I think that Brendan and Debbara make a great anchor team! As long as nothing ELSE changes I will keep watching NBC 5 Today morning news.

Brendan Higgins is number one. I am switching to Fox in the mornings. NBC/DFW make another big mistake letting him go!!

I'll miss him. He has a real off-beat sense of humor and sometimes utters the oddest non sequiturs. The mornings have been pretty bland lately. I'm going to check out what else there is.

Sent NBC an email this morning...they have
just shot themselves in the foot...Love Deborah
and Tammy but it was Brendan's interaction that
made my day...I just hope a local station is smart
enough to spend the money needed to keep him here.

That's nuts! I bet the same person had a hand in not renewing Rebecca Miller's contract. Channel 5's lost another viewer for early morning news. Looks like I'm headed to Fox News for all my information now. Good luck, Brendan! You will be missed.

NO NO NO I miss Brendan so much. I loved the way he told us the news with professionalism and humor. I only hope where ever he goes they appreciate him like we did in DFW.

I do believe that there is a little skullduggery going on at NBCDFW..1st is was Rebecca Miller, now Brendon Higgins..When two great people are released without a published reason, maybe a look behind the scenes at the person responsible is needed..I now watch Channel 11 news 24/7.

Brendan was the reason I watched in the morning. HAVE Y'ALL GONE CRAZY. ARE YOU TRYING TO LOSE YOUR FAITHFUL VIEWERS CAUSE YOUR DOING A GOOD JOB. First Becky and now Brendan, if the same person is responsible y'all have a problem on your hands......I'm switching to a station that cares.

This is really sad. Loved watching Brendan. He's the only reason I watched channel 5 in the mornings. Yep, somebody screwed up.

Absolutely! It's the same girl that fired Rebecca Miller!!! Get rid of HER!! She's destroying our morning news! I think her name is Susan Tully. I still don't like the weather girl - she can't get her timing right and gets cut off all the time.

Four reasons I watched TV Channel 5: Brendon,Debra, Rebeccca and Tammy. Two down and two to go. The Manager, must be an unloved woman and a plant from another station. The new wether girl and partime traffic person SUCK.
Goodbye NBC, Hello Fox.

It took all I had to keep watching Channel 5 after they let Rebecca go...it was Brendon that kept me there. I started watching Channel 8 Friday morning after I heard they had let Brendon go and will continue. I may even leave it there and watch GMA instead of the Today show from now on. What's the matter with these people...it's that Susan Tully they need to let go!

I am sure there is some deeper reason to let Brenden go other than what we could speculate - however, it seems that once the viewers become comfortable with an anchor, and view them as a member of a "family", they are gone. I would encourage whoever does the hiring/firing to look past such indifferences to see that their actions effect us all, not just the station. We dont deserve a reason, but we do deserve longevity. There have been too many changes at NBC 5.

Are you serious? NBC let the best anchor on morning TV get away? I was hoping Brendan was on a much deserved vacation and now to learn he is NOT coming back... Deborah Ferguson is great but it was truly Brendan that made CH. 5 news my station of choice. With Rebecca Miller gone to CH. 33 and now Brendan gone, I will have to review my choice of network news. Brendan truly was the best. His talent is up there with Matt and Brian Williams.
