  1. An interesting bit of trivia about Ted Shaw that I didn't know until years after he had retired: He actually was the weatherman on duty when his station in Wichita Falls covered an F5 tornado live for viewers in 1964. It was one of, if not the first, instances of this happening anywhere.
  2. They do have a morning newscast, and I think they had been hiring for a few local reporter/producer spots as of late. The latter may be to supplement Nexstar's planned News Nation primetime newscast that will air on WGN America later in the year. Last I was aware, their master control was still out of Denver. They were moved there with KDAF in Dallas at the same time a number of years ago.
  3. Approved, 16-1 in favor. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-council-OKs-43M-in-tax-breaks-for-15122769.php
  4. Not to nitpick, but this sort of thing isn't a tit-for-tat proposition. Because one station gets another building, another won't just up and decide to do the same. It was widely reported that this was influenced primarily by the former location of the station on Allen Parkway. From what I understand - after Buffalo Bayou overflowed during Allison, there were discussions about installing flood gates of some sort at the site, but their corporate parent at the time (Belo) didn't go along with that. When Harvey flooded the building out again, their current owner (TEGNA) sought other space due to the issues with the site. As for KRIV, I don't see them moving anywhere. They have a fair amount of room even today, and the facility is only 20 years old or so.
  5. Probably this steamship that does have a place in history, espcially close to this area: https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/etl01

  7. That first rendering of Memorial Hermann Tower and the Westin says hi.
  8. Don't know what board they were using, but that last rendering in the piece sent the tower to Manhattan.
  9. Perhaps the Ritz Carlton plan comes back to life after a decade-plus? Even at it's shortest, it was still 53 floors. I can always dream at least...
  10. I stayed at the Homewood Suites across from this development over my last trip and was genuinely surprised by the seemingly unending line around the In-n-Out Burger. From just after opening (11A) to about 30-45 minutes before close (1:30 AM), it was fairly consistent each day of the week - minus Christmas of course. One family staying at our place seemed to be super thrilled about having survived the wait one day and came in with close to a dozen bags of food from there, eager to eat it in the dining area of the hotel. To each their own, I suppose. I'd tried it once at their location in Irving at Las Colinas and was unimpressed. Their suppliers are definitely on it though. I went out one night maybe around 2 AM for a Whataburger/Shipley's run (don't judge me!), and right behind the restaurant was an 18-wheeler already unloading stuff for the next day. I should be back in the area in June. I'm curious to see how much the hype may have faded by that point.
