KHOU 11's Sherry Williams leaves 4:30am for 4pm; to anchor Saturday mornings too

Some more anchor changes at KHOU 11 are on the way. First Ron Trevino returned to mornings, an anchor slot opened on the weekends, and then Lucy Noland went to anchor the 6pm show at KNBC 4.

Now I have more anchor moves for you, some that relate to what I've already mentioned.

On this morning's KHOU 11 4:30am newscast, anchor Sherry Williams said goodbye. But don't worry, she'll still be on KHOU 11. Williams will move her on air appearance 12 hours or so to the new KHOU 11 News at 4 newscast as a reporter (the new show starts this coming Monday by the way replacing Oprah). That newscast, as you might remember, will be anchored by Len Cannon and meteorologist Chita Johnson will do the weather.

But that's not all! Williams will also anchor the KHOU 11 Saturday morning newscast starting in September. That means the before mentioned Ron Trevino and co-anchor Christine Haas will jump in the anchor chairs at 4:30am to replace Williams' current position.

She said she will miss her "early risers" but is excited to be on the new show.

Williams is of course well known in the Houston TV market. Before KHOU 11, she was one of the original main anchors at KIAH 39, back when the station had decent ratings and NewsFix was not on the radar. Previous to that she worked as a reporter at Fox 26 KRIV. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
