  1. Good afternoon everyone. Hoping all of you are staying safe out there with this international pandemic, etc.,, Anyway, here are some videos for nostalgia & everyone to reminisce the Good Ole Days: Metromedia (later Fox 26) 26 KRIV-TV Houston from 1983: Metromedia 26 Program Line-up (either Spring or Summer 1983): Notice the studio set behind Ginger Casey during what was then Metromedia 26 newscast from 1983. (Sports Update with Dave Sheehan from 1983) Metromedia 26 Promo from 1983:
  2. I NEVER liked or trusted the PRC from the get-go! Not shocked about the developments that they were SPYING on people, businesses, etc., in the Houston Metroplex. Might be a good time to restart diplomatic relations with Taiwan.
  3. Forest Park The Woodlands Funeral Home is handling arrangements for the late CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston Legal Analyst Gerald Treece: https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/the-woodlands-tx/thomas-treece-9260412
  4. My deepest condolences to the Treece family & the CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston family. I also should note Treece served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War.
  5. Looks like Russ Lewis & his wife, Sally Ramirez are retiring & moving back to OR: https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2020/06/russ-lewis-to-retire-from-khou.html?m=1 More on Sally leaving: https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2020/06/sally-ramirez-to-leave-khou-11.html?m=1

  7. Meteorologist Erika Lopez is heading back to ABC 24 KVUE-TV Austin, becoming the TEGNA station's Chief Meteorologist. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2020/06/erika-lopez-kvue-austin.html?m=1
  8. I think he's moving to either NV or TX. You can bet both NV Governor Steve Sisolak (D) & TX Governor Greg Abbott (R) are on the recruiting push to get Telsa to move to their respective states
  9. Sad news from the Ch. 13 Eyewitness News family. Photojournalist Willie Dixon died last night at the age of 52. He joined the ABC O&O station in 2006 from WFTV in Orlando, FL. Dixon was also a graduate of Alabama State University, where he played trombone in the ASU Hornet Marching Band. https://abc13.com/society/remembering-abc13-photojournalist-willie-dixon/6130883/ https://www.insragram.com/p/B_dMdmPjNkA/
  10. Just found out NBC 2 Weekday Morning Anchor Taniya Wright is no longer with the station after just 9 months (she joined in August of 2019). According to multiple sources, no other information is available yet. Wright anchored the weekday morning & midday newscasts until today. No information about her future plans were available or disclosed. I should note Wright was on today's morning newscast earlier today, but not in the midday newscast for some reason. Thoughts on Wright's departure from NBC 2 & the revolving door at the station ? https://mikem
  11. Good afternoon HAIF family. Hoping everyone stays safe during the COVID-19 crisis. In case anybody wants to go back to memory lane, here are some oldies from the 1980s: Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston from May 3rd, 1989: Live at 5 newscast & 6:00 PM newscast (the latter is included in this clip).
  12. For those, who don't know yet: Laura Ward, the wife of former Ch. 13 Eyewitness News Legendary TV Anchor Dave Ward, is having health problems.
  13. Any new developments on the TX Education Agency's bid in taking over Houston ISD ?
  14. I wonder if this was in response to the new building NBC 2 KPRC-TV got ? Big question is whether Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston will get a new home ?
