Good News ladies & gentlemen: former Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston Morning Anchor Sharron Melton is BACK on Houston TV News..... this time with CW 39 KIAH-TV Houston's morning newscast beginning on Monday, October 22nd, 2018. The Morning TV Newscast will include a new bunch of on-air news anchors & reporters except for Maggie Flecknoe, who will be continuing with CW 39, where she has been providing local morning cut-in's for the station. For those, who don't know who the rest of the news anchors & reporters of CW 39 are yet, here we go: Sharron Melton (Anchor): She needs no introduction since Houston TV viewers know who she is.... Native of San Antonio (GO SPURS GO) came to Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston in 2007 from weekend anchor duties at WSVN-TV Miami, FL. Prior to that, she worked at WPMI-TV Mobile, AL & KOBR-TV Rosewell, NM. The award winning journalist got her start as a radio reporter for the Agriculture Communications Network. The TAMU graduate also has a Master's Degree in Television Communication from Eastern New Mexico University. Since leaving Ch. 13 (which many people still consider very controversial to this day), Melton launched her podcast "Sharing the Sugar with Sharron"., where she interviewed some big names about the importance of giving back to their communities. Melton is also a proud member of the International Women's Forum Houston Chapter, the National Association of Black Journalists & has been a member of the Board of Directors for the Girls Scouts of San Jacinto Council in Houston & Steering Committee for Women of Wardrobe with Dress For Success Houston. Houston Woman's Magazine named her one of the 50 Most Influential Women in the City of Houston. Shannon LaNier (Anchor): Most recently worked as weekend anchor from Fios1 News in NY St. Before that, LaNier was a multi-media journalist at News 12 Networks. Maria Sotolongo: Meteorologist: Previously worked at FOX 4 KDFW-TV Dallas/Fort Worth for 6 years as not only one of the meteorologists, but also an entertainment reporter. She later stepped away from the morning news in order to become a full-time mother in 2007, since moving to Houston. She also worked at Telemundo's "Primera Edicion".

Recently as last month, people have been asking as to why is Sharron Melton (Ch. 13's weekday morning news anchor) being downgraded to just a "field anchor" ? Melton was removed from the morning anchor desk (Elissa Rivas and sometimes Samica Knight have been doing the weekday morning newscasts with Tom Koch) and now reporting in the field (still doing it as of September 26th today). This has resulted in many angry viewers emailing the station or others like Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com for answers. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/08/sharron-melton-ktrk-abc13-field-anchor.html http://www.ktrk.com/ Having watched some of the morning newscasts in her "field anchor" reports, I can tell that Melton is NOT happy based on body language, as what some commentators in the McGuff blog has mentioned. Any reaction to Melton's downgrading to a "field anchor" at Ch. 13's morning weekday newscasts ?
Today, KTRK-TV Ch. 13's Sharron Melton announced on Facebook that after 8 years with the ABC O&O station, she's leaving to pursue new opportunities. According to the Houston Chronicle & MikeMcGuff.com, the news isn't a big surprise for Ch. 13 viewers, who've predicted Melton would leave the station following being demoted from the weekday morning newscasts to just a "field anchor reporter" back in October 2014, later being was replaced on the weekday mornings by Samica Knight. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/05/sharron-melton-exits-ktrk-abc13.html?m=1 http://chron.com/entertainment/celebrities/article/KTRK-TV-s-Sharron-Melton-announces-exit-from-6246424.php
