For anyone who remembers the Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice protests in Houston, Texas during the mid 1980s, here's several clips of newscasts on Saturday, September 20, 1986 which consists of CBS 11, NBC 2 and Ch. 13 in that order:
Mike McGuff and The Insite both reporting Fox 26 reporter Ford Atkinson will be retiring from Fox 26 after 22 years, joining the station in 1992 and anchored the weekend newscasts in 1997. Before joining KRIV-TV, Atkinson came to Houston in 1982 and worked for KPRC-TV NBC 2 for several years before working for the Harris County Sheriff's Department. McGuff also noted that Atkinson hadn't been seen on the air since last year. Could it be that GM D'Art Bebel is acting like a dictator in driving good folks away from Fox 26 such as the late Robert Smith, Mike Barajas, Cecilia Sinclair, etc., Y'all reaction to Atkinson retiring from Fox 26?
