KHOU launches Sunday morning newscast

KHOU 11 launches its first ever Sunday morning newscast


KHOU 11 quietly launched #HTownRush Sunday morning today at 7am with anchor Lauren Talarico and new meteorologist Addison Green.

UPDATE
Addison Green leaves KHOU 11

I say quietly because if my readers hadn't alerted me, I wouldn't have known this debut was coming.

It's big news because I never remember channel 11 having a Sunday morning newscast.

"Our first Sunday morning newscast ever by the way," Talarico echoed on a Facebook video. "We are going to be on every Sunday, KHOU will have a newscast every Sunday morning starting at 7 o'clock."

I wasn't the only one not expecting this change.

The ontvtonight.com TV schedule site listed a broadcast of First Baptist Church Houston in that time slot for today.

#HTownRush Sunday morning runs ahead of CBS' "Sunday Morning" with host Jane Pauley...in my opinion one of the best network news shows on the air.

UPDATE
A channel 11 viewer asked me where this leaves anchor Ron Trevino. Talarico said in the video that Trevino would be anchoring the weekend evening news like normal. What this means for his Saturday morning anchor gig...I am not sure yet.

(Thanks Kevin)
