Blue Dogs posted a topic in Houston TelevisionLadies and gentlemen, here are some clips from some weekend newscasts of KTRK Ch. 13 Eyewitness News back in the day and one of them, covers the Rendezvous Houston concert during the week of March 31-April 5, 1986: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Db6dRG0jgHQ Ch. 13 Eyewitness News opens/news reports at 1:32, 53:11-54:37 and again from 59:37-1:02:52 I've noticed in the 1:32 mark, they had Shara Fryer in the 6pm newscasts, I believe she joined the 6pm news in 1986 (besides already doing Live at 5). Here's some of the weekend news anchors of KTRK Ch. 13 and give input to tell where are and what they're doing now: Van Hackett (1980-1987): Reporter/Anchor: did Live at 5 for a brief time before moving to the weekends around 1983 and stayed there until leaving the station in the summer of 1987. Diana Fallis: the station's first African American female weekend anchor for several years. Jim Rosenfeld (1983-1989): Reporter/Anchor: replaced Hackett in the summer of 1987 in the weekend newscasts and co-anchored with Debbi Johnson between 1987 until the spring of 1989. Alan Hemberger (RIP): (1989-1998): Replaced Rosenfeld on the weekends during the spring of 1989 and was there until 1990, when he was moved to Live at 5 and anchored on the 5pm weekday newscasts until 1998. Then briefly worked in Austin before moving back to Houston to work for KIAH-TV CW 39. Debbi Johnson (1979 ?-1991): Reporter and later weekend anchor: replaced Melanie Lawson in the summer of 1987 (who moved to Live at 5) and co-anchored the weekend newscasts with Jim Rosenfeld (1987-1989), Alan Hemberger (1989-1990) and Bob Boudreaux (1990-1991). Minerva Perez (1991-2007): Co-anchored weekend newscasts with Bob Boudreaux (1991-2001) and later co-anchored Mid-Day newscasts until leaving in 2007. Tim Melton (1981-2013): Weekend sports anchor until his retirement due to health problems Ed Brandon (1972-2007): Did weekend weather reports alongside weekdays. Roland Galvan (1986-1988): Briefly did weekend weather reports for Ch. 13 before moving to KPRC-TV NBC 2 If I've left anyone out, let me know and you can post some old videos from the 70s-80s of KTRK Ch. 13 weekend newscasts.
