Fox 26 KRIV adds new weekend newscasts

Now I get to say TOLDJA! just like Deadline Hollywood's Nikki Finke!

In early May I broke the "rumors" that Fox 26 KRIV was expanding its weekend newscast offerings. Fox Broadcasting has no official update on this yet, but I can say with certainty, that Fox 26 reporter Sally MacDonald will anchor a new weekend newscast from 5 to 8am.

How do I know this? The station is now running on air promos with MacDonald featured as the anchor. Fox 26 meteorologist John Dawson will handle weather.

But that's not all, the new weekend 5pm show I told you about also has its own promo with current 9pm anchor Rita Garcia sitting behind the news desk. Dawson will handle weather there too I'm sure.

The new Fox 26 weekend newscasts start July 7th. I'll be on my couch with a bag of popcorn.

  1. Rumor has it that behind the seens staff as of yet have not been told who will be required to work the weekend shifts. All they heard was that there would be no new hires and minimal overtime to pull this off.

  2. Mike why will you be sitting on the couch watching this mess? I can't stand Fox mornings Monday - Friday. Now they have to invade my weekend too? A bunch of talentless fluff balls that work there. No thank you.

    1. Not sure about him, but I'll watch since finally there's an alternative to the annoying "Connor this, Connir that" Zavala or her unqualified and inept fill-in, Dr Zira Reyna.

  3. My question is if you will be eating popcorn during the early weekend newscasts. I would be eating two large breakfast tacos. The weekend meterologistst most stations do both morning and night newscasts. They don't get much sleep those days.

  4. OK, you got me. I probably will not be watching. Believe it or not, I hardly watch any of the newscasts at this point.

    I have two kids. I'll either be chasing them around, eating breakfast with them or watching Nick Jr.

  7. Why would ANYBODY watch Fox26 News in the first place?? ALL of the anchors are boring as hell! And I don't think that Fox 26 News has a big following?? I'm too busy watching Prime Time Major league Baseball!

    1. If you stumbled upon KPRC 2's travesty of an 11:00 AM news today, you would have your answer. They had the incompetent Reyna paired with the nasally bleached blonde Freeman and it was a joke. Neither is qualified to be an anchor, neither has a personality, and they are the worst readers since Dexter Manley. It's jokes like them that will keep KPRC as KRAP.

  11. Just when you think KPRC can't get any worse, Nef Jacquez and her gawdy, Goodwill-looking, Dom Sachse inspired jewelry s d terrible voice is doing news on Sunday night. This station needs a complete overhaul of its "talent" or lack thereof.

    1. At least Nef can read and doesn't flub words like Iri-uh Irika Sargent.

    2. I miss Irika. She's why I watch Sundays.

    3. I think Sargent does pretty good. You are reaching with the critique of a few flubbed words.

      Delete
    4. She can read but her insincerely fake voice is as annoying as a dying cat. And that Lewis lady is the worst addition to this station since Freeman and Clanton. But it makes for great comedy.
