But better late than never. Here is part of the nice write up the WTHR website had on Connors' new gig:
"I'm honored to join the staff at WTHR," said Connors. "It's exciting to be part of a newsroom and a television station with such a rich tradition of quality journalism and community service. I look forward to working with this talented group of journalists to continue WTHR's tradition of excellence on air, on-line and on the go."
Keith's newsroom was put to the ultimate test when Hurricane Ike struck the Texas coast in 2008. It was an unprecedented disaster for Houston and KHOU received accolades for its coverage and service to the community. While other local stations focused coverage on damage and destruction, KHOU chose to focus on getting residents help and support in the wake of this major weather catastrophe. Keith helped develop partnerships with local radio stations, satellite radio and satellite television providers to get information and help to local residents as quickly as possible.
Connors has worked at WCNC Charlotte, WVEC Norfolk, WORK Rochester, WKRN Nashville and WTOL and WDHO in Toldeo.
