740 KTRH's Lois Melkonian leaves Houston

Tomorrow is NewsRadio 740 KTRH anchor Lois Melkonian's last day at the Clear Channel Houston station.

"I'm joining my husband in Denver, preparing to care for my parents, then branching out to explore new opportunities," Melkonian told mikemcguff.com over email. "The people here at KTRH have been wonderful."

Matt Patrick and Melkonian replaced longtime Houston morning news duo Lana Hughes and J.P. Pritchard on KTRH last July. The station was re-branded itself as NewsTalk 740, but then reversed course months later.

Melkonian, an accomplished journalist, came from KOA radio in Denver. Before Denver, she was a TV reporter/anchor at KGO 7 in San Francisco. Ahead of the TV gigs, she worked at KCBS Radio in San Francisco.

In other KTRH news, All Access is reporting that the station's web reporter Samantha Jordan is leaving the station in June. Jordan has emailed me to say this is not true.
