Hey Fox 26, I've got your main anchor right here

A month ago I posted how a stream of high powered TV anchor types have paraded through the Fox 26 KRIV newsroom looking to fill the empty main anchor chair (and I hear a former Houston talent might have been in that line too).

Anyway, I keep tuning in and seeing Bob Martin aka "The Accountant to the Stars" on the Fox 26 anchor desk. He's there doing his "Wake Up Money" financial reports. But you have to wonder? Could Martin be the gem KRIV has been looking for to replace Mike Barajas as main Fox 26 anchor? After all, his shirt and tie were color coordinated with anchor Natalie Bomke's attire the day the above image was captured.

My guess is that Martin wouldn't give up that high CPA salary or River Oaks office of his to work in TV news. Plus, he's missing the five years of TV anchor experience the job calls for. And somehow I don't see Bob attempting a move to a small market to start a new career. I mean most small cities don't have an Armani or Ermenegildo Zegna suit store...do they?
