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 ?
Ladies and gentlemen, we finally have two co-anchors for KPRC-TV's weekend evening newscasts, which means Phillip Mena no longer has to do the weekend newscasts by himself. Syan Rhodes was promoted as the station's weekend evening anchor, which was confirmed by the NBC affiliate's executive producer Rick McFarland told mikemcguff.com. "I'm excited and very thankful for the opportunity," Rhodes told mikemcguff.com. Plus, she's a native Houstonian, who's glad to come back home to the Bayou City. She replaces Irika Sargent, who left the co-anchor gig back in May to WFOR-TV Miami, FL. http://www.click2houston.com/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/10/syan-rhodes-upped-to-kprc-weekend-anchor.html
