  1. Ladies & Gentlemen including longtime Ch. 13 viewers, starting August 3rd, longtime weekday morning meteorologist Casey Curry will leave the weekday morning newscasts & switch places with current 11:00am/4:00pm meteorologist Travis Herzog, according to the ABC O&O station! Curry joined Ch. 13's weekday morning newscast in August of 2006 replacing Doug Brown (RIP). According to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com, she's a very big deal on the McGuff Blog over the years. Herzog, a graduate of Texas A&M University, joined Ch. 13 about 1 month before Curry arrived, he came from KTBX-TV
  2. Recently as last month, people have been asking as to why is Sharron Melton (Ch. 13's weekday morning news anchor) being downgraded to just a "field anchor" ? Melton was removed from the morning anchor desk (Elissa Rivas and sometimes Samica Knight have been doing the weekday morning newscasts with Tom Koch) and now reporting in the field (still doing it as of September 26th today). This has resulted in many angry viewers emailing the station or others like Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com for answers. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/08/sharron-melton-ktrk-abc13-field-

  17. Ladies & Gentlemen, Houston TV viewers will be losing Karla Barguiarena AGAIN! According to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com, Barguiarena has been working with the ABC O&O station since 2013.
