KTRK 13 steals Alex Radow from KIAH 39

Just when you thought Leticia Juarez, who is KABC channel 7 Los Angeles bound, would be the only KIAH 39 talent going to Disney...think again. Last Friday Alex Radow told me he was going to KTRK 13. Time to put on his Mouse ears.

A couple of weekends ago Radow told me he had applied for the KTRK sports producer position opening. At the time I told him he probably had a really good chance. Radow is on air, produces, shoots, edits and does web stuff. That just so happens to be what the job calls for. Plus he's been in Houston for years and knows the sports scene inside out.

I would have had a quote from him, but as you can tell, he's pretty busy.

The KTRK sports producer position had lots of folks interested. How do I know? Applicants were emailing me and asking about the station.

Congrats Alex! Radow replaces Ted Markus who was formerly in the sports producer role. Markus left the locker room for a gig in the KTRK news department.

BTW, Radow's bio says he joined the 39 sports department in July of 2005. He came to Houston after spending nine years at WITN-TV in Washington, North Carolina. At WITN Alex anchored the weekend sports for five years. He also spent time as a news reporter and sports photographer.

  1. Congrats to Alex. ABC 13 is getting a great guy. Another 39 News worker bites the dust. Who's next?

  2. Who's next? May never know. The whole NewsFix deal is going to screw over CW39 News like crazy. I thought this was huge because I usually know Alex Radow for "Radow's Replays." I love Jorge Vargas on CW39 Sports, but Radow's departure is a HUGE loss. No doubt about it.

  5. For what it's worth, I'm gonna try to take some of the lockerroom with me out into the newsroom! ;-)
