After two years, evening anchor Shelby Cashman is leaving KOAT to take over the morning spot on KOCO. This isn't her first time in Oklahoma City either.

 

This surprises me because I thought Alejandra Briones was next in line to take the morning anchor spot but at the same time, it doesn't as I saw this  eventually coming when Cashman left for KOAT.

Lyle Banks as VP and general manager of WISC-TV, in Madison. Most recently VP and GM of Meredith’s WGCL-TV, Atlanta.

Probably why they are shrinking the sports department. I'm worried about what this guy will do being he managed WGCL.

This is a surpise but the set looks better than KDFW. And plus I live in the market can't wait to see how they do the newscasts next week.

With Spectrum News 1 in Austin, San Antonio, and now in D/FW next week, Spectrum News Texas is the new TXCN. Now, if we can expand that coverage to Houston.

 

Comcast is the dominant cable provider in Houston, so don't expect that anytime soon.
