  1. You would be wrong. And they're only getting cheaper these days. Too much competition. Everyone wants to be the face of the news. No one wants to go through all the hard work of being a good journalist.

    Does anyone know where Illona Carson has been? Gina Gaston has been her fill in for the past 3-4 weeks on Eyewitness News at 4. Maybe Vacation?

  2. You're right, that's what I was thinking about, they read over it and tweak it. So what do anchors do besides read the news and try to put a few jokes in to make the news flow? How much money do they make? How much do the meteorologist make? How much do reporters make?

    I would think most news personalities in the top 15 media markets make 6 figures or more per year.

  3. Does anyone know the real reason behind News Stations not giving public tours? I was at KTRK ABC 13 today and they said because of security reasons they are not allowed to give tours of their studios. I just don't understand, Whats the worst that could happen. I could be totally wrong but I'm just wondering.

  4. Laura Whitley's last report aired yesterday on ABC 13. She will apparently be spending more time with her children and husband. I will miss her alot. She was one of my favorite reporters. She also did a fantastic job as a fill in anchor Sunday mornings as well before Katy McCall came. Hope she decides to come back one day.

  5. If anyone has passed by, construction on Ulrich Intermediate School is going well, they already have the main drop-off loop and a portion of the parking lot laid now. One fact I pointed out before I believe was how close this school will be to Spring Cypress Rd. There really isn't that much space between the parking lot and Spring Cypress Rd. Krimmel has a large amount of space from the school and FM 2920, but that plot of land is totally different from the Ulrich site.

    Construction on Mueller Elementary School is really going pretty fast also. Construction crews have bricked a large portion if not all of the building. The entire parking lot was laid months ago. The tin roofing has also been laid, and it is green just like the roofing on Frank Elementary. Unlike Ulrich, Mueller sits in the middle of knowhere behing Krimmel.

  6. How do you know so much? Is that what you are going to school for? You want to be an anchor? How do you know your internship that far out?

    Yes, I will attend either University of Houston or Sam Houston State University for a BA degree in Broadcast Journalism, and yes ABC 13 takes interns every year. I've already done a great deal of studying about this field of work, so I kind of know alot, but still way more for me to know and learn.

  7. Do you work at channel 13?

    I thought they would get one of the reporters to do it since they had been doing it for awhile.

    What about the 11:00am weekday news? no permanent anchors for the past 2-3 years.

    Actually I don't work for ABC 13 yet, but I will begin my Internship with them in 2011.

    They could promote a reporter to be an anchor but some reporters dont want to be anchors due to comfort zone or other reasons, and then if they make a reporter an anchor the station would have to hire a new reporter apposed to keeping people in their current positions and just hiring a reporter/anchor whose already done both sides of the job.

    As far as a permanent anchor for the 11am newscast, they may have not found the perfect person. Sometimes stations look for a specific look. IE: Hair, Race, Man-Woman, Size, Experience especially doing a weekday show.

  8. I hated to see all of those trees go, and the last thing this area needs is another strip or shopping center, but it sure would be nice to have restaurant that doesn't serve its food in a drive-thru. Something is taking shape towards the front, that looks restaurant-ish.

    I'm also hoping for a grocery store on the southbound side, since the HEB at FM 2920 apparently was scrapped awhile back.

    The new HEB planned for FM 2920 and I45 is apparently now planned for FM 2920 and Hannover Woods Drive across from the new Wachovia Bank and Auto Zone.

    NEW HEB on FM 2920
