    Next to KHOU legends like Steve Smith, Marlene McClinton, and the late Sylvan Rodriguez; Greg Hurst (A close personal friend of mine) is Houston news legend in my book. I'll miss him at 5 & 6PM, but we'll always keep in touch on Facebook. As for who succeeding him, expect Len Cannon to be promoted to the 5 and 6PM in addition to his 4 & 10PM duties.

    This is from July of 1999 when Greg was hired in June to take over for the retired Steve Smith.

    Well here's a wee bit more info.. He's moving back to Indy due to a "long-distance relationship" and wants it to work out... He says he's got a few gigs here and there, but can't announce any "permanent" plans... This was via his Facebook page on March 17...

    Viewers are outraged over Greg's ouster. And some have feared that the current AM anchor might replace Greg, because its ND is the wife of that anchor.

    Scott Levin making a smart move by leaving on his own terms rather than taking a TEGNA buyout

    If I was management over at WKBW/Channel 7 I would seriously make an offer to lure him over to help the once dominated station in the market. I'm sure he has a following of viewers.

    I can't believe Russ Lewis "liked" some of the posts from angry viewers criticizing him and and his wife, the ND. That seems rather tacky. All it does is further upset viewers of a station whose newscasts are in 3rd place in many timeslots. Not smart.

    I'm sure in just a few days we will all learn that Mr. Lewis had his account hacked. That will explain all those "likes" to the his angry netizens.

    He used to be the noon anchor at WWBT in the '90s.

    Speaking of WWBT, reporter Mike Valerio left the station to join WUSA9. I saw him on the evening news just recently.

    There's is absolutely no adequate way to describe Rich Fisher... Legendary, Perspective, and Quintessential. And I know Rich and the late, great Bill Bonds are now together
    anchoring the news up in the good lord above. Rich Fisher's contributions throughout the entire Metro Detroit area were great and respectful. Fisher worked anchored, with
    THE BEST in Detroit Television at WXYZ, WJBK and WKBD/WWJ bar none. Makupeson, Briscoe, Conway, Bonds, Lewis, Perkins, Margolis, Feldman, Zaret, Edwards,
    Materre, Hodak, Glover, and many others who worked along side him. They'll never be, I mean this from the heart; they'll never another broadcaster and communicator than
    Rich Fisher.

    TVNT would like to offer our extended heartfelt thoughts, prayers and condolences to Rich Fisher's family, and his extended TV family at FOX 2 (WJBK), ABC 7 (WXYZ) and
    CW 50/CBS 62 (WKBD/WWJ) in this very difficult and emotional time.

    Rest in Peace, Rich Fisher and Godspeed.

    Rich Fisher
    (1949-2017)
