  1. Who saw this one coming ? After 12 1/2 years with the station, FOX 26 Evening Anchor Melinda Spaulding has announced she'll be leaving. In her Facebook page, Spaulding said she wants to spend more time with her husband & kids & doesn't want to miss another moment. https://www.facebook.com/melindaspauldingfox26/ Thoughts from anyone on Spaulding leaving FOX 26 ?
  2. Recently as last month, people have been asking as to why is Sharron Melton (Ch. 13's weekday morning news anchor) being downgraded to just a "field anchor" ? Melton was removed from the morning anchor desk (Elissa Rivas and sometimes Samica Knight have been doing the weekday morning newscasts with Tom Koch) and now reporting in the field (still doing it as of September 26th today). This has resulted in many angry viewers emailing the station or others like Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com for answers. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/08/sharron-melton-ktrk-abc13-field-
  3. Courtney Fischer has joined Ch. 13 as a reporter from Pittsburgh, PA's Action News WTAE-TV & also worked with WLEX Lexington, KY & WEHT-TV Evansville, IND., Plus, she's also an alumnus of DePaul University & native of Chicago, IL. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/08/courtney-fischer-joins-ktrk-abc13.html
  4. Looks like a former NFL cheerleader, who recently left those cheerleading gigs for the TV studios in recent years, has returned back to the Bayou City! http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/06/cathy-hernandez-joins-kprc-2.html It's on a temporary basis!
  5. Ladies & Gentlemen, Houston TV viewers will be losing Karla Barguiarena AGAIN! According to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com, Barguiarena has been working with the ABC O&O station since 2013. Since her husband, former KHOU-TV CBS 11 news director Keith Connors, got a job earlier this year at WTNH in New Haven, CT, it was quite obvious Barguiarena's days in Houston were pretty much over. Before returning to Houston, she had worked as a media relations expert for Angie's List. She also worked with KHOU-TV CBS 11 in the mid-to-late 2000s including Telemundo Houston KTMD for 5 years. Sh
  6. This development completely took me by surprise... Fox 26 KRIV-TV news reporter Kristine Galvan has left the station after 10 years. On Tuesday, in her personal Facebook page, Galvan explained why she's leaving Fox 26: "As some of y'all know, I had a right knee scope in January to fix a badly torn meniscus, medial ligament tear & lateral ligament tear. 'On the job' recovery was difficult-especially during cold snaps & the Houston rodeo." But the most interesting part of the story is where Galvan mentioned the changing state of TV news industry, particularly the
  7. Ladies & gentlemen, Sofia Ojeda from WNEP-TV Northeastern PA, has joined the weekend morning newscasts of KPRC-TV! Reaction of her taking over the weekend morning anchor job? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/03/sofia-ojeda-joins-kprc-2-weekends.html?m=1
  8. Question for everyone here: I've read numerous stories on GMs being hostile to employees of news stations over the years, but the question is Fox 26 GM D'Art Bebel the most hostile & difficult person to work with? A.) YES B.) NO C.) TBD
  9. Today, KTRK-TV Ch. 13's Sharron Melton announced on Facebook that after 8 years with the ABC O&O station, she's leaving to pursue new opportunities. According to the Houston Chronicle & MikeMcGuff.com, the news isn't a big surprise for Ch. 13 viewers, who've predicted Melton would leave the station following being demoted from the weekday morning newscasts to just a "field anchor reporter" back in October 2014, later being was replaced on the weekday mornings by Samica Knight. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/05/sharron-melton-exits-ktrk-abc13.html?m=1 http://chron.com/entertainment
  10. First, we've seen Phillip Mena leaving KPRC-TV NBC 2 for ABC News & Jeremy Diesel leaving KHOU-TV CBS 11 for the private sector. Now Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com has reported that Fox 26 reporter Maria Corrales is OUT at Fox 26 after only just 1 year with the station. McGuff also reported that Corrales' bio has been wiped clean from the Fox 26 website, her station's Facebook page deleted. Plus, there's no recent activity going on with her Twitter account. She joined Fox 26 in February 2014 after more than 8 years with Univision 45 KXLN-TV, where she worked both as a reporter & produ
  11. Looking like KPRC-TV's exodus continues. Weekend co-anchor Phillip Mena is leaving KPRC-TV after 3 years with the station & he's going to be working for ABC News. He starts his new job on May 4th.

  12. According to mikemcguff.com, Adam Bennett will be joining KHOU-TV & you can pretty much say that broadcasting the news runs in the Bennett family: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/04/adam-bennett-joins-khou-11-from-keye.html http://www.khou.com/
  13. KPRC-TV has expanded their mid-day newscasts from 11:00am to 12:30pm today, which means the Daytime lineup looks different: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/03/kprc-2-launches-noon-newscast.html http://www.click2houston.com/ Reaction on the changes at KPRC-TV ?

She made the announcement on her Facebook page according to mikemcguff.com: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/03/sonia-azad-leaves-ktrk-abc13.html?m=1 Her station biography http://abc13.com/about/newsteam/sonia-azad No word on where Sonia will end up in the next gig, but she'll let us know!

  15. Ladies & Gentlemen, we've got a new weather anchor for the weekend morning newscasts at Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston. Lindsey Day was hired by the station in helping starting your day on the station's weekend morning newscasts. She replaces Caitlin Espinosa, who left Fox 26 for health reasons and recently started her own YouTube channel earlier this year. Day comes from KOZL-TV Springfield, MO. Previously, she worked with WCTV-TV Tallahassee, FL. Her 1st day with Fox 26 on March 16th! http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/03/lindsey-day-joins-fox-26-kriv.html?m=1 http://www.myfoxhouston.com/ React
  16. KPRC viewer emails are flying into Mike McGuff's inbox. Why ? The "KPRC Local 2" tagline that's been effect for years seems to be going away in favor of the "KPRC 2 News" or "KPRC 2 News" taglines depending on which anchor you're watching. Social media wise, the station is slowly replacing the "local" word. The NBC affiliate's Facebook page name was also switched to "KPRC 2" this afternoon, however the talent pages all say KPRC Local 2 on them still. Same for the station's Twitter account. That's going to be a fun project for someone to go in & making all of those changes! http://mikemcguf
  17. According to mikemcguff.com, Fox 26 weekend morning meteorologist Caitlin Espinosa is leaving the green screen for good & calling it a TV career after 8 years. "The past 6 months I have been dealing with personal health issues, & I took it as a sign to leave the TV industry," Espinosa told mikemcguff.com. "My health is good now but I need a job with fewer environmental stresses. The cold studio, long unusual hours really made things worse for me." Don't expect any goodbye videos for Espinosa just yet. She said that she signed a contract extension with Fox 26 to helping out until the s
  18. Ch. 13 & other ABC-owned stations are unveiling LAFF on their digital channels this year. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/01/ktrk-abc13-abc-laff.html?m=1 http://abc13.com/
  19. Ladies & Gentlemen, Ch. 13 has FINALLY got a replacement for Samica Knight (who's now in the weekday morning newscasts with Tom Koch). Chauncy Glover from WDIV-TV Detroit, MI, will be heading to the Bayou City & becoming Ch. 13's weekend morning co-anchor with Elisa Rivas. This slot has been open since Knight has already replaced Sharron Melton on the Disney/ABC Television Group station's morning weekday newscasts. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/01/chauncy-glover-ktrk-abc13.html?m=1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK1rmpEQjLg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eLyxvEqEgA
  20. KPRC-TV viewers were emailing Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com that KPRC was running promos announcing a new morning meteorologist has been named & it's current weekend morning meteorologist Britta Merwin. The station has officially confirmed it! As McGuff reported back in October, current longtime morning meteorologist Anthony Yanez is heading to the west coast to KNBC-TV Los Angeles, CA (NBC 4) on January 21st, so everyone knows there was an opening coming up. Merwin will officially start as the main morning weather gig on January 16th. Leading up to his January 15th KPRC send off, Yanez ha
  21. Former Ch. 13 Eyewitness News weekend anchor Adela Uchida has landed a new job...this time in Austin, where she'll be working with KEYE-TV ABC 24 Austin as an anchor/reporter starting on January 5th, 2015. Previously, Uchida had briefly worked with News FM 92.1 (KROI) Houston before the radio news station was disbanded leading to everyone there losing their jobs. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/article/Ex-KTRK-anchor-lands-a-new-gig-in-Austin-5974757.php
  22. KENZI-TV News 9 chief meteorologist Justin Stapleton is coming to KPRC-TV the station has confirmed to mikemcguff.com. "I've always had a fascination with hurricanes & tropical storms," Stapleton told mikemcguff.com. "That's one of the draws to KPRC & Houston, an opportunity to forecast storms when they get into the Gulf & be out in the field reporting when severe weather hits. More importantly, a chance to learn from some amazing seasoned Mets like Frank & the rest of the team. Also to get a chance to learn from a former NHC director, Dr. Read, is an incredible bonus." http://
  23. Ch. 13 is beefing back up its management ranks after tumultuous few months, but the Disney/ABC Television Group is thinking a bit outside the box with its new troops. Last summer, McGuff Blog had started sending out breaking news alerts non-stop when news director Dave Strickland resigned, executive producer Jerry Vazquez left for the position of KTMD-TV news director chair & assistant news director/former reporter Don Kobos retired. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/12/ktrk-abc13-hires-two-assistant-news-directors.html?m=1 Any thoughts on the new hirings @ Ch. 13 ?
  24. Courtney Zavala, who's been with KPRC-TV since 2003 over the past 11 years is leaving the NBC station & the news business for good. Zavala plans on spending more time with her husband & 2 children: plus, the Zavala family plans on staying in Houston. http://www.click2houston.com/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/11/courtney-zavala-to-leave-kprc-2-and-tv.html Reaction from anyone on Zavala leaving KPRC-TV & the news biz ?
  25. When former KHOU-TV/KPRC-TV news anchor Steve Smith was honored at the 12th annual Lone Star Emmy Awards with the Silver Circle Award this year, it was very difficult to see his tribute video at the beginning of the webcast. Among those, who appeared in Smith's tribute video included Ch. 13's Dave Ward, KPRC-TV's Bill Balleza, former KHOU-TV weather anchor Dr. Neil Frank, and Texas Lieutenant Governor-elect Dan Patrick ®, who used to work for KHOU-TV as a sportscaster. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/11/steve-smiths-lone-star-emmy-awards-video.html
