  1. I found some clips from Fox 26 and their news package called, "Fox O&O News Package", I believed they used a different version of this music theme during their 7pm newscast back in 1986. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ4wELLM8ww Here's another from Dailymotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x82q8o_kriv-houston-25-yrs-of-news-on-fox_news In the early seconds of this clip, you'll see the first newscasts from 1983 and I believe 1986 or 1987. Does anyone have the full newscast of Fox 26 from November 1992 ?
  2. It looks like another one at Fox 26 is leaving for greener pastures. Reporter and fill-in anchor Ned Hibberd is leaving for Fox owned stations WJZY-WMYT in Charlotte, North Carolina reported Fox 26 KRIV reporter Isiah "The Factor" Carey aka The Insite. Hibberd will be the assistant news director for the newly purchased FOX duopoly. Hibberd follows former FOX 26 executive producer Geoffrey Roth, who became VP of local content (aka news director) there last summer. "Ned has been an integral part of our news team over the last 23 years," said Fox 26 KRIV VP & General Manager D'Artagnan Bebel in a statement released to mikemcguff.com in an email. "He is an accomplished storyteller, whose keen insight into emerging technologies and unique news style will be missed. We wish him well in his new position." His departure will be a big blow to the station since he's been at KRIV since 1988. Hibberd started at Fox Houston as an intern in 1988 and worked his way up. According to his bio, he's worked as a production crew member, assignments editor, associate producer, investigative reporter, fill-in anchor and general assignments reporter. Hibberd leaves KRIV on November 24th and begins work in Charlotte on December 2nd. Congrats to Ned and his wife, Danielle and their 3 sons. Mike McGuff and The Insite both reported this story: http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2013/11/ned-hibberd-leaves-fox-26-wjzy-wmyt-fox-charlotte,html http://www.isiahfactor.com/2013/11/12/ned-hibberd-heads-to-charlotte/ Any reaction to Hibberd leaving Fox 26 ?
  3. Mike McGuff and Robert Feder both reporting that Fox 26 entertainment reporter Jake Hamilton is leaving the station after 4 years and heading to WFLD-TV, Fox 32 Chicago. Hamilton, a native of Seabrook, Texas, who attended the University of Houston, began hosting the film review segment "Jake's Takes" for KHOU-TV, the CBS affiliate in Houston. He later shifted to KRIV-TV, Fox 26 in 2009. A note posted on Friday, had appeared on Hamilton's Facebook page about his hiring at Fox 32 subsequently disappeared. http://www.robertfeder.com/2013/10/27/fox-hires-two-more-out-of-town/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2013/10/another-fox-26-er-to-chicago-2-tx-tv.html Any thoughts on Hamilton leaving Fox 26 for WFLD-TV, Fox 32 Chicago ?
  4. After 3 years at Fox 26, morning news anchor Natalie Bomke is leaving KRIV-TV and heading back home to Illinois and co-anchoring the weekday morning newscast at WFLD-TV Fox 32 Chicago with Dawn Hasbrouck, according to the Houston Chronicle. She'll also be reuniting with former Fox 26 news director Tom Doerr. Doerr moved to Chicago earlier this year and is the current news director of WFLD. Her departure was initially reported by Mike McGuff of http://www.mikemcguff.com/ Any reaction or thoughts ?
  5. Folks, I found some photos online of the Houston skyline, which was used by some news stations (KTRK 13's had the large close-up of the downtown skyline) while KPRC NBC 2 and KRIV's Fox 26 was spread out.
  6. I was searching old newscast opens from FOX stations back in the 1980s using the music theme, "Fox O&O News Package" and look what I found: From WNYW-TV New York Fox 5 (1989) 7pm newscast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUBTzJGXSI Jack Cafferty worked for WNYW Fox 5 back in the day before joining CNN http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9CFGA7g0Rw Fox 26 Houston KRIV-TV June 6, 1989 7pm close KTTV Los Angeles Fox 11 in 1988 http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xhk0ij_kttv-fox-news-1988-intro_shortfilms Let me know if you guys can find videos from 1987 on KDAF 33 Dallas-Fort Worth.
