  1. Tom Koch & Melanie Lawson celebrated their 37 year anniversaries with Ch. 13, both beginning their careers with the Houston ABC O&O Station on September 17th, 1982. Gina Gaston is celebrating 25 years with Ch. 13: beginning her first stint in 1992 as the Weekday Morning Anchor with Koch & later anchored with MSNBC NYC, NY St in 1999. She later returned to Ch. 13 in 2001, where she's been ever since. Thoughts on Koch, Lawson & Gaston's respective anniversaries with Ch. 13 ? https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/09/abc13-ktrk-anniversaries.html https://www.facebook.com/TomKochABC13/ https://www.facebook.com/ABC13MelanieLawson/
  2. Last night was the final day for NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston Weekend Sports Reporter Lainie Fritz, who left the station after 3 years. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/08/lainie-fritz-leaves-kprc-2.html https://www.facebook.com/mcguff713/ Fritz's Instagram Page, where she explained her departure & possible future plans: Like to hear your thoughts on Fritz leaving NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston.
  3. CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston has hired WCNC-TV Charlotte, NC Weekend News Anchor Xavier Walton as the TEGNA Station's new #HTownRush Morning Anchor. "We are excited to have him on board," KHOU President & GM Robert Springer, told mikemcguff.com. Springer adds Walton wants to move to Houston, to not only report the news, but also to make it a better place to live through his community involvement. With Walton taking over Weekday Mornings, current #HTownRush Weekday Morning News Anchor Lisa Hernandez is moved to the Weekend Evenings, where she will be doing weekend evening newscasts alongside Ron Trevino, who currently anchors the weekend evening timeslot alone. However, Trevino will continue to solo anchor the Saturday Morning News. Springer also told mikemcguff.com that the TEGNA Station is working to expand its weekend coverage with Hernandez's addition. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/08/xaiver-walton-khou-htownrush.html https://www.facebook.com/mcguff713/ Give me your thoughts on these changes & how do you think it will work out in the long-term ? A.) Love It B.) Hated It C.) Wait & See Approach
  4. Big question is whether Houston City Council will get expanded since the population has been growing non-stop in recent years.
  5. I believe CW 39 KIAH-TV Houston had a similar studio set with the downtown skyline from the late 1980s.
  6. In case you're living under a rock, longtime Houston Consumer Reporter Emily Akin has announced her retirement from FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston & in her final days on the air, is using her 40+ years of journalistic experience to share her best tips with viewers. "But before I go, I want to leave Fox 26 Houston viewers with some final consumer advice," Akin posted on Facebook. "All this week I'll focus on issues you have asked me about the most." Houston TV viewers first got to know Akin on NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston in 1995 through segments like Akin's Army, Not On That Menu, & Good Housekeeping. Akin's Army was really an army..... an army of volunteers that helped consumers across the Space City. The consumer advocate left NBC 2 in 2005. After teaching at Houston Community College (including teaching at the University of Houston), she returned to Houston TV... this time at Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston, continuing the tradition of helping viewers with Take It To Akin. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/07/emily-akin-retires-from-fox-26.html https://www.facebook.com/EmilyAkinFox26/ Thoughts on Akin's retirement from Houston TV News ?
  7. Something tells me Innes will end up at another Radio Station.
  8. Good Morning everyone. Unless you're living under a rock, looks like changes have taken place at Sports Radio 610 KILT-AM Houston... Rich Lord, the station's longtime afternoon host of "The Triple Threat" was let go alongside Mike Meltzer of the Morning Show as Sports Radio 610 is making an attempt in boosting their flagging ratings, which had imploded since 2017. Here's the new line-up: 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM "Payne & Pendergast" 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM "In the Loop" 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM "Clint & Kamla" 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM "Texans All Access" 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM "The Six Pack with Matthew Jarecki" 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM "Matthew Jarecki" Any thoughts on the new line-up at Sports Radio 610 KILT-AM Houston ? A.) Love It B.) Hated It C.) TBD https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/07/sportsradio-610-kilt-hosts-talk-changes.html http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/amp/Rich-Lord-let-go-from-Houston-SportsRadio-610-14105838.php
  9. In what many considered as no surprise, Houston City Councilwoman At-Large 4 Amanda Edwards (D) declared her campaign for the United States Senate yesterday, jumping into what's likely to be considered a crowded Dem Primary with State Senator Royce West (D-Dallas) likely to declare his US Senate campaign sometime this month. Edwards will finish out the remainder of her 1st 4-year term on the Houston City Council, which expires on January 2nd, 2020 & won't seek reelection to another 4 years to her At-Large City Council seat. Thoughts on how Edwards (assuming she wins the Dem Primary) will do against United States Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), who'll be a strong favorite in his reelection bid for a 4th 6-year term in November 2020 ? Remember, Cornyn has been undefeated in every single election: Primaries, Runoffs & General Elections since 1984. https://www.texastribune.org/2019/07/18/amanda-edwards-houston-council-member-challenge-senator-john-cornyn/ https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-Councilwoman-Amanda-Edwards-announces-run-14105641.php https://www.statesman.com/news/20190718/amanda-edwards-joins-crowded-democratic-primary-challenging-john-cornyn
  10. In a surprise to nobody, former Houston City Councilwoman At-Large 2 Sue Lovell (D) jumped into the crowded campaign for Houston Mayor, some think she might take more progressive votes away from incumbent Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) in November. Any thoughts on how Lovell's entry will impact the overall contest ? https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Former-Houston-councilwoman-Sue-Lovell-running-14063773.php https://theleadernews.com/lovell-running-for-mayor/
  11. How's that going lately ?
