KHOU 11 anchor Lisa Hernandez debut reviews

UPDATE MARCH 09, 2015
Lisa Hernandez is pregnant

I've been blogging about KHOU 11 hiring KABC 7 anchor Lisa Hernandez since early September. Well, today there is no more teasing...we finally see Hernandez in action on KHOU 11.

So leave your reviews of Hernandez's television performance in the comments section below (or on older posts here concerning Ms. Hernandez). Also, the station should have the new news set up...so what do you think of that?

  1. She did great, plus she is hot. Perhaps hotter than Dominique.

  2. Hernandez Scores A Knock Out In The First Round! Houston has a new leader at L.A.s ignorance. Move over Sawyer and Couric, there's REAL talent knockin' at "the door". And would someone PLEASE tell Lisa's agent to change her station tage from Kibbles And Bits Co. (KABC TV) to KHOU TV?

  3. Seriously? I didn't see anything special. She looked heavy to me and soccer momish. I also thought she sounded like she was about to cry. Not a fan. I miss Lucy.

  4. You must have only seen the first 2 mins. She chilled and settled in real quickly after that. May be a little heavy one segment later on but that was just a few seconds and a transition, if I'm correct. Soccer momish? Please elaborate for the soccer moms and dads out here? I'd like to know how a supportive soccer parent is reflecting their children's sport? And are you a soccer parent? Do you come off this way? Keep in mind Lisa's a competitor if that's what you're insinuating. It's in her genes.

  5. Keep in mind that this was her first broadcast and her first time anchoring the news in Houston. Lisa was a bit nervous at the top of the news and you could tell by the few flubs she made, but after that she fell into a groove. I think at 10 she will be more relaxed since she got the first time jitters out the way at 5.

  6. By soccer mom i mean plainish appearance. Unpolished. Very blah in my opinion. Lucy was a supermodel in comparison. Dominique is still hottest of market. But I can't listen to her.

  7. She did awesome! Lisa has real talent and she doesn't seem as stiff and fake as other newscasters!

  8. RE: Anon 6:44pm, thank you for clarifying. Regarding Lisa's appearance, she's not a flashy person by nature but can spice it up... clothing wise. She's not into showing off physical attributes. She's too classy for that (which also makes her appealing). But she does have the outfits and if you've seen her over the years she can "dress to kill". She has teh bod to do it and knows it. Super model? Lisa's out there to "strut" her craft: broadcasting. Although many of us think she is of the quality you describe Lucy and Dominique to be. Unpolished? Umm not really. Lisa was nervous and thank you to Anon 6:43pm, I agree she had the first time jitters. What hurt Lisa, if anything, was the long lay off from KABC to KHOU. Hey when it's all said and done, we are human and going to appeal to different tastes. We might not always agree. I like Fox News and can't stand some of the "degreed" skanky bimbos they have; even with law degrees and brunette or fake dirty blonde hair... and in need of Xanex!! Sounds like you need to watch some of the independent L.A. stations and their reporters. Check out Lauren Sivan "Ms. Yoga"!! She came from FNC too!! "How do they do that?"!!

  9. The brokenhearted male fans of Dominique are gonna flock to her now. It's obvious.

  10. I got the impression she hated Greg.

  11. They should have hired Wendy Corona!!!!

    IMHO, Dom is not hot at all. Her fake boobs look good. Her nose job and chiseled chin are good work. The botox was always bad and the current lips are evidence of that. The hair is long past repair. And the heart and brain are apparently ice and coal. Hot for an AARP magazine cover maybe...or a Cosmetic surgery ad. But not anything else. Iian is the only hot anchor over there.

  13. How come no one is talking about the new set?

    ReplyDelete
  14. What new set? We were watching to get the news, not give decorating tips. You could have a schlocky set but if the anchors are great, no one will notice or care. And you say there was a co-anchor there named Greg? Sorry, both newscasts I only saw one anchor- a female.

  15. What's up with all the Lisa fans ... many of them popping up before she even landed on the air? It's admirable that you love your friend/sister/cousin, but try to be a little less obvious next time, guys.

  16. I only saw the 5pm cast but I think Lisa did very well, though I noticed her tempo and intensity seems to be lower than that of hyped-up Greg's and Gene's. And while I do welcome that calmness (probably due to nervousness), they will have to find a happy medium to achieve cohesion. But most importantly, I found her believable. That's the goal (or should be) for news anchors. Someone commented that Lisa looked heavy??? Pleeeaaassse! She looks very fit and quite a bit more real than most female anchors. She's very attractive, and though I do find most soccer moms hot, I wouldn't say she looks like one.
    BTW, the set looked nice and clean. A lot better than that disco they had before. It's no longer a visual distraction and allows the viewers to concentrate on the delivered message without the "shiny object syndrome."

  17. I have seen Lisa on KABC and KHOU. What is up with the KHOU lighting? She looked much better in L.A.! I guess having a makeup department makes a big difference as well.

  18. Jennifer Reyna and Ilona Carson rule Houston's airwaves!!!

  19. Not sure who the Carson lady is, but the only things Dr. Zira rules are ineptness and huge head contests.

  21. Lisa Hernandez did a great job putting on her makeup and keeping up with the TelePrompter. What a tough job!!! Wait! She could be president!

  22. She is hot. Dang forget Dominique.

  23. I like Hernandez, I agree the first day she seemed nervous but she's fitting in quite well. She actually reminds me of Lisa Foronda.They seem to have similar anchor style. I did really like Lucy though, she was more animated and seem to connect with the audience. I think Hernandez will do just fine @ KHOU...

  24. KHOU wants to get the male 18-34 year old demographic that KPRC does so well on attracting.

  25. Based on a lot of the comments I'm seeing here, it's no wonder TV news is so shallow -- the "critics" watching it are about as shallow as I can imagine. Lisa, don't let these trolls get you down. Houston is a wonderful city and it's the people who make it wonderful. You'll see.

  26. Lisa is beautiful. And BUILT!

  27. I challenge any one of you "Anonymous" people to a couple of things.....

    #1 To have the courage to uproot yourself from a career and a major market where you are loved to come to this market and an unfamiliar city and give it a swing. Do you think there might be some butterflies?

    #2 To expose almost every physical trait YOU have on HDTV. Lisa has NOTHING to worry about. She's beautiful and for a nice change around here doesn't look PLASTIC! She looks and is R E A L. It also comes across in her mannerisms. Not as fake as others who "grace" our screens.

    #3 To not HIDE behind the name "Anonymous" when throwing stones. You can say anything when hidden.

    If you HAD to post your name with your derogatory remarks, I would think that some of those that have would have thought twice. They probably wouldn't have had the "grit" Lisa has had coming to our town and putting herself out there.

    That's MY opinion....
