KTRK GM Wendy Granato tests positive for COVID-19

KTRK abc13 is reporting that its own President and General Manager, Wendy Granato, has tested positive for COVID-19.

This is the second positive result for a Houston television staffer that I am aware of. The first positive COVID-19 test in the Houston TV world was channel 13 anchor Chauncy Glover.

COX Media Group on-air talent Adrian ‘Producer Hoss’ Perez was the only positive test that I am aware of in the Houston radio world.

The station says Granato contracted it from her 22-year-old daughter, Frankie:

Wendy and Frankie are both working from home and said they have made it through the worst part, and are feeling much better.

Frankie says she started showing symptoms after her boyfriend was exposed to the virus and was experiencing some symptoms.

It took four days to get Frankie's positive results back. That's when Wendy and her husband, John, immediately got tested. READ THE REST

John Granato, as many will know, is a long-running, popular Houston sports radio talks show host on ESPN 97.5 FM.
