Brandi Smith new KHOU Saturday morning anchor

"Surprise!" is one of the first words new KHOU 11 #HTownRush Saturday morning newscast anchor Brandi Smith says in her Facebook video announcing her new gig right before showtime last weekend.

Yes, Justin Stapleton and Brandi Smith are a couple

Since Smith already anchors the weekday version of #HTownRush, I guess this means she gets a day off in the middle of the week now. She was on the air Tuesday morning.

Suprises/quiet launches seem to be how a lot of new shows are debuted these days in the Houston media. You know, no promotion and then...poof...changes made with maybe a quick Facebook post ahead of time.

As I wrote the weekend before, KHOU quietly launched its first ever Sunday morning newscast.

Then 97.9 The Box KBXX quietly launched a new morning show replacing the long running Madd Hatta Morning Show.

Now, as for all the people asking me about what's happening to former Saturday morning anchor Ron Trevino...don't worry. He's still doing the weekend evening newscasts. If I were him, I wouldn't mind giving up a Saturday double shift. Yes, you read that right, he anchored the Saturday morning and Saturday/Sunday evening news.
