As I tweeted yesterday during KHOU 11's 4pm news, anchor Lisa Hernandez returned to work after her maternity leave with a little schedule alteration.
"I cried as I left the baby for the very first time," posted Hernandez. "So predictable (smile emoticon). Thanks to Len, Greg, Mia & the rest of the crew for helping me get back in the groove!"
And now changes are afoot in the channel 11 anchor schedule.
I received lots of email/social media messages that it was announced yesterday during the newscast that morning anchor Mia Gradney (who had been filling in for Hernandez) has been named the new 5pm anchor with Greg Hurst. Thanks to everyone who wrote in about this.
Pre-baby, Hernandez anchored the 4pm, 5pm and 10pm news.
** UPDATE **
A KHOU rep tells me Greg Hurst and Mia Gradney will co-anchor KHOU 11 News at 5pm. Lisa joins Greg and Len as co-anchor of KHOU 11 News at 6 and she continues to co-anchor KHOU 11 News at 10pm with Greg.
