  1. Has anyone noticed that the Extra Points show (which used to be hosted by Bob Allen, Tim Melton and Bob Slovak), has now looked different this year because I've noticed that the guests such as Ralph Cooper, Charlie Pallilo, Kenny Hand, etc., haven't been heard from since like last year. What's going on? http://www.ktrk.com/

"I am excited to be joining a great team of professionals that are established in the market," Vazquez told mikemcguff.com. "Together we are going to do some great things and grow the station." http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/07/jerry-vazquez-ktmd-telemundo-houston-news-director.html http://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/fates-and-fortunes/vazquez-named-ktmd-houston-vp-news/132940 Any reaction on Vazquez leaving Ch. 13 to tackle the news director gig at KTMD ?

  4. Exclusive from MikeMcGuff.com, this afternoon, KTRK Ch 13 news director Dave Strickland announced to the staff in an email he's leaving the ABC-owned station. Rumors have been swirling the last few weeks that Strickland was leaving the station. He hadn't been at the station during that time. In the memo, Strickland cited the job was affecting his family, life and personal relationships. Strickland was news director for 14 years. He started at KTRK-TV as an intern, worked his way up to sports producer, then news director. In between his KTRK time, Strickland was news director of WAVY-TV 10 Norfolk, VA. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/07/ktrk-abc13-news-director-dave-strickland-resigns.html?m=1 Reaction from this development of Strickland leaving Ch. 13 ladies and gentlemen?

  6. With Courtney Zubowski and Katherine Whaley leaving KHOU-TV for "new opportunities". There's been rumors going on that some people don't like the Gannett ownership at KHOU and are leaving the station, changing things such as forcing reporters and others to carry their own stuff to do news reports, kicking out longtime people, who've been at formerly-owned Belo stations for 2 or 3 decades. There's also the part of demoting weekday or weeknight anchors to sideline reporters, which is considered an insult. What's y'all take on the ongoing turnover at Gannett stations such as KHOU ?

She appears to be OK now based on the fact she took to Facebook to recount the event. Wrigley's words of advice: "drive defensively!" http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/06/deborah-wrigley-in-accident-ktrk-abc13.html?m=1 Reaction from anyone on Wrigley's accident?
  9. According to Mike McGuff, longtime anchorman Dave Ward celebrated his 75th birthday on Tuesday, May 6th.

Before joining KRIV-TV, Atkinson came to Houston in 1982 and worked for KPRC-TV NBC 2 for several years before working for the Harris County Sheriff's Department. McGuff also noted that Atkinson hadn't been seen on the air since last year.
