Where is Kaitlin Monte ? She hasn't been seen on TV in a long while. Now Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com mentioned a few weeks ago that Monte was on vacation, but there hasn't been any new developments since.

Her recent post on Instagram from June 15th:

I'm going with option E: I have no idea.

I've been trying to watch more local TV news lately, but it's just the same old thing on every channel.  And not even the "same old thing" as in they all cover the same stories.  I mean the same old thing I used to put on the local news when I was doing it almost 25 years ago.

Another random shooting.  Another random fire.  Another random outrage group trying to make a name for itself and mug for the camera.  Same old stuff from day to day.

It seems like the consultants have convinced local news directors to shift from "News that matters" to "New you can use" to "Here's what you should be afraid of today!"

The only difference between now and 25 years ago is that now, there's traffic in the evening newscasts.  Who is that for?  With the exception of the morning news, people don't turn on the TV to see what the traffic is like.  Even if they did, by the time they got in their car and on the freeway, the traffic has changed.  Traffic is just filler content because it's cheaper than hiring more writers and reporters. 

Also, where are the news helicopters?  As far as I can tell, only 13 has one.  It used to be that every station except 26 and 39 had one.  And 39's excuse was that it was a startup and the owners made the news director choose between a satellite truck and a helicopter.

The only station doing anything different is KHOU, but even that is superficial.  It's at least visually different, even though it's a standard package that's used at all of its owners' stations.  Every other station is putting out news using the same methods, the same visuals, the same rundowns as when I was doing it.

The best local news in Houston these days is the dead tree edition of the Chronicle, which is really not saying very much.  Seriously, how many hamburger reviews does one city need?

I'm amazed that Fox 26 has NOT picked a permanent replacement for Christy'ann Uribe, who was the Weekday Traffic Anchor before she left. 

I know Coco Dominguez briefly did Traffic during 5:00 PM newscasts before she moved to doing "The Buzz" entertainment segments.

 

I still like to know if Jose Grinan & Denise Middleton are coming back ? 😕
