  4. Yesterday, Fox 26 unveiled their brand-new studio set with a larger skyline in the background behind the anchors. It looks somewhat similar to Ch. 13's news studio set (that debuted in the fall of 2015). How do y'all like Fox 26's new studio set ? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/01/pics-fox-26-kriv-debuts-new-set-2017.html A.) Love It B.) Hate It C.) Wait & See
  5. After 26 years with KRIV-TV Fox 26, Reporter Andrea Watkins has decided to call it quits & going out on top. She's a no-nonsense reporter, who easily handled the hard & aggressive news all the way stories on how to save consumers money. Watkins also posted on her FB page: "Just letting you know that today is my last day at Fox 26. I've enjoyed 26 great years at the station but it's time to relax a bit, enjoy more time with my family, & look for new adventures down the road. It's been a great pleasure & privilege to tell the stories I have told over the years. Thank you to all for allowing me to share your information, concerns, & experiences with the people in the Houston area & beyond! I wish all the best to the wonderful friends I've met in my journey. I'm sure we will find ways to stay in touch." According to former Fox 26 reporter Lanny Griffith (former co-worker of Watkins for 15 years), "I have never seen anyone attack a subject like Andrea Watkins," Griffith told mikemcguff.com., "Her interviews were piercing & relentless especially when it came to elected officials. She kept the flames turned up under their feet. They don't make 'em like her anymore." In 2011, Watkins had battled breast cancer & was working part-time. Ladies & Gentlemen: Wish Andrea congratulations on her 26 years of service to Fox 26 & her future endeavors! http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/09/andrea-watkins-to-leave-fox-26-kriv.html
  6. After spending 10 years with Fox 26, weekend anchor & reporter Chris Stipes is leaving the station. His wife, Elissa Rivas works for Ch. 13 KTRK-TV (ABC), who was moved from weekend morning newscasts to reporter & sometimes doing traffic. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/07/chris-stipes-leaves-fox-26-kriv.html?m=1 Reaction of Stipes leaving Fox 26 as apparently, the revolving door over there continues!
  7. WOW, this is something I didn't see coming: Fox 26 5pm & 10pm anchor Don Teague is no longer at the station, according to several sources. It's also reported Teague was escorted out of the station last week! http://www.chron.com/entertainment/celebrities/article/TV-news-anchor-Don-Teague-out-the-door-at-KRIV-TV-6842886.php http://www.inusanews.com/article/16144141509/tv-don-teague-fox-houston-kriv-tv-anchor http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/02/don-teague-suddenly-exits-fox-26-kriv.html I want everyone's reaction to Teague's sudden exit from Fox 26 & the details on what resulted in him getting the boot!
  8. This development completely took me by surprise... Fox 26 KRIV-TV news reporter Kristine Galvan has left the station after 10 years. On Tuesday, in her personal Facebook page, Galvan explained why she's leaving Fox 26: "As some of y'all know, I had a right knee scope in January to fix a badly torn meniscus, medial ligament tear & lateral ligament tear. 'On the job' recovery was difficult-especially during cold snaps & the Houston rodeo." But the most interesting part of the story is where Galvan mentioned the changing state of TV news industry, particularly the rise of multimedia journalists. In Houston, they've hired very few in the past year. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/celebrities/article/Longtime-Fox-26-reporter-calls-it-quits-cites-6305244.php https://www.facebook.com/KristineGalvan For any Fox 26 viewers out there, want to hear your reaction on Galvan's departure from Fox 26 after a decade! Later this month, she'll turn 37 years-old!
  9. Fox 26 switching folks all over the place non-stop. Fox 26 Traffic Authority Michelle Merhar has a lot of new things in her professional life. First, a new traffic system with improved on-air maps. Then, she was named the new 4am and 5am newscast anchor weekdays alongside another new addition to the morning news show, Rita Garcia. Merhar replaced Chris Stipes, who moved to the weekend newscasts. In other Fox 26 news, Tom Zizka is back on the news desk. The business reporter for the station has been recently filing in in the later weekday newscasts and filing in for Jose Grinan over the next few weeks (hmmm...I smell house cleaning here). Arnold Diaz and his investigative unit has been CUT from WNYW-TV Fox 5 New York, NY State: so goodbye to Fox 26 Investigates as folks have wondered what's happened to Fox 26 Investigative reporter Randy Wallace. Fox Television rep says Wallace is doing general assignments reporting now at Fox 26. His biography on the station's website was changed from "investigative reporter" to "reporter." Ford Atkinson hasn't been heard from in awhile now and hasn't been on the air since mid-December 2013: both of Atkinson's Twitter & Facebook accounts have stalled at the same time too. Spokesperson at the station has said that he's "on vacation." What is y'all reaction to the new changes going on at Fox 26 ?
  10. I found some clips from Fox 26 and their news package called, "Fox O&O News Package", I believed they used a different version of this music theme during their 7pm newscast back in 1986. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ4wELLM8ww Here's another from Dailymotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x82q8o_kriv-houston-25-yrs-of-news-on-fox_news In the early seconds of this clip, you'll see the first newscasts from 1983 and I believe 1986 or 1987. Does anyone have the full newscast of Fox 26 from November 1992 ?
  11. Mike McGuff and Robert Feder both reporting that Fox 26 entertainment reporter Jake Hamilton is leaving the station after 4 years and heading to WFLD-TV, Fox 32 Chicago. Hamilton, a native of Seabrook, Texas, who attended the University of Houston, began hosting the film review segment "Jake's Takes" for KHOU-TV, the CBS affiliate in Houston. He later shifted to KRIV-TV, Fox 26 in 2009. A note posted on Friday, had appeared on Hamilton's Facebook page about his hiring at Fox 32 subsequently disappeared. http://www.robertfeder.com/2013/10/27/fox-hires-two-more-out-of-town/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2013/10/another-fox-26-er-to-chicago-2-tx-tv.html Any thoughts on Hamilton leaving Fox 26 for WFLD-TV, Fox 32 Chicago ?
  12. After 3 years at Fox 26, morning news anchor Natalie Bomke is leaving KRIV-TV and heading back home to Illinois and co-anchoring the weekday morning newscast at WFLD-TV Fox 32 Chicago with Dawn Hasbrouck, according to the Houston Chronicle. She'll also be reuniting with former Fox 26 news director Tom Doerr. Doerr moved to Chicago earlier this year and is the current news director of WFLD.
