Hello [firstname],

Welcome to the BABC - Houston newsletter of upcoming events, articles, and more from our membership.

At last a short holiday week and some cooler (it's all relative) weather. We hope you enjoy the holiday. But, remember, applications for the BABC International Business Awards are due on 15 July.

We are pleased to announce that Shara Fryer has agreed to MC this year's business awards luncheon. 

Shara Fryer joined News Radio 740 KTRH in September 2012 as news anchor of Houston’s Morning News with Matt Patrick.  Shara is a thirty-year veteran journalist and television news anchor whose career path took her from Austin to San Antonio and then to Houston, Texas where she became the pre-eminent anchor woman on Houston’s number one television news station.

In her 27 years at Disney-owned ABC 13, Shara earned her many awards and journalist credentials for stepping outside the anchor desk, from Jerusalem to Rome to London and across the U.S., covering top stories of the day, political campaigns,  special events, and getting the hard-to-get interviews for her popular newsmaker profiles. 


Her  “Up Close and Personal” segments and Emmy Award-winning “IN FOCUS” documentaries included exclusive interviews with Presidents, Foreign Heads of State, well-known Texans, and celebrities of national and international renown, such as Richard Nixon, Shimon Peres, Jihan Sadat, the Dalai Lama, George H. W. Bush, Lady Bird Johnson, Nellie Connally,  David Brinkley, Barbara Walters, Audrey Hepburn, and Charles, Ninth Earl Spencer, to name a few.
