  1. Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston News Reporter Lindsey Henry is leaving the Houston Fox Station after almost 3 years: https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/10/lindsey-henry-leaves-fox-26.html https://www.facebook.com/LindseyHenry365/
  2. 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 ?
  3. Former Ch. 13 Weather Meteorologist Casey Curry has a new job..... as the Community Relations Director for Alliant Group: the company bills itself as the premier provider of specialty tax services. Earlier this morning, Curry appeared on CW 39's "Morning Dose" TV Show to promote the 2019 Alliant Group Blue Heart Fund STEM scholarship program. https://www.allliantgroup.com/about-us/our-directors/casey-curry/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/01/casey-curry-and-sharron-melton-reunite.html Any thoughts of Casey's new job ? A.) Love It B.) Hate It C.) TBD
  4. Good Morning HAIF Family. Looks like changes are taking place at Fox 26 KRIV-TV Houston. The new Weekday Morning Newscast (4:00 AM to 6:00 AM) "Wake Up With SallyMac & Lina" had debuted this morning with Sally MacDonald & Lina De Florias (who left KTVK/KPHO-TV Phoenix to come to Houston). This was also a result of Tom Zizka moving to the weekends. Just getting everybody to know what are your thoughts on the changes at Fox 26 & how do you like the new Morning TV Show ? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2018/09/wake-up-with-sallymac-lina-fox-26-kriv.html?m=1 https://www.facebook.com/SallyMacDonaldFox26 https://www.facebook.com/linadeflorias/ A.)

  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf5A-dS7Wbw Who remembers the Mexican City Earthquake on September 19th, 1985, where Mexican President Miguel de la Madrid caused international outrage for blatantly refusing international aid to help, which prolonged the suffering of the victims & survivors ?
  6. Just like that..... FOX 26 Weather Meteorologist Lisa Vaughn is no longer with the station. Her last day was on Monday, April 16th: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2018/04/lisa-vaughn-exits-fox-26-kriv.html No explanation has been made on why Vaughn left Fox 26.
  7. Here's the latest on the Lisa Vaughn Watch because she was supposed to return on August 17th, but that day came & went: https://www.facebook.com/lisavaughnweather/
  8. 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 ?
  9. Today was the LAST day for Rita Garcia at FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston after 6 years with the Houston FOX affiliate. Plus, Garcia will be going to FOX sister station, FOX 11 KTTV-TV Los Angeles, CA. While there's no word on what she'll be doing, someone found a Google search of video demos that Garcia was doing in early October for KTTV's "Good Day LA" Morning Show (The legendary Steve Edwards is still there from what I hear & for those, who don't remember: the "Good Day Live" TV Show, which was on FOX 26 & other FOX affiliates in the early 2000's). "She's one of the best, hard to see her go, but so happy for her bright future," said Morning Anchor Melissa Wilson. Garcia joined FOX 26 back in December of 2011 from Los Angeles, so it's a return to the City of Angels for her. The then-CBS 2 KCBS-TV Los Angeles freelance reporter joined the FOX 26 family as Weekend Anchor & Reporter. Less than 2 years later, she moved up to the weekday morning newscasts, where she's been ever since until today. The Lone Star State native began her TV News career in Welasco, TX with ABC 5 KRGV-TV. Garcia holds BA Degrees from Texas State University of San Marcos (Mass Communications & Spanish). https://www.facebook.com/RitaGarciaFOX26/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/12/rita-garcia-leaving-fox-26-for-fox-11-KTTV-LA.html Post your thoughts on Garcia's departure & her return to the City of Angels.
  10. Effective on Monday, August 21st, FOX 26 will be debuting "The News Edge" beginning at 10:00 PM, announced by station VP & News Director Susan Schiller. The Monday thru Friday half-hour newscast will be following the station's current 9:00 PM Newscast & leading into "FOX 26 News Isiah Factor: Uncensored", which will be returning weeknights at 10:30 PM. With this major expansion, the station will produce 57.5 hours of local news programming each week, more local news than any other station in the market. Kaitlin Monte (who was just named as Melinda Spaulding's successor as the station's weeknight Primetime Anchor), will be anchoring "The News Edge". This will offer viewers a fast-paced format, which will allow the audience to engage with FOX 26 on trending news & topics relevant to them via the station's social media channels. Monte will continue to anchor the 5:00 PM & 9:00 PM Newscasts alongside Jonathan Martin. Plus, "What's Your Point" will continue on Sunday mornings at 7:00 AM. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/08/fox-26-debuts-new-10pm-newscast.html

  12. With FOX 26 News Anchor Melinda Spaulding leaving pretty soon after almost 13 years, there's still the question of who will succeed Spaulding in the 5:00 PM & 9:00 PM Newscasts. Who do y'all think will replace Spaulding ? A.) Rita Garcia B.) Kaitlin Monte C.) Natasha Geigel D.) The Field
  13. The revolving door at FOX 26 KRIV-TV might become a trend.... this time Angela Chen, the Houston FOX Affiliate's TV Reporter & Anchor, will be leaving after just 2 years & 3 overall years in Houston [including a short-term stint at Ch. 13 KTRK-TV (ABC)]. According to Victoria Gurrieri of FOX 26, Chen's husband recently finished up his residency at UT Health & is taking a job in Los Angeles, CA (where Chen's family is from). She is planning to go with him & het last day with FOX 26 is June 21st. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/tv/article/KRIV-reporter-Angela-Chen-to-leave-station-for-11217245.php
  14. Unless you've been living under a rock, it seems that Fox 26 decided to let go of Reporter/Midday anchor Scarlett Fakhar for only expressing her honest political viewpoints to friends on social media, but somebody got all uptight, getting their feelings hurt & complained to the higher-ups of Fox 26. Anyone else's thoughts on this ? http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Scarlett-Fakhar-fired-KRIV-Trump-10621181.php
  15. Yesterday, Fox 26 unveiled their brand-new studio set with a larger skyline in the background behind the anchors. It looks somewhat similar to Ch. 13's news studio set (that debuted in the fall of 2015). How do y'all like Fox 26's new studio set ? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/01/pics-fox-26-kriv-debuts-new-set-2017.html A.) Love It B.) Hate It C.) Wait & See
  16. After 26 years with KRIV-TV Fox 26, Reporter Andrea Watkins has decided to call it quits & going out on top. She's a no-nonsense reporter, who easily handled the hard & aggressive news all the way stories on how to save consumers money. Watkins also posted on her FB page: "Just letting you know that today is my last day at Fox 26. I've enjoyed 26 great years at the station but it's time to relax a bit, enjoy more time with my family, & look for new adventures down the road. It's been a great pleasure & privilege to tell the stories I have told over the years. Thank you to all for allowing me to share your information, concerns, & experiences with the people in the Houston area & beyond! I wish all the best to the wonderful friends I've met in my journey. I'm sure we will find ways to stay in touch." According to former Fox 26 reporter Lanny Griffith (former co-worker of Watkins for 15 years), "I have never seen anyone attack a subject like Andrea Watkins," Griffith told mikemcguff.com., "Her interviews were piercing & relentless especially when it came to elected officials. She kept the flames turned up under their feet. They don't make 'em like her anymore." In 2011, Watkins had battled breast cancer & was working part-time. Ladies & Gentlemen: Wish Andrea congratulations on her 26 years of service to Fox 26 & her future endeavors! http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/09/andrea-watkins-to-leave-fox-26-kriv.html
  17. After spending 10 years with Fox 26, weekend anchor & reporter Chris Stipes is leaving the station. His wife, Elissa Rivas works for Ch. 13 KTRK-TV (ABC), who was moved from weekend morning newscasts to reporter & sometimes doing traffic. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/07/chris-stipes-leaves-fox-26-kriv.html?m=1 Reaction of Stipes leaving Fox 26 as apparently, the revolving door over there continues!
  18. Looks like the exodus of Fox 26 continues. News Director Bob Morford, after 4 years with the station, will be leaving on June 1st & going to WAFF-TV Hunstville, AL. According to sources, who told Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com., Morford never even fully lived in Houston considering that his wife resides in TN, so he often commuted there during the weekends. He joined Fox 26 in 2012 as an assistant news director, where he was later moved up to the top job 1 year later when then-News Director Tom Doerr left for WFLD-TV Fox 32 Chicago, IL & became that station's news director there. In the meantime, an aggressive search for Morford's replacement is underway! http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/05/bob-morford-leaves-fox-26-kriv-news-director.html
  19. WOW, this is something I didn't see coming: Fox 26 5pm & 10pm anchor Don Teague is no longer at the station, according to several sources. It's also reported Teague was escorted out of the station last week! http://www.chron.com/entertainment/celebrities/article/TV-news-anchor-Don-Teague-out-the-door-at-KRIV-TV-6842886.php http://www.inusanews.com/article/16144141509/tv-don-teague-fox-houston-kriv-tv-anchor http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/02/don-teague-suddenly-exits-fox-26-kriv.html I want everyone's reaction to Teague's sudden exit from Fox 26 & the details on what resulted in him getting the boot!
  20. 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 rise of multimedia journalists. In Houston, they've hired very few in the past year. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/celebrities/article/Longtime-Fox-26-reporter-calls-it-quits-cites-6305244.php https://www.facebook.com/KristineGalvan For any Fox 26 viewers out there, want to hear your reaction on Galvan's departure from Fox 26 after a decade! Later this month, she'll turn 37 years-old!
  21. Fox 26 switching folks all over the place non-stop. Fox 26 Traffic Authority Michelle Merhar has a lot of new things in her professional life. First, a new traffic system with improved on-air maps. Then, she was named the new 4am and 5am newscast anchor weekdays alongside another new addition to the morning news show, Rita Garcia. Merhar replaced Chris Stipes, who moved to the weekend newscasts. In other Fox 26 news, Tom Zizka is back on the news desk. The business reporter for the station has been recently filing in in the later weekday newscasts and filing in for Jose Grinan over the next few weeks (hmmm...I smell house cleaning here). Arnold Diaz and his investigative unit has been CUT from WNYW-TV Fox 5 New York, NY State: so goodbye to Fox 26 Investigates as folks have wondered what's happened to Fox 26 Investigative reporter Randy Wallace. Fox Television rep says Wallace is doing general assignments reporting now at Fox 26. His biography on the station's website was changed from "investigative reporter" to "reporter." Ford Atkinson hasn't been heard from in awhile now and hasn't been on the air since mid-December 2013: both of Atkinson's Twitter & Facebook accounts have stalled at the same time too. Spokesperson at the station has said that he's "on vacation." What is y'all reaction to the new changes going on at Fox 26 ?
