  2. Sad news for viewers of CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston. Former CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston reporter John "Rucks" Russell has passed away at the age of 55 yesterday. Russell's former colleague, former CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston reporter & political analyst Doug Miller received the news from Russell's wife. On Miller's Facebook page, Miller posted a nice tribute for Russell: https://www.facebook.com/doug.miller.75033149/posts/10224020654571793 Russell worked at CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston from 2006 to 2017, when he left the station to work as the Communications Director for US Rep.

  3. CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston has hired WCNC-TV Charlotte, NC Weekend News Anchor Xavier Walton as the TEGNA Station's new #HTownRush Morning Anchor. "We are excited to have him on board," KHOU President & GM Robert Springer, told mikemcguff.com. Springer adds Walton wants to move to Houston, to not only report the news, but also to make it a better place to live through his community involvement. With Walton taking over Weekday Mornings, current #HTownRush Weekday Morning News Anchor Lisa Hernandez is moved to the Weekend Evenings, where she will be doing weekend evening newscasts alongside Ron Trevino, who currently anchors the weekend evening timeslot alone. However, Trevino will continue to solo anchor the Saturday Morning News. Springer also told mikemcguff.com that the TEGNA Station is working to expand its weekend coverage with Hernandez's addition. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/08/xaiver-walton-khou-htownrush.html https://www.facebook.com/mcguff713/ Give me your thoughts on these changes & how do you think it will work out in the long-term ?

  4. 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).
  5. There's speculation brewing that CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston might be looking for a new home. The TEGNA station had to evacuate their building during Hurricane Harvey, the station's Facebook page previously mentioned that a restoration company was working the flooded studio. However, CBS 11 KHOU-TV meteorologist Brooks Garner was asked by someone on his Facebook page on the latest developments regarding the restoration of Allen Parkway studios. Garner replied the station was looking for a new spot to call home. Even Mike McGuff of mikemcuff.com, asked the station about the possible new location search: he was then told by one of the station's representatives they will "keep in touch" when there's something to announce... which is code for MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. For now, just stay tuned on whether CBS 11 gets a new studio to call home. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/10/is-khou-11-rebuilding-or-moving.html

  8. Former Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston Weather Meteorologist Lisa Vaughn has reappeared on Houston TV today on CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston during the 12, Noon newscast.

For those who've been living under a rock, Vaughn left Fox 26 after just 2 years & last summer, she began a teaching post in the University of Houston Mathematics Department. "It's a unique position because it allows me to not only teach math, but I'm also going to be managing the entire data science master's degree program," Vaughn told mikemcguff.com back then. "So, in a way, this position is bridging together each piece of my academic & professional background." https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/02/lisa-vaughn-back-on-air-at-khou-11.html
