  1. Here's the latest on the Lisa Vaughn Watch because she was supposed to return on August 17th, but that day came & went:
  2. Today was the LAST day for Rita Garcia at FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston after 6 years with the Houston FOX affiliate. Plus, Garcia will be going to FOX sister station, FOX 11 KTTV-TV Los Angeles, CA. While there's no word on what she'll be doing, someone found a Google search of video demos that Garcia was doing in early October for KTTV's "Good Day LA" Morning Show (The legendary Steve Edwards is still there from what I hear & for those, who don't remember: the "Good Day Live" TV Show, which was on FOX 26 & other FOX affiliates in the early 2000's). "She's one of the best, hard to see her go, but so happy for her bright future," said Morning Anchor Melissa Wilson. Garcia joined FOX 26 back in December of 2011 from Los Angeles, so it's a return to the City of Angels for her. The then-CBS 2 KCBS-TV Los Angeles freelance reporter joined the FOX 26 family as Weekend Anchor & Reporter. Less than 2 years later, she moved up to the weekday morning newscasts, where she's been ever since until today. The Lone Star State native began her TV News career in Welasco, TX with ABC 5 KRGV-TV. Garcia holds BA Degrees from Texas State University of San Marcos (Mass Communications & Spanish). Post your thoughts on Garcia's departure & her return to the City of Angels.
  3. Coco Dominguez has been named as the Traffic Anchor for the 5:00 PM Newscast & Lifestyle Correspondent at FOX 26, announced station VP & News Director Susan Schiller. Effective starting today, Dominguez will be serving as the Traffic Anchor for FOX 26 5:00 PM Newscast & contributing entertainment & lifestyle pieces for the "Bayou City Buzz," a segment which appears the "News Edge" at 10:00 PM. In making the announcement, Schiller stated, "In addition to providing our viewers with need to know rush-hour news, Coco will bring her versatility & unique perspective of Houston's most interesting people, places & events to our newscasts."
  4. Effective on Monday, August 21st, FOX 26 will be debuting "The News Edge" beginning at 10:00 PM, announced by station VP & News Director Susan Schiller. The Monday thru Friday half-hour newscast will be following the station's current 9:00 PM Newscast & leading into "FOX 26 News Isiah Factor: Uncensored", which will be returning weeknights at 10:30 PM. With this major expansion, the station will produce 57.5 hours of local news programming each week, more local news than any other station in the market. Kaitlin Monte (who was just named as Melinda Spaulding's successor as the station's weeknight Primetime Anchor), will be anchoring "The News Edge". This will offer viewers a fast-paced format, which will allow the audience to engage with FOX 26 on trending news & topics relevant to them via the station's social media channels. Monte will continue to anchor the 5:00 PM & 9:00 PM Newscasts alongside Jonathan Martin. Plus, "What's Your Point" will continue on Sunday mornings at 7:00 AM.
  5. Unless you've been living under a rock, it seems that Fox 26 decided to let go of Reporter/Midday anchor Scarlett Fakhar for only expressing her honest political viewpoints to friends on social media, but somebody got all uptight, getting their feelings hurt & complained to the higher-ups of Fox 26. Anyone else's thoughts on this ?
  6. Looks like the exodus of Fox 26 continues. News Director Bob Morford, after 4 years with the station, will be leaving on June 1st & going to WAFF-TV Hunstville, AL. According to sources, who told Mike McGuff of, Morford never even fully lived in Houston considering that his wife resides in TN, so he often commuted there during the weekends. He joined Fox 26 in 2012 as an assistant news director, where he was later moved up to the top job 1 year later when then-News Director Tom Doerr left for WFLD-TV Fox 32 Chicago, IL & became that station's news director there. In the meantime, an aggressive search for Morford's replacement is underway!
