  1. Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com is reporting Karina Segovia is leaving Telemundo 47 KTMD-TV Houston & heading to sister station Telemundo 40 Rio Grande Valley KTLM-TV. The meteorologist joins anchor Denise Salinas on Noticias Telemundo 40 for the weekday 11:00 AM Midday newscast. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/09/karina-segovia-leaves-telemundo-houston.html
  2. Just waiting for the next train-wreck in Nashville if Innes keeps alienating folks.
  3. Good Morning HAIF family. It looks like Jason Isbell got triggered & called out Fox 26 weekday morning anchor Sally MacDonald over a possible conflict of interest, when Isbell on Twitter put MacDonald on full-blast by mentioning MacDonald's ties to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion following the artist's cancellation of a Wednesday show at the venue. Isbell's record label, Southeastern Records, tweeted a statement confirming the cancellations Tuesday evening, stating the venue wouldn't comply with the artist's updated safety precautions asking venues to require proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests for entry. https://twitter.com/SoutheasternRec/status/1425223993745944583 Soon after, Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston weekday morning anchor Sally MacDonald offered a rebuttal to Southeastern Records' claims by replying with a graphic from Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion stating the issue that led to the cancellation was timing, rather than an unwillingness on part of the venue to introduce additional safety measures. https://twitter.com/SallyMacFox26/status/1425234853667160077 Isbell responded by strongly refuting MacDonald & the venue's version of events, stating that the owner of Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion refused to try to implement additional safety standards. Houston Twitter users were quick to note a certain link between MacDonald & the venue--namely that Sally MacDonald is the daughter of Jerry MacDonald, President & CEO of Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. https://twitter.com/Krisand74/status/1425286102353469452 https://twitter.com/JPughMI/status/1425288334671241216 Isbell also joined in on pointing out the blatant conflict of interest in reference to MacDonald & her family: https://twitter.com/JasonIsbell/status/1425283658836025347 https://www.chron.com/culture/music/article/Houston-Jason-Isbell-concert-Cynthia-Wood-Pavilion-16379190.php https://preview.houstonchronicle.com/music/jason-isbell-pushes-back-on-venue-s-reason-for-16380047 Let me know your thoughts on the situation including folks on Twitter calling out MacDonald for the potential conflict of interest.
  4. According to Elita Loresca, we're going to find out who'll be the successor to Tom Koch of Ch. 13's weekday morning newscasts next week. Big question is whether it'll be Jeff Ehling or Steven Romo ?
  5. I wonder how long before Elita Loresca bails from Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston ?
  6. I've heard that Morgan & former NBC 2 KPRC-TV Meteorologist Britta Merwin are now at Fox News.
  7. Keaton Fuchs has been named as News Director of ABC 13 KTRK-TV Houston by Wendy Granato, President & General Manager of KTRK-TV, to whom he will report. Fuchs will be responsible for leading the Eyewitness News Team for ABC 13's News & Weather leader. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/07/keaton-fuchs-named-abc13-ktrk-news.html Any thoughts on Fuchs being named News Director for ABC 13 KTRK-TV Houston ? A.) Love It B.) Hate It C.) Wait & See Approach
  8. I figured Myers was going to stick around in Houston & wouldn't be surprised if he does the weekend weather with Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston. Now the question is who'll take over the Traffic anchor duties on weekday mornings ?
  9. Here's more of Hecker being interviewed on why she's calling out Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston: Ivory's official YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/IvoryHecker
  10. Check this out on Hecker's interview with Project Veritas: Hecker has her own YouTube Channel, which I've subscribed last year. She's also on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
  11. According to the Houston Chronicle, it appears Hecker got suspended then after more developments, they fired her altogether. It also seems like she had no intention of working with Fox News Channel either & had been plotting to bolt from Fox 26 since last August.
  12. Howdy everyone. Unless y'all have been living under rocks during the early part of the Summer, Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston Reporter Ivory Hecker announced during the 5:00 PM Newscast yesterday evening that she's teaming up with Project Veritas in blowing the whistle on her own company. Something tells me Fox 26 GM & Executive VP D'Artanian Bebel is NOT thrilled with Hecker's Jack Bauer-esque rogue-ness including Hecker's accusations that Fox Corporation has been muzzling her from telling the truth to the viewers: https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/06/ivory-hecker-fox-26-project-veritas.html The Houston Chronicle's title has Hecker claiming she's been muzzled by Fox 26 & the higher-ups of that station: https://www.chron.com/culture/tv/article/Houston-Fox-26-TV-Ivory-Hecker-Project-Veritas-16249035.php https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-Fox-26-reporter-Ivory-Hecker-alleges-16247795.php Any thoughts on Hecker going off-script on live TV yesterday & the ramifications if she'll keep her job at Fox 26 ? Because once again, I've got a feeling D'Art either didn't know she was going to do this OR found out like everyone else & is PISSED off.
  13. Now Ilona Carson is leaving Ch. 13: I should note Carson's last day on the newsdesk will be on June 18th. https://abc13.com/abc13-anchor-ilona-carson-ktrk-anchors-news-retiring-leaving-to-spend-time-with-family/10744987/ https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/06/ilona-carson-to-leave-abc13-ktrk-news.html
  14. For those, who missed Koch's final signoff from Ch. 13 on last Friday, May 28th: Big question is who'll replace Koch in weekday morning newscast for Ch. 13 ? I feel like a house-cleaning is still ongoing over there. A.) Jeff Ehling B.) Steven Romo C.) The Field
