  1. Yes thank you for coming back to the blog. McGuff is King of all knowing the Houston media scene. ;-)

  2. Saw the new guy anchoring on KPRC. He's good. Would've been better without that mistake-riddled Jen Reyna sitting there embarrassing herself and the profession....

  3. This morning, traffic amateur and terrible anchor Reyna was messing up the traffic report, not knowingthe location of a wreck and changing the location a few times. She then says, "well its somewhere near there so close enough"...
    Not good enough for those driving that way, amateur!

  4. These two postings MUST be from Conflenty!KPRC mornings would have long been dead without the gorgeous Ms Reyna. She saved the day for that channel.

  5. As for location, the traffic reporter can only tell or show you what is relayed to her.
    You are beginning to sound very spiteful and rediculous---like you have a personal axe to grind.
