Dale Hansen Speaks Out on Being the Victim of a Childhood Sexual Assault

By Jason Heid |

It takes courage to do what WFAA’s Dale Hansen did on the air last night. Jump to the 3-minute mark of the video, past the cheesy Oak Ridge Boys song. The longtime sports anchor talks about the time a 16-year-old boy assaulted him, and about his silence until now.

If he had stolen my bike… the glove on the handlebar… the dollar in my pocket… or simply punched me in the face and blackened an eye.. I would have told everybody.

Instead, I told nobody.
