It may sound like a cliche, but working on Good Day really is an advenure.  Most days, I don't know what my story's going to be until I walk into the newsroom. Sure, it's an early wake-up call, but I feel fortunate to be able to report on issues that really matter to lots of viewers. This shift has also taught me the value of getting a jump on the day!

And then there's the chance to do a "Dan About Town" segment now and then. Those are great, because they require a different approach than a hard news segment. You still have to get the information across, but in a more light-hearted, dare I say comedic way.    

I also get lots of opportunities to anchor our noon newscast, as well as "Fox4 All Day", for the "Fox Local" App. A full day? Indeed it is, but it's hard to think of anything else I'd rather do.          

I've certainly been on Good Day for a while now, and there've been lots of changes in the technology we use, to gather and present the news. It's also remarkable to reflect on all the people who've come and gone over the years.    It's an amazingly diverse group, but the one common trait is a real dedication to journalism, and giving YOU the best possible newscast every single day.  And when a story comes together like you hoped it would, it's a feeling that never gets old.  

I'm not from Texas originally, but I'm starting to feel very much at home in these parts. I grew up in Southern California, and attended UCLA. But from the first week I got here, I was struck by how much North Texas has going for it.   It's a place where people make things happen; there's a restlessness and energy here, that I really appreciate. So if you happen to run into me around town, by all means say hello.   
And if you have a story you think we need to hear about, drop me a line at Dan.Godwin@Fox.com.

Thanks for watching, and I'll see you in the morning!
