KHOU 11 anchor shuffle 2014

KHOU 11's noon and 4pm anchors shift seats

Shern-Min Chow
A KHOU 11 viewer summed it up best this week when he posted on anchor Shern-Min Chow's Facebook page, "The question of the day: Will [Shern-Min Chow] be on the air at noon or 4 or some other time? Oh, the mystery of it all!!"

Viewers have noticed that the station's noon newscast with anchor Katherine Whaley and the 4pm show with anchor Shern-Min Chow have looked a little different over the last few weeks and now we know it has more to do than just funky holiday and vacation schedules.

Who knows if this has anything to do with channel 11's new owner Gannett, but Houston's CBS affiliate is having an anchor reshuffling.

Katherine Whaley
Four PM news anchor Chow confirmed to mikemcguff.com that she will now anchor the noon news and main anchor Lisa Hernandez will add 4pm newscast duties. Noon anchor Whaley's station web bio has been changed to only mention she does morning traffic. Any reference to her anchoring the 12pm news has been scrubbed.

The male anchor part of the noon and 4pm seem to remain the same. Both noon/morning anchor Ron Trevino and 4pm anchor Len Cannon appear to still be firmly in their seats, but main anchor Greg Hurst was on the 4pm as of yesterday.

Surely Gannett will be making more changes. Email me if you catch any.

For instance, I posted this video clip yesterday that shows the new Gannett ending on a KHOU newscast.
