Tomorrow is the last day of Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston reporter Marla Carter, who'll be leaving the ABC O&O Station after nearly 6 years according to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/09/marla-carter-leaving-abc13-ktrk.html?m=1 https://twitter.com/MarlaABC13/status/1443240869084155914 Interesting to see if Carter will return to the TV biz down the road but looking forward to seeing her next chapter in life.
Howdy everyone. Unless y'all have been living under rocks during the early part of the Summer, Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston Reporter Ivory Hecker announced during the 5:00 PM Newscast yesterday evening that she's teaming up with Project Veritas in blowing the whistle on her own company. Something tells me Fox 26 GM & Executive VP D'Artanian Bebel is NOT thrilled with Hecker's Jack Bauer-esque rogue-ness including Hecker's accusations that Fox Corporation has been muzzling her from telling the truth to the viewers: https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/06/ivory-hecker-fox-26-project-veritas.html The Houston Chronicle's title has Hecker claiming she's been muzzled by Fox 26 & the higher-ups of that station: https://www.chron.com/culture/tv/article/Houston-Fox-26-TV-Ivory-Hecker-Project-Veritas-16249035.php https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-Fox-26-reporter-Ivory-Hecker-alleges-16247795.php Any thoughts on Hecker going off-script on live TV yesterday & the ramifications if she'll keep her job at Fox 26 ? Because once again, I've got a feeling D'Art either didn't know she was going to do this OR found out like everyone else & is PISSED off.
