Xavier Walton now KHOU 11 weekend anchor

When Kimberly Davis joined the KHOU 11 HTownRush morning crew as an anchor this summer from KYW Philadelphia, Xavier Walton seemed to just disappear from the AM show named after a hashtag.

At the time, he told viewers on social media that he was moving schedules.


Steeleworkers unite to fight Alzheimer's disease! 

I've given you free Texas media news for 16 years, now I need your help!  I'm teaming up with Dayna Steele to unite the 101 KLOL Steeleworkers and end Alzheimer's! 

Both of our mothers died from this terrible disease. 

Please join or donate to our "Steeleworkers" Walk to End Alzheimer's team today!



Now, Walton's bio has been changed to note he is a weekend anchor for the TEGNA Houston station.

Walton joined the KHOU morning newscast back in 2019 from the weekend anchor chair at WCNC Charlotte, North Carolina. He took over AM duties from Lisa Hernandez (now at KPRC 2) and Russ Lewis (now retired).

So does that mean anchor Ron Treviño is off weekends and officially the 4pm news anchor? 

While Treviño's bio has not been changed from saying weekend anchor, and none of his social bios say anything about the 4pm news, it seems that weekday newscast with Rekha Muddaraj seems like a comfortable spot for the longtime channel 11 anchor at the moment!

There are KHOU viewers who still come on my social comments to complain about Treviño and Lily Jang leaving the morning newscast back in 2016
