I worked with a news anchor who battled an alcohol addiction. It's not just about someone having too much fun and getting carried away, there sometimes are much deeper issues we don't know about. My c

Tom Koch singed off today from the show he’s anchored for nearly 40 years (minus the 2 years when he was replaced) and the show has been #1 for virtually the entire time (minus the 2 years where he was replaced). The mayor officially declared today as “Tom Koch Day.” Heartfelt send off for one of Houston’s finest!

Tom deserves all the rest he can get and more after so many years of early-morning wake-up calls. Has KTRK announced who's taking over? The station and Houston, more generally, has seen a huge amount of turnover lately.

With May sweeps over, KXAN/Austin has parted ways with evening anchor Sydney Benter. She’d been there about 4 years. Britt Moreno from KCNC/Denver has said she is heading to KXAN and is the presumed replacement. Sydney’s post is actually kind of heartbreaking. It sounds like she was completely caught off guard.

Could someone lay out the anchors for each show? I'm still confused about who's paired with whom. And is Cheryl Preheim still there?

Wow, the fact he does not know the difference between excepted and accepted should concern any journalist.

News Director Tim Wieland from KCNC has confirmed via Twitter that Michelle Griego is leaving KPIX and will be heading back home to anchor CBS4 Mornings.

 

Michelle tweeted she will be heading home in August.

 

Not sure who will replace Michele’s position... The only candidates come to mind are Anne Makovec, Emily Turner, maybe Veronica De La Cruz if she comes back since she’s been on LOA for health and personal reasons.

Good! I was wondering. I'm glad she's coming home.

 

I wonder if Mekialaya White is going to stick on weekends since Kathy retired.
