Fox 26 KRIV anchors playing a game of switch-a-roo on air



Here is the news about a Houston TV station I mentioned yesterday. It seems some Fox 26 KRIV anchors are being shuffled like cards at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

It first came to my attention when someone named Conservative Democrat (who links to Gov. Rick Perry's site by the way) left this message for me:

Sibilia Vargas is now doing the 9pm newscast at Fox 26 while Melinda Spaulding does the Noon and 5pm newscasts. I smell a big shake-up at Fox 26 this year.

Sure enough I watched the playback and saw it for myself. No official word from Fox on this. We can only guess KRIV is testing the waters to see how the audience reacts to the shuffle.

One thing to point out, Melinda Spaulding just shuffled shows with Melissa Wilson in the last great Fox 26 KRIV anchor change of 2010.

Forget 21, in this shuffling of the deck, the winning number is 26. OK, that sounded cooler in my head but reading it now I just look like a moron for writing it. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
