There's speculation brewing that CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston might be looking for a new home. The TEGNA station had to evacuate their building during Hurricane Harvey, the station's Facebook page previously mentioned that a restoration company was working the flooded studio. However, CBS 11 KHOU-TV meteorologist Brooks Garner was asked by someone on his Facebook page on the latest developments regarding the restoration of Allen Parkway studios. Garner replied the station was looking for a new spot to call home. Even Mike McGuff of mikemcuff.com, asked the station about the possible new location search: he was then told by one of the station's representatives they will "keep in touch" when there's something to announce... which is code for MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. For now, just stay tuned on whether CBS 11 gets a new studio to call home. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/10/is-khou-11-rebuilding-or-moving.html
Tonight on the 10:00pm news, KHOU CBS 11 meterologist Mario Gomez will be delivering the weather for the final time on the TEGNA station. As Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com had reported earlier in April, Gomez is leaving KHOU-TV after 32 years. However lately, since he was still on the air. many KHOU 11 viewers asked if Gomez was actually leaving. McGuff tell them, "I hope you enjoyed Gomez's work this summer because his time with the Houston CBS affiliate ends tonight 10pm." Gomez took to Facebook earlier this morning with the following message: "As one of the longest serving TV meteorologists in Houston, I want to say thank you for allowing me to come into your homes. Thank you for trusting KHOU during the worst hurricanes & floods that are so common in SE Texas. I've enjoyed working with the best in the business for almost 32 years. See you all one last time tonight on the late news!" http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2016/07/mario-gomezs-last-khou-11-weathercast.html?m= 1 http://www.khou.com /
