Fox 26 KRIV loses two managers to other stations

Two Fox 26 KRIV managers move on to becomes news directors at other stations

Fox 26 KRIV loses two of its managers to other stations. Both are leaving as news directors the Houston Fox owned and operated station announced on Facebook.

"A bittersweet day in the FOX 26 Houston newsroom with the announcement that executive producer Geoff (left) will be leaving for a news director position in Charlotte, N.C. while assignments desk manager Chris (right) has accepted a news director position in Victoria, Texas. We will miss you both!"

If you are looking for last names to go with the first ones mentioned above, they are executive producer Geoffrey Roth and assignments manager and photographer Chris McDonald.

I'll try to find out where they are going...

Ask and you shall receive. The folks at TVSpy notified me that Geoff Roth has been named vice president of local content at WJZY-WMYT, Fox’s duopoly in Charlotte.

UPDATE
Chris McDonald ended up at KHOU 11 on the assignments desk.

Still working on McDonald.

I'm pretty sure that Victoria only has KAVU as a full TV station. And sure enough, TAB has a news director position listed for KAVU. So I am pretty sure Chris McDonald is the new news director of KAVU.

Speaking of news directors, Fox 26 just moved Bob Morford from assistant ND to the main news dude job.

Get your resumes ready with my Texas TV jobs page.

  1. So is Melissa Lanford really leaving 11 for 2?
