A helpful FBvian tells us of her Custer encounter:
I went to a Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program banquet in October, and Brian Custer was the emcee (he was great, by the way). At the end of the awards ceremony, he announced that he had decided not to renew his contract with Channel 11. He was emotional about it (even got a little choked up at the end), but I got the impression that it was pretty much his decision. Now, I realize that any departing employee would not want to burn any bridges by disparaging his or her employer, but he came across as very genuine. It makes a lot of sense that he would decide to move on. How much further could he go in the Dallas sports market, especially since the sports anchors at each of the four affiliates are so entrenched? I guess Thelma Youngblood forgot to mention that.
