KHOU 11 unveils the Lisa Hernandez shock and awe





As you first learned on mikemcguff.com, former KABC abc 7 anchor Lisa Hernandez is replacing Lucy Noland (now of KNBC 4) at the KHOU 11 anchor desk next to Greg Hurst. Hernandez's official start date is Monday October 24th on the 5 and 10pm newscasts.

Hernandez has been in Houston for most of this month already and now we know what she's been doing...participating in the big station promo campaign for her arrival. Check out the two promos embedded in this post that tell her story.

If that's not enough, KHOU.com has launched an official Lisa Hernandez section where you can read and see more about her. There will also be Hernandez content on the station's mobile apps.

I figure if you are getting a new Los Angeles anchor, you might as well go big or go home in your promotional efforts. I've already had lots of sad California viewers come by and comment how they already miss her, so expect Hernandez to hit the ground running here.

  2. I want to tell you who I really miss here in Houston. That's right, I wish Mike Barajas wasn't at KTUU. I want him to come back to Houston TV.

  3. I'm not shocked by her abilities, and I remain in awe of just how crappy the news talent is -- across the board and all networks -- in this supposedly major TV market of a town.

  4. Who's the fat black guy standing next to her in the top image?

  5. Just watched some KRAP Ch 2 online news - Reyna is flat out terrible, and Owen next to her is equally pathetic as he peers at her chest. Get rid of both of these losers...

  6. She's gorgeous, so she must be good, right?

  7. Well let's face it only beautiful people can read the news.

  10. Speaking of shock and awe, I am SHOCKED at how AWEful Jennifer Reyna is in hervnew and totally undeserved role. I can only imagine how she actually got that gig.

  11. Lisa Hernandez is hot. She, Johnson, and Whaley are going to be one hot three at KHOU.

  12. God it's only obvious Reyna haters are jealous.

  13. I'm shocked and awed on how hot she is. Dominique has competition.

  14. A few months ago you were all hard over Teague coming to KRIV. What's he done for the ratings? Nothing. Then you went gaga over Chi-Chi-Chita only to admit now that nobody's interested anymore. Now you have a crush on Lisa2.

    Just report the comings and goings, Mike and leave the schoolboy comments to the amatuers. A couple of promos and webpage isn't "shock and awe."

  15. Jennifer Reyna is doing just fine. Don't know what happened with Mike Barajas but I think it was a mistake to let him go. He is an excellent newscaster. Bring him back please.

  16. Chita still has a large following, it's just that she's new and only until last week she had so much airtime, now you'll see so many dues in Houston talking about how hot Chita is.

  17. Dom's old, worn out, insincere and wrinkly. But I give her credit for being a has been, as opposed to a never was like Dr Zira.

  18. To be clea, I for one don't hate Reyna nor am I jealous. I simply find her inept, unqualified, unlistenable, unattractive and a joke. That fits in at KPRC though, but she has no business being on tv.

    I wish her well,my girlfriend gald she's gone

  20. Just have strippers read the news and be done with it.
    But seriously, these promo spots of anchors "out and about" in the city are so lame. Let's try on a Texans jersey! Let's go act like I'm playing in a park!!
    And then the new anchor -- who hasn't lived in Houston in years, if ever -- tells US what's so great about the city. No shit, we live here.

  21. Why is thetop picture different? Did McGuff get paid off?

    ReplyDelete
  22. That would be cool...but that video is from the station YouTube account. They must have changed something.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah, they changed by getting rid ofvthe black died and thevpic of texans jerseys; and the new pic shows rack. Great job KHOU. Losers.

  24. Been a great few days at Ch 2 in the mornings without Dr Zira Reyna on air. Now if they'd just get rid of Lauren-Jim-Halpert-Freeman, and Owen Sucksplenty.

  25. I know a lot of guys that are going to be watching Lisa after Dominique got engaged. So expect the young male audience of KHOU to skyrocket.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh yeah! Lisa: Please be still my beetin' heart. You rocked tonight woman! IRIE!!!
