  1. Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com is reporting that after 22 years with the ABC O&O Station, sports anchor Bob Slovak (whom I strongly felt was wrongly passed over for the Sports Director job a few years back) is leaving Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston's sports department after more than two decades. Slovak joined Ch. 13 in 1998 as the sports reporter alongside longtime Houston sports anchors Tim Melton & the late Bob Allen. In 2013, when Melton suffered a stroke & had to retire from the TV biz, Slovak moved from sports reporter to weekend sports anchor. Before coming to Ch. 13, Sl
  2. Beloved Ch. 13 reporter Deborah Wrigley is leaving the ABC O&O Station on September 4th according to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com & other social media. "Deborah is an icon of broadcasting & a true journalist Houstonians will always remember," News Director Rehan Aslam said in an internal memo obtained by mikemcguff.com. "We wanted to thank Deborah for her countless stories that made such an impact on thousands & thousands of people. She served our city & our communities with grace & professionalism." The memo said Wrigley started with the station 42 years a
  3. 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/
  4. It's been 16 days & nobody hasn't seen or heard from Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston Weekday Morning Anchor Samica Knight, who hasn't been on the air in weeks, nor has she posted to her Social Media accounts since January 7th. According to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com, he also hadn't heard anything regarding Knight's whereabouts. McGuff also mentioned several Ch. 13 viewers had been emailing him, hitting him up with questions from those concerned about Knight's whereabouts. From what I can tell, Brhe Berry & Mayra Moreno had been filing-in for Knight on the weekday morning newscast
  5. Tom Koch & Melanie Lawson celebrated their 37 year anniversaries with Ch. 13, both beginning their careers with the Houston ABC O&O Station on September 17th, 1982. Gina Gaston is celebrating 25 years with Ch. 13: beginning her first stint in 1992 as the Weekday Morning Anchor with Koch & later anchored with MSNBC NYC, NY St in 1999. She later returned to Ch. 13 in 2001, where she's been ever since. Thoughts on Koch, Lawson & Gaston's respective anniversaries with Ch. 13 ? https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/09/abc13-ktrk-anniversarie
  6. Good afternoon HAIF bloggers. Unless some of y'all have been living under a rock or a secret beach retreat in the West Coast, Ch. 13 brought in Brheanna Berry to join the ABC O&O Station back in early February. She came from News 3 WTKR-TV Norfolk, VA (she had been there since August of 2017). Plus Berry worked with KELO-TV Sioux Falls, SD as the Morning Anchor/Reporter from March 2016 to 2017; she was also the station's heathbeat reporter. She began her TV News career at KLFY-TV News 10 Lafayette, LA as the Weekend Anchor/Reporter/Multimedia Journalist from November 2014 to M
  7. Ch. 13 Reporter Christine Dobbyn is leaving the Houston ABC O&O Station after nearly 14 years... According to mikemcguff.com & the Houston Chronicle, Dobbyn said on Twitter that she's hanging up "my reporting cleats" to pursue a new chapter in life. From what McGuff heard, Dobbyn's "new chapter in life" doesn't include the TV Biz. Plus in her LinkedIn profile, she's in the middle of getting a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business. Dobbyn has been with Ch. 13 since 2005 & before she came to Housto

  9. Former Ch. 13 Weather Meteorologist Casey Curry has a new job..... as the Community Relations Director for Alliant Group: the company bills itself as the premier provider of specialty tax services. Earlier this morning, Curry appeared on CW 39's "Morning Dose" TV Show to promote the 2019 Alliant Group Blue Heart Fund STEM scholarship program. https://www.allliantgroup.com/about-us/our-directors/casey-curry/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/01/casey-curry-and-sharron-melton-reunite.html Any thoughts of Casey's new job ?

  10. Ladies & Gentlemen.... guess who's BACK BABY: the legendary Ch. 13-ista Dave Ward.... He's returning to the ABC O&O Station & launching a new segment with Ch. 13 called "Dave Ward's Houston", the weekly feature, which launches in September, will be taking a look back each week at a topic in Bayou City history that even natives like myself might not be familiar with. "I have thought about doing this for quite some time & mainly because there are whole generations of young people in Houston who aren't aware of some of the history of this great city & how we got he
  11. Former Ch. 13 KTRK-TVHouston Eyewitness News Weekend Anchor Natasha Barrett is now working for the City of Baytown as the Strategic Communications Manager according to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2018/11/natasha-barrett-joins-city-of-baytown.html?m=1

  13. Looks like the Ch. 13 Eyewitness News 10:00 PM Newscast has gotten a little lighter in the load.... After 5 years doing the 10:00 PM Newscast, Carson decided to cut back on her heavy schedule.... Now according to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com., he's been getting viewer emails & tips that Carson had left the 10:00 PM Newscast & found out Carson had posted this back in early September. However, you'll still get to see Carson on the 4:00 PM & 6:30 PM Newscasts though. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2018/11/why-ilona-carson-is-no-longer-on-10pm.html

  16. Sad news to report to everyone: former Ch. 13 Chief Meteorologist Ed Brandon passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. He first joined Ch. 13 in 1972 after doing radio stints in Austin, Longview & his native Texarkana. Brandon continued serving as the Chief Meteorologist until the early Spring of 1989, when he checked into rehab for substance abuse issues: following this, the ABC O&O Station hired Joe Diaz from Albuquerque, NM to serve as the Chief Meteorologist until Ch. 13 rehired Brandon back in 1990, where he continued until his retirement in May of 2007.
