Tim Ryan Announces Retirement. After 33 years with Fox 4 and 27 years of doing the morning show there, he announced this morning that he is retiring. His last day on the air will be the 26th. We’ll have more on this at some point. Tim is one of my favorite TV hosts in town, and a run that long deserves recognition. Just like Tim himself, his retirement announcement was understated and short. Not many people know that Tim is only 5 foot 4; the camera adds 6 inches. I’m kidding, of course. Tim is actually 5 foot 5.
It’s Still Hot. The DMN has a great graphic looking at how many 100-degree days we’ve had each year going back 100 years. With 36 days in triple digits by the end of July, we are on pace this year to set a record. Yay! History!

Now that the emerald ash borer has made it to North Texas, every one of those trees could be killed in the coming years.
