More anchor changes at KHOU 11

Lots of viewers are apparently excited about the return of KHOU 11 anchor Ron Trevino to the station's morning newscast.

But that is not the only anchor change I have learned about at the CBS Houston affiliate. Saturday morning news anchor Allison Triarsi is returning to reporting full time.

"We are filling in Saturday mornings with various members of our staff," KHOU 11 Director of Programming and Marketing Lisa Trapani Shumate told mikemcguff.com.

So which KHOU 11 staffer could be the new anchor behind the anchor desk on Saturday mornings? I am hearing rumors on the street of possible candidates Jeremy Desel, Leigh Frillici and Courtney Zubowski. Stay tuned to find out who gets it.

You can pretend you are Cee Lo Green or Christina Aguiler judging the potential anchors just like they do singers on The Voice. Just turn your chair around towards your television set at the end of the newscast to show your approval.

Speaking of weekend news, I told you in the Ron Trevino post that former morning anchor Vicente Arenas was returning to weekends with Shern Min Chow. Shumate informs me his start date will be Sunday, June 12th. So watch for him then.

Speaking of changes at KHOU 11, I am still waiting to hear what the station is going to do in it's soon to be vacated Oprah Winfrey slot. My bet is still a 4pm newscast as in the reasons I gave last month. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
