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.

  1. Gene is a great guy. A hardworking and humble man.

    He's never metioned the family connections to me before. Maybe he doesn't want to trade on his family name.

    Or, maybe his sister told mom and day on him when they were younger, and he's still mad? lol....
