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
