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 CBS 3 Bryan-College Station. Of course, majority of Ch. 13 viewers really want to know why are these changes necessary ? McGuff explains that there's been recent changes & lots of turnover at the station in recent years. Expect lots more changes as well as a brand new studio set (note they've updated the set recently) including the fact the station's once-dominant weekday morning newscast hasn't been dominating since November of 2013 as other rival news stations have been upping their game in surpassing Ch. 13. Since then, KPRC-TV (NBC 2) had rose to the top in terms of being #1 in the weekday morning news shows with the morning news show winner being Fox 26 KRIV-TV! The demotion of then-weekday morning anchor Sharron Melton to a Field Anchor (who eventually left the station for good) as well as the retirement of longtime Traffic anchor Don Nelson have played major roles in these constant changes. Another theory is that the station maybe feeling to add one more male on their weekday morning newscasts since Nelson was replaced by Katherine Whaley. As usual, calls to Ch. 13's higher-ups & management haven't been returned to McGuff or anyone else. Plus, Dish customers are now complaining of a yellow screen in place or over KTRK-TV. Many have complained about the situation on Social Media. Meanwhile, Dish reported that this was Ch. 13's problem! Any reaction to the swaps ? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/07/casey-curry-travis-herzog-ktrk-abc13-swap-switch.html
WOW: I never saw this one coming! Mayra Moreno is coming back home to the Bayou City, leaving KENS 5 San Antonio, where she's been with the TEGNA station since 2011. She was hired there as a reporter, eventually being promoted to Saturday morning anchor. Moreno started her journalism career with KRVG-TV in the Rio Grande Valley! Ladies & Gentlemen, welcome Mayra back to the Bayou City & wish her well at Ch. 13! http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/08/mayra-moreno-joins-ktrk-abc13-from-kens-5.html http://www.facebook.com/mayramorenoreporter?fref=nf
