Where is Fox 26 KRIV's Tom Zizka?

Tom Zizka has been a trooper trouper for Fox 26 KRIV. He came to the Fox owned Houston station in 1998 as a consumer/investigative reporter, then became a morning anchor and lately a fill-in main anchor.

A FOX rep told me Zizka is coming full circle and returning to a similar role to his first. Starting this week, he will cover consumer and business news for Fox 26's 5 and 9pm newscasts.

Zizka has been a familiar face on Fox 26 Morning News for many years as one of the many anchors on the now six hour long show. Most recently we saw Zizka serve as a fill-in main anchor after Mike Barajas left the station.

Now that former NBC/CBS network correspondent Don Teague has officially filled Barajas' empty chair, Zizka will return to his original role. As a former KTRK 13 consumer producer, I say the more consumer news in Houston, the better.

Zizka will be joining current Fox 26 consumer reporter Emily Akin and her "Take It To Akin" segments. Think two consumer reporters is a lot? Another Houston station that also has two consumer reporters is KTRK 13 with Jeff Ehling and Patricia Lopez.
