UPDATE AUGUST 25, 2014
Why is Sharron Melton a KTRK abc13 'field anchor' now?
Don't worry Melton fans, she will be back. Here is what Melton wrote on her Facebook fan page:
"Sorry I've been away for so long. But, for those of you who do not know I have a painful back injury. As soon as I get past this, I will be back on the air. Thank you to all who have sent words of encouragement and prayers because I really do appreciate it."
Melton is not the only KTRK anchor disappearing from the channel 13 airwaves lately. Longtime anchor Dave Ward injured himself after a fall while heading to the news desk to anchor the 10pm news a few weeks ago. He is currently recovering from surgery.
