Ron Corning, the long-time host of WFAA’s early morning wakeup show, Daybreak, is joining the popular new home lifestyle show Hot On! Homes as co-host. Corning joins Hot On! Homes after a successful 8-year run on the ABC affiliate’s morning show. During Ron’s time with WFAA, he provided outstanding coverage for both local and national events in the studio and on location. His community outreach was impressive, hosting or appearing at more than 200 local charitable events since 2011.

About joining Hot On!, Ron said, “I left WFAA to give myself the chance to branch out and take on new worthwhile projects that interest me. Shortly after leaving Daybreak, my dear friend Alexa Conomos and I reunited for a podcast, Morning After With Ron and Alexa, to focus on interesting or fun cultural topics. When Hot On! Homes called to co-host the show with Natalie Woods I was very intrigued. I’d been familiar with the show almost since I arrived in Dallas and have enjoyed watching it over the years. Real estate is a hobby of mine, and I was a realtor in Los Angeles, so it looked like a perfect marriage! Natalie and I have also worked together at charitable events in the past, so I knew we’d have a blast. Hot On! Homes is exactly the type of new opportunity that I could never have done while at the station. I’m looking forward to becoming a part of this well-loved local brand and becoming part of the team that delivers the show to home shoppers across Texas.”

Natalie Woods is eager to appear on-screen with her new co-host, “I’ve always loved working alongside Ron. He’s such a pro, but we still manage to have a lot of fun, keep things moving, and we stay on point. His perspective is a little different than mine, and that has always helped us play off each other and keep things interesting. I know our viewers are going to love watching Ron each week.”

Tom Bevins, president of Hot On! Homes remarked, “The opportunity to add a great talent like Ron Corning to Hot On! Homes rarely presents itself, and when it does, you have to do all you can to make it happen. The stars really aligned for this union and we jumped at the chance. We’re honored to add Ron to the Hot On! family and are excited to bring his wonderful perspective, humor, and insight about new homes, communities, and new home shopping to our viewers.”
