"Today is my last day at KHOU," Delony tweeted. "I love this station, and I love my colleagues here. After 15+ years in the business, I am ready to try something outside of the daily grind of TV news. It's been fun, my friends."

I hear Delony is joining the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) communications department.

Delony joined KHOU's digital team July 9, 2012.

Before channel 11, Delony, who was born and raised in Houston, started at FOX 26 KRIV as an assignments editor and later, a senior web producer, for the station's new web department. Houston TV viewers will remember Delony as the station's tech reporter known as "My Tech Guy." 

The Texas Southern University cum laude grad worked as a production assistant for TV shows such as Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and Extreme Makeover during college. He also worked as a production assistant for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.

While in high school at Fort Bend ISD's Hightower High School Media Academy, Delony won a Telly Award for his video essay on the attacks on 9/11.

Also leaving the KHOU digital department is senior digital content producer Lisa Carter.

"[Six] years, 3 newsrooms, multiple hurricanes & floods, a global pandemic, elections, 2 World Series, a Super Bowl, an NCAA Championship game & SO MUCH MORE in between," Carter tweeted.  "Thank you to everyone who has been part of my KHOU journey."

Carter is joining the MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Prior to channel 11, Carter was a production assistant for ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut where she worked on such shows as Sports Center, Outside the Lines and Sport Science.

Before ESPN, Carter was a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

She earned a master’s degree in Interactive Publishing from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and a bachelor’s in Mass Communication–Print Journalism from Texas State University.

A member of the Association of Women in Sports Media and the Society for Professional Journalists, Carter was also a fellow with the Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Fla.
