In case you're living under a rock, longtime Houston Consumer Reporter Emily Akin has announced her retirement from FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston & in her final days on the air, is using her 40+ years of journalistic experience to share her best tips with viewers. "But before I go, I want to leave Fox 26 Houston viewers with some final consumer advice," Akin posted on Facebook. "All this week I'll focus on issues you have asked me about the most." Houston TV viewers first got to know Akin on NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston in 1995 through segments like Akin's Army, Not On That Menu, & Good Housekeeping. Akin's Army was really an army..... an army of volunteers that helped consumers across the Space City. The consumer advocate left NBC 2 in 2005. After teaching at Houston Community College (including teaching at the University of Houston), she returned to Houston TV... this time at Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston, continuing the tradition of helping viewers with Take It To Akin. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/07/emily-akin-retires-from-fox-26.html https://www.facebook.com/EmilyAkinFox26/ Thoughts on Akin's retirement from Houston TV News ?
In trying to keep up with Ch. 13's consumer reporting and other stations doing the same, KHOU-TV CBS 11 is giving the consumer reporting gig to reporter Tiffany Craig, who starts the job this month. Executive news director Phil Bruce on Craig's new position: "Tiffany has done great work for us as a general assignments reporter, but she's already an old hand at consumer investigative reporting--that was Tiffany's assignment in Mobile before she came here and she did some award winning work," Bruce said in an internal station memo. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/10/khou-11-tiffany-craig-consumer-reporter.html Reaction from anyone on the new opportunity for Craig ?
