Shreveport, La. - Kudos to two Dallas sports reporting legends who got their start back in the 1970's here at KTBS3.
Jose Gant and Arnold Payne are the newest Silver Circle inductees into the Emmy's Hall of Fame.
The Lone Star Awards Ceremony for Sports was held Monday at AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, Texas. Each with 40 years in the business, Jose and Arnold are still grateful for the KTBS3 News Director who gave them their start. Payne says, "On one of my many visits to channel 3 to keep my name relevant. He said son, take the camera and go out to the parking lot and shoot anything that moves. And hours later I got my first job in television news."
Gant's and Payne's families still live here in the Shreveport area. KTBS3's Brenda Teele had a chance to work with them during her tenure at WFAA about 15 years ago.
