Matt Lavine talks about KHOU 11 gig

As I told you Sunday, Matt Lavine (former Fox 26 KRIV morning meteorologist) was back in Houston on KHOU 11 this weekend doing the weather. He told me earlier this year (after filling in at KHOU) that he was moving to Seattle. Here is what Lavine said to me via email about his TV work this past weekend:

"Yes, as you can see I'm back on the air at KHOU. What can I say...I love working at Channel 11!

News director Keith Connors and Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman invited me back while visiting family and friends in Texas. I'm having a blast celebrating my 20 years "on air" in Houston, and

I really enjoy working with KHOU anchors Allison Triarsi and Shern-Min Chow as well as the entire Channel 11 staff.

I can't say much more than that, but I will say that you can take the boy out of Texas, but you can't Texas out of the boy. I love living in Seattle, but I still proudly call Texas home."

Well based on all of the Web surfers looking for information on you this weekend, some Houston weather watchers love themselves some Matt Lavine!

  1. Mike, My fill-in work at KHOU is complete, and I'm now back home in Seattle. I just want to make it clear that I was only "filling-in" and that there are no plans for me to return to KHOU as a full-time meteorologist. Gene,Dave and Mario all do a terrific job, and I'm proud to say that I had a chance to work with them. Anytime they need vacation relief, I'll be more than happy to make another brief appearance on Channel 11. All the best-Matt
