KHOU 11's Gene Norman has powerful TV biz connections


A very good source tells me that KHOU 11 Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman has a very powerful relative in the TV biz. I'm told that former MTV network president Christina Norman is indeed the sister of Chief Norman. Guess the last name kind of gives it away too.

Now Christina is the CEO of Oprah Winfrey's cable channel OWN.

I emailed Gene about this a few weeks ago and asked the question, "Why didn't you ever ask your sister to be the official meteoroglosist of MTV's Total Request Live?"

I never heard back from him. Guess he is busy figuring out his Norman Number of the day. Gene is a nice guy.   I interned at KTRK 13 when he was the weekend weather person. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
