her land on another station in this market. Channel 5 can kiss my ___.

  • The Baker’s

    Becky, you might remember us from prairie correspondences in bad weather? We stopped watching 5 when we realized you’d been let go. You always took time to answer. How is your Mom in New Orleans? I still wish I had the gold tapestry jacket you wore in the Hill Country bluebonnets. We hope you’re doing only what you love, and not putting up with the Chan.5 nonsense. Cream rises to the top, and you have. Best wishes ~The Baker’s


    You were the only reason to watch channel 5 news ever. I moved to Dallas in ’93 saw you doing the weather first day there. You were so funny and friendly I was hooked. You were my weatehr person from then on. I have not watched that news show since you left. I am so happy to have seen you on WB33 but can’t find when you come on yet. When I do you have another faithful viewer. good luck, hope you stay in Dallas forever. A big fan!!!!!!

  • Bobbie Rogers

    My daughter (who was raised on Becky’s weather forecasts) lives in Ft. Worth and knew early on about Becky being asked to leave Ch 5. I have been seething ever since this happened and have opted to watch Fox now. I do miss Deborah who seems down to earth and sweet and used to get a laugh out of Tammy but a couple of times when channel hopping I saw that she has lost a lot of weight and looks like she has had a makeover. Nothing wrong with that unless it was REQUIRED BY THE BOSSES IF SHE WANTED TO KEEP HER JOB!!!! Waiting for your return to one of the local channels Rebecca!!!!

  • Terry Stinson

    Hey, Becky! We just want you to know we are STILL missing you!!! We sent in scathing objections to Ms. Tully within the the first 24 hrs of your dismissal and continued our objections in hopes that she would reconsider. Since she did not, we do not watch Channel 5 news anymore (as promised.) We miss you so much, your relaxed humour, your love of animals, your easy explanations, your compassion, and warm empathetic nature. We wish you all the success in the world and hope to see you again!

  • Fran Garcia

    I checked, way back when I noticed that Becky wasn’t on Channel 5. Luckily I heard her sub on WBAP and got to hear her talk about her firing. She was great to my granddaughter who is interested in the weather. We got to visit the station one morning and exchanged many emails with Becky. Now my granddaughter plans to do her science project on the weather forecasting. Becky’s name comes up often when we discuss the project. She was the reason I turned on Channel 5 in the morning.

  • Becky B

    Becky did the 9 PM weather tonight on WB33 subbing for Bob Goosman, who was apparently under the weather as he did not sound well last night. Due to the world series she was the only 9PM weathercast. Apparently she normally does the weekend weather on WB33.

  • Tom H

    I met Becky in person at the Home Depot in Southlake, she was shopping for light fixtures for their game room. She was such a pleasant lady to talk to and it actually took me awhile to realize who she was, she never acted snooty or rude like some TV personalities. It was early fall and getting chilly out and her she was wearing flipflops, not only is she a gorgeous young lady, but she has cute feet and toes too. hahaha honest…I lost my job at the HD for being too open and pleasant with some customers, my bosses remind me of those at Channel 5, no sense of humor. I am moving back to the Ft. Worth area and looking forward to seeing Becky on CW33. I sure won’t tune into 5 like I did for so many yrs. living in Grand Prairie.

  • Pat Gunn

    Becky, we still miss you! Ch 5 news/weather is not on my dial anymore and I’m looking forward to Tully “gettin’ hers!” Wish you the best. (We miss Scott, too. They must have s*** for brains at 5!)

  • dmbart

    I kept thinking, “What the heck where is Rebecca?” I finally googled when I could not stand it anymore to see what happened. I will not watch 5 anymore, after I make a list of sponsors to boycott. Watching Rebecca gave me a comfortable feeling like being at home. Now my day starts very unbalanced. I hate this.

  • I just loved Rebecca Miller, she is a great weather person. In March when I returned from a trip I missed not seeing her, so e-mailed the station. I received a very short memo saying she doesn’t work here anymore. I don’t watch channel 5 in the morning anymore. I don’t like Jennifer Lopez’s voice ( sorry). I miss you Becky. The best in your future.

    I was excited to see Rebecca Miller on WB33 tonight. I was running through the channels and there she was. I was glued to their news show until it ended.

    I was a faithful and loyal Channel 5 fan until the let Rebecca go. Even though I really like other personalities on there, I haven’t watched it since.

    Susan Tully is the one who should be out the door.

    We were also thrilled to see Rebecca on CH33 this evening. Like so many others we were shocked and very disappointed when she just “vanished” from KXAS. We emailed and received the same “canned” response from that pompous a*s Ms. Tully. We are huge fans of Rebecca’s “down to earth” and warm approach to her position. Can’t wait to see more of her on 33.

    Rebecca is back on 33? Great, will tune in tonight to see! I had been watching 5 since the Harold Taft days. The only reason for watching 5 for many years has been to see Rebecca reporting the weather and Tammy reporting the traffic. I’m still a big Tammy fan, but refuse to tune in anymore after the way Rebecca was treated. The media in this country makes me sick!!!! Since when did a persons weight have ANYTHING to do with their level of intelligence or how nice a person they are?

    I’m so happy to hear that Rebecca is on again. I’ll be watching Channel 33 now! Nothing against Tammy, Jennifer or the rest–but I to hate the way Rebecca was treated after 17 years with the station!!

    It may be the “standard” for television the way Tully let her go–but from a once faithful viewer’s standpoint–IT LACKS CLASS AND SUCKS!!

    Way to go Tammy–I’ll be checking you out on 33, so hang tough girlfriend!!

    Just posted and meant to say, “Way to go REBECCA–I’ll be checking you out on 33, so hang tough girlfriend!!”

  • What happened to Bob Goosman?

    I am so disgusted with channel 5 news. (Mainly Tully) The way Rebecca was let go is reminiscent of how Jerry Jones let Tom Landry go. NO CLASS at all!!! I left the metroplex in March 08 and just recently returned. I saw someone other that Rebecca doing the morning news and assumed she must be on vacation and the station hired someone new to fill in when the regulars were on vacation. After a couple of weeks I asked several people what happened to her. No one knew. I don’t like the morning news person. She is hard to watch. I finally googled Rebecca and found what everyone else has known for months. I am so upset. While I was gone the meteorologists I watched were, well they weren’t Becky. I was very excited to get back here to be able to watch a real class act. I looked forward to watching her. Before I left the area I watched her every morning and counted on her. I work outside in the elements and it was great to have someone you can depend on to get it right. Thanks Becky for your service for all those years. I look forward to seeing you again.

    I just happened by and was excited to read that you’re on 33. I’ll be tuning in. I quit watching NBC5 when you left. I have enjoyed watching you for a long time. I remember sitting in the closet with the TV, my dog,and a flashlight while the tornado was hovering over Hulen Mall. I’d have never made it without you. Best of luck in all that you do. I’ve missed you.

    It is so good to hear that Rebecca Miller is on channel 33 now. I just found out the other day. I telephone 33 to find out that she is on @ 9:00 pm. I will be watching my weather on 33 now. Every since they fired her I stopped watching weather on 5 and switch to 4 or 11 to watch the weather. Please do not misunderstand me, I do like David on 5 but will not watch because of what they did to Rebecca.
