KHOU 11 feedback on new slogan/logo plus anchor IDs

I've received a lot of comments about the new KHOU 11 slogan and logo. One question that kept coming up concerned the station's longtime slogan "The Spirit of Texas." So is that phrase out?

Lisa Shumate, the KHOU 11 Director of Programming and Marketing, clues us in on that and goes into detail about the station's thinking for developing the new image.

"'KHOU Stands for Houston' emphasizes the connection between our call letters and our television market," Shumate told the blog. "We will now refer to the station as 'KHOU 11.'
The logo redesign includes a two color treatment that calls attention to "HOU" and includes the Texas star. We will no longer be using 'The Spirit of Texas.'"

Shumate adds the feedback on the new campaign has been overwhelmingly positive.

You might remember that KHOU most recently branded itself as Channel 11 or 11 News.
