  6. Looks like CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston has an updated logo in case you've been living under a glacier.... Besides their new home at Avenida in Downtown, they also updated their logo as well. According to Mike McGuff of, it looks like CBS 11 is keeping up with the times as they're making recent changes to their Weekday Morning Show & other developments. Newscast Studio reported CBS 11 began using their new logo on Social Media. Interesting to see if the other TEGNA TV Stations across the United States have changed or updated their logos including graphics packages as well. How do y'all love the new updated logo & graphics package of CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston ? A.) Love It B.) Hate It C.) Wait & See Approach
  7. I noticed that Jack Yates High School recently got a new Principal in Tiffany Guillory. The big question is whatever happened to Kenneth Davis ? If anybody who is an alumnus of Yates High School knows the situation. Let me know what happened ?

  9. Good Morning HAIF Family. Looks like changes are taking place at Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston. The new Weekday Morning Newscast (4:00 AM to 6:00 AM) "Wake Up With SallyMac & Lina" had debuted this morning with Sally MacDonald & Lina De Florias (who left KTVK/KPHO-TV Phoenix to come to Houston).

Hate It C.) TBD
