Where is KHOU 11's David Paul?

An anonymous reader wrote to the blog with a question about KHOU 11's early newscasts:

What has happened to David Paul at KHOU?

He was our favorite meteorologist and he seems to have been replaced on the Noon news. This is terrible if he has been replaced.

Any word that you have would be appreciated.

"Chita [Johnson] has been the meteorologist for the noon newscast since the end of August," Rebecca Cantu with KHOU 11 community marketing and public relations told mikemcguff.com. "David continues his role as morning meteorologist and Chita handles weather at noon and 4pm.

"By adding a new meteorologist to the team, and a new newscast at 4pm, we were able to distribute the weathercasts. David Paul has a big job from 4:30am to 7am on 11 News This Morning, plus weather cut-ins each day during the Early Show from 7-9a – and as you know, that job comes with a very early call time!"

Yes it does. Hopefully the anonymous reader will be able to sleep better knowing this info too.

  1. And where is Tim Melton of KTRK? I don't think he has been on the air since mid October.

  2. Sounds logical. Having Chita just do 1 show didn't really make sense, money-wise, unless she was only gonna work as a part-timer.

  3. Chita is too hot to have only one show.

  4. The sad thing is that she has no clue about meteorology. Let's see how good she is when there's a hurricane bearing down on Houston.

    1. Agree. I've switched stations in the a.m. and don't watch at night. Miss you David!

  8. Fox is on from 4-10am...makes 4:30-7 sound not too bad

  9. True, but Fox doesn't do too much news. Just a whole lotta cooking segments and other fill.

  12. Thanks for providing this update, as I was the one who sent in the inquiry. I don't watch morning news, but I always looked forward to watching David Paul on the Noon news when I was at home or had the chance to watch. I'm not a fan of his replacement. As long as he didn't get forced out.

    1. And guess what...that's exactly what happened. If the morning news is such a "big job" and they felt the need to redistribute the newscasts, then why does Chita now have mornings AND noon? She has basically taken the time slots that David Paul successfully managed for many, many years. I had a feeling when she took the noon slot that it was a matter of time before David Paul was forced out. The morning show is not nearly as good now...the balance is gone, and it's more like watching The View with all the blond/bleached, thin, young females.

  13. I guess David needs to bleach his hair, get breast I plants, and start doing his job with only one-half of the skill and professionalism that he actually has. Then he'll fit in....

  14. I can't believe the former home of Dr. Neil Frank would make such a hire. KHOU's credibility is fading fast, looking more like the old KPRC everyday.

  15. Chita Johnson (along with Whaley) was most likely hired to help KHOU attract a young male viewership, and when I mean young I mean like teenager-college aged young.

  16. I'm young and I find Chita incompetent and unattractive. (Bomke and Reyna, too).

  17. David Paul needs to be back on the air doing the weather -- not Chita!!! JMO
