Lindsey Day exits FOX 26 KRIV

FOX 26 KRIV meteorologist Lindsey Day leaves the station...who is next?

Well, we didn't make it to Thursday this week before someone left or was let go from Fox 26 KRIV.

The Houston Chronicle reports that meteorologist Lindsey Day is leaving the FOX owned and operated station. I will probably get "who?" comments so I should add she hasn't even been at the station for a full year.

The paper did not say where she was going next.

Day came from KOZL & KOLR in Springfield, Mo. Before that she worked at WCTV Tallahassee.

If you're looking for a TV job, and think you have the mettle to apply, FOX 26 might be your entry to a top 10 market. Why? It's been widely reported the station has many job openings as of late.

Reporter Ashley Johnson transferred to another FOX station in January, then two executive producers left for San Francisco, then the assistant news director and managing editor were reportedly fired, followed by main anchor Don Teague being shown the door last Thursday and now Lindsey Day.

#FOX26forlife...or maybe for a year before you get canned or run for your life.

  1. My guess is that Fox 26 is doing all of this bloodletting to trim the payroll to make the operating costs lower (and selling price higher) for a potential sale or trade of the station. Most likely a new owner will have no interest in producing 50 plus hours of local news a week. They will probably trim back to more like 35 hours a week of local news. Much more money in just broadcasting reruns of sitcoms in some of the news time slots. In addition, the Fox 26 facility on the Southwest Freeway is three times the size that they need for a local TV station. It is only a matter of time before the building and land are sold or they consolidate the TV station into one area of the building and rent out the other two-thirds. It amazes me that they sit there and pay for utilities, property taxes and security on thousands of square feet of building space that they do not use. Very weak, not very creative, and lazy top management has always said that it would be too hard to consolidate the station into a smaller space. Easy to say when you are getting a big paycheck and the wasted operating costs are not coming directly out of your own pocket.

    1. Fox 26 News is worst news ever!

    2. When was the last time Fox sold an owned-station?
      Don't think your scenario is plausible.
      As long as it keeps making money, it will remain an O&O.
      (And with NFC games, it makes money no matter how poorly tun it is)

    3. They had a big studio because they used to film Texas Justice and Judge Alex there.

    4. The key to what you are saying is "used to". Fox 26 needs to change with the times. You should not continue to pay overhead on expensive real estate just because you "used to" do something. Time for some new management at the top.

    1. She's average-looking like almost all other women. It's called hair and makeup and sometimes surgery. Why don't you realize this? Have you not been around many women in the morning?

    2. Jealous?

      Delete
    3. Yes, you got me! Why wouldn't I be jealous of women who can't let people see them without makeup, filters, or their hair done and who have to have a surgeon open up their chests and put a foreign object in there, or bust their nose, so he/she can create a new one for them? Plus, be loved by unattractive men and men who are eventually going to cheat on them, because they were duped! They are just sooooooooo lucky! I think it's better to be called " jealous" than be a fool like you! Why else would you believe EVERYTHING you see? To tell you the truth, I don't see why people like you think she is so gorgeous. It's like Jennifer Reyna. The only think that I can figure out is that it's because of all things I said and because they are cute and not drop-dead naturally gorgeous women.

  4. Man I've been watching a lit of Lindsey Day since Chita got engaged. Now I guess I'll just rely on my weather apps.

  5. The News Director at FOX 26 is so incompetent, that's why the turnover rate has increased.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Scarlett Fakhar leaves next month.

    1. She will only be missed by the unattractive male viewers who love makeup, blond hair dye and nose and boob jobs. Does the news director decide what women will be on? Is that why so many of the fake, crappy radio women are on?

    2. You need a snickers cause you aint you when you're angry.

    3. Sad, you couldn't come up with something more original. I guess I was right. My description must have fit you! Which one?

    4. She posts workout pics all the time on Twitter, she is just as attractive w/o makeup as she is with makeup

      Delete
    5. First of all, if that was true, she wouldn't wear any makeup. Secondly, women use filters and beauty apps to make themselves look better in pics. Plus, I know lots of women will say they don't have any makeup on, or people like you will think they don't,when they actually do. Also, if a woman has her hair styled, your eyes will tend to go to the hair. This is why so many women have long hair. Now, do you understand? Don't believe everything you see. She is cute, but she is not a young Elizabeth Taylor

  6. WOW! I'm shocked that she's leaving considering she just joined last year!

    The exodus of Fox 26 continues!

    Anyone want to guess that D'Art Bebel's hostile leadership is alienating everyone ?

    How long before Angela Chen bails too ?

  7. For someone that's been close to Lindsey, she actually does plan to switch careers to become a fitness instructor. That's all I am allowed to reveal about her future.

    1. She's better suited for that. She seemed to have to always post pics of her working out. Low self-esteem, I guess.

  8. Natasha Geigel from News12 in NYC will be starting FOX soon FYI

  9. Man with Lindsey Day leaving and Chita Johnson getting married...Jennifer Reyna you now have a near monopoly of young male viewers.

  10. I really hope FOX 26 hires someone hotter than Chita and Lindsey combined.

  11. Anyone want to bet who bails from Fox 26 next ?

  12. Ill be betting Scarlett Fakhar

  13. Is this Coco chick they have on all the time a joke? I see her talking about AI and she is horrible. She talks over the other guy, doesn't speak proper English, doesn't know what she is doing, etc., but it seems like they keep bringing back. Now, she is talking about the Oscars. I just don't get it. Is she on, because she is the right ethnicity, because she dresses like a stripper, the pounds of makeup, because she is not educated, because someone has the hots for her? Can someone explain this to me? This station is horrific! They just aren't coming across as very professional.

  14. In a perfect world I would spend the Day with Samica Knight and the Night with Lindsey Day.

  15. Tomorrow morning will be one or the most farewell speeches Lindsey Day will be making!

  16. I will miss her she was good

  17. She chose to leave. This will sound crazy, but she has some kind of condition related to her bodybuilding/powerlifting days that makes it difficult to wake up early? I dunno, this is what I was told by someone at Fox26.

    She's changing careers, looking to get into fitness training or something like that

  18. She will alweys be in my heart!
    Eye luv her !
