Adam Krueger joins CW39 Houston

Adam Krueger is joining KIAH to take over for Maria Sotolongo who announced her departure from CW39 Houston as chief meteorologist.  Krueger comes from Spectrum News Austin and Spectrum News San Antonio.


Here is what Krueger posted on Facebook:

After 12 amazing years at Spectrum News Austin & San Antonio (a.k.a. TWCN, YNN, News 8), I'm moving on to the next chapter of life.

In a few weeks I'll be the chief meteorologist at CW39 in Houston! I'm joining a newly formatted 6-10 a.m. show with a BIG focus on weather. Exciting stuff!

I will definitely miss Austin. It's where life happened... marriage, mortgage, the birth of my son and daughter, and friendships for life.

I'm so grateful to have worked with so many great people. And, as seen in these photos, my favorite memories are the ones away from the green screen. What a journey!

On this Labor Day weekend, I planned to not post anything at all. Then Sotolongo announced her channel 39 goodbye, and after I wrote about that news Saturday, the big tip came in that Krueger was coming to the Houston CW affiliate.

So instead of my one usual post on the weekend, I am giving you a bonus post over the holiday!

Just like The Fixx says, "One Thing Leads to Another."

As Krueger noted, he has been with the Spectrum News Austin and San Antonio cable channels for more than a decade. Heck, when he got there, they were still the Time Warner Cable News channels.

Anyone from Houston remember News 24 Houston, the joint Time Warner Cable/BELO cable news venture by any chance? Coincidentally hired was Lynn Huston to anchor.

Before moving into the local news cable world, Krueger was a meteorologist for FOX 29 KABB San Antonio (2006-2008) and KHAS Hastings, NE (2004-2006).

The Chicago native is a Purdue University grad.

(A big thanks to Gary Dinges!)
