- Darby Douglas' near death experience, plus life after KHOU 11
- Watch Darby Douglas do traffic on KHOU 11 once again
Lots of talk in the last week or so about Darby Douglas of KHOU Channel 11's morning traffic. HAIF had a post that Douglas was let go from KHOU which was followed by another related post by Katharine Shilcutt Gleave at Houstonist.
David Barron finally offers the news from Belo:
Darby Douglas, who has delivered traffic reports on KHOU (Channel 11) since 1996, is no longer with the station.
A Channel 11 spokeswoman confirmed that Douglas was no longer part of the station’s morning news team but did not elaborate. She noted that Douglas is employed by Westwood One’s Metro Traffic division and remains a Metro employee.
Douglas was replaced on Monday’s morning newscast by Metro Traffic employee Mary Kennedy. Channel 11 did not say when a permanent replacement would be named. READ THE REST
You can still read Douglas' traffic blog. I never understood the point of a traffic blog by the way.
