This next post proves that if I try to actually leave my computer and have fun, big stuff happens in the Houston TV news world.

As I was attending the 'The Scott Kelly Out Of This World Tour: Rocking the One-Year Mission' on Third Rock Radio party with KLOL legends Pat Fant, Doug Harris, Donna McKenzie...etc., a Houston television anchor was reportedly being escorted out of the building.

Both FTVLive and TVSpy report that FOX 26 KRIV main anchor Don Teague is no longer with the station. FTVlive goes into a lot more detail.

Teague came to FOX Houston back in 2011.

Before that, he served as a network correspondent for CBS and NBC. Teague held anchor/reporter positions with KFMB-TV in San Diego, WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, and KFDX-TV in Wichita Fall/Lawton, Texas. He began his career as a general assignment reporter for KFXK-TV (then KLMG-TV) in Longview, Texas.

  3. It would be great if Mike Barajas was brought back. He should never have been let go in the first place.

  7. Channel 11 needs to get rid of Sherry Williams - she should have been fired long long time ago.

  8. I miss his class, professional manner with a strong sense of compassion. Smartly dressed. Clean cut presentation. Very few make this impression to the public.
