Houston TV anchors who were network stars

Since I recently posted about Univision West Coast correspondent for Network and Affiliate News, Raul Peimbert, coming to work at Univision 45 KXLN, I thought it would be a good time to look at other former network folks (I'm also counting cable networks) who are currently on the air in Houston. There have been others in the past too.


Anchor Keith Garvin spent time as an ABC News correspondent. I remember watching him on World News.

Main sports guy Randy McIlvoy spent years working at Fox Sports Net's Southwest Sports Report.

New weekend sports anchor Kyle Montgomery worked for the Atlantic Coast Conference Digital Network, NBA TV/ and hosted the first children's hoops show, Run it Back, on the Cartoon Network.

KHOU 11:

I remember watching Len Cannon on Dateline NBC. Cannon was also a backup anchor for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and Weekend Today.

KTRK 13:

Art Rascon was a CBS News correspondent (Watch Art report for CBS).

In between working at KTRK 13, Gina Gaston hosted an MSNBC show called Home Page with co-anchors Mika Brzezinski and Ashleigh Banfield. (Watch Gina on Home Page)

Fox 26 KRIV:

Anchor Don Teague worked both as a CBS and NBC correspondent. (Watch Don report for CBS)

If I forgot anyone who currently works on Houston TV and was a former network person - let me know. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
