Ladies & Gentlemen including longtime Ch. 13 viewers, starting August 3rd, longtime weekday morning meteorologist Casey Curry will leave the weekday morning newscasts & switch places with current 11:00am/4:00pm meteorologist Travis Herzog, according to the ABC O&O station! Curry joined Ch. 13's weekday morning newscast in August of 2006 replacing Doug Brown (RIP). According to Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com, she's a very big deal on the McGuff Blog over the years. Herzog, a graduate of Texas A&M University, joined Ch. 13 about 1 month before Curry arrived, he came from KTBX-TV CBS 3 Bryan-College Station. Of course, majority of Ch. 13 viewers really want to know why are these changes necessary ? McGuff explains that there's been recent changes & lots of turnover at the station in recent years. Expect lots more changes as well as a brand new studio set (note they've updated the set recently) including the fact the station's once-dominant weekday morning newscast hasn't been dominating since November of 2013 as other rival news stations have been upping their game in surpassing Ch. 13. Since then, KPRC-TV (NBC 2) had rose to the top in terms of being #1 in the weekday morning news shows with the morning news show winner being Fox 26 KRIV-TV! The demotion of then-weekday morning anchor Sharron Melton to a Field Anchor (who eventually left the station for good) as well as the retirement of longtime Traffic anchor Don Nelson have played major roles in these constant changes. Another theory is that the station maybe feeling to add one more male on their weekday morning newscasts since Nelson was replaced by Katherine Whaley. As usual, calls to Ch. 13's higher-ups & management haven't been returned to McGuff or anyone else. Plus, Dish customers are now complaining of a yellow screen in place or over KTRK-TV. Many have complained about the situation on Social Media. Meanwhile, Dish reported that this was Ch. 13's problem! Any reaction to the swaps ? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2015/07/casey-curry-travis-herzog-ktrk-abc13-swap-switch.html
KPRC-TV viewers were emailing Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com that KPRC was running promos announcing a new morning meteorologist has been named & it's current weekend morning meteorologist Britta Merwin. The station has officially confirmed it! As McGuff reported back in October, current longtime morning meteorologist Anthony Yanez is heading to the west coast to KNBC-TV Los Angeles, CA (NBC 4) on January 21st, so everyone knows there was an opening coming up. Merwin will officially start as the main morning weather gig on January 16th. Leading up to his January 15th KPRC send off, Yanez has been busy plugging his new children's book "A Wild Ride on the Water Cycle"-a children's book that teaches weather science to younger readers. He recently made an appearance @ the Children's Museum of Houston to read from his book with help from Santa Claus! Reaction from anyone regarding Merwin's promotion to the weekday morning meteorologist gig ? http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/12/britta-merwin-KPRC-2-morning-anthony-yanez.html?m=1 http://www.click2houston.com/
KENZI-TV News 9 chief meteorologist Justin Stapleton is coming to KPRC-TV the station has confirmed to mikemcguff.com. "I've always had a fascination with hurricanes & tropical storms," Stapleton told mikemcguff.com. "That's one of the draws to KPRC & Houston, an opportunity to forecast storms when they get into the Gulf & be out in the field reporting when severe weather hits. More importantly, a chance to learn from some amazing seasoned Mets like Frank & the rest of the team. Also to get a chance to learn from a former NHC director, Dr. Read, is an incredible bonus." http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/12/justin-stapleton-joins-kprc-2-weather.html?m=1 Reaction from anyone on Stapleton joining the KPRC-TV weather team?
