Bob Slovak new KTRK abc13 weekend sports anchor

Bob Slovak now featured on weekend newscast open as sports anchor

I broke the news last week that Tim Melton had left KTRK abc13 and this weekend as of last weekend, it looks like sports reporter Bob Slovak is officially the new weekend sports anchor at the ABC owned and operated station because he is now on the newscast's open.

 Slovak has just been included in the intro with Tom Abrahams, Adela Uchida and meteorologist David Tillman.

Melton had not appeared on air since October 2011 when he suffered a stroke. Since then we've ween Eyewitness News sports staff members like Slovak and David Nuno fill in.

According to his bio, Slovak has been at KTRK since 1998. He was born and started working in TV at KTEN in Ada, Oklahoma and went on to work at stations like KFDM Beaumont, KOTV Tulsa and KNXV Phoenix. He is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin University and has won honors from organizations such as the the Associated Press, Emmys and Edward R. Murrow awards organizations.


  1. He should have been the main sports guy. He was hosed. He has more character in his right pinky finger than the other guy has, period.

  2. Slovak did get hosed. He should have gotten the top job.

  3. Same thing happened to David Tillman.
