Robert Springer to leave KHOU 11 GM role

Robert Springer

Robert Springer tells me he is leaving his role as President and General Manager at KHOU 11 Houston.

"I have absolutely loved my time in Houston and with KHOU 11," Springer told  "Just an amazing team and an incredible community."

Springer added that his last day with KHOU 11 will be Friday, April 12, 2024. I have asked him to keep us updated on his future plans.

When former KHOU GM Susan McEldoon announced her retirement in March 2018, Springer was hired to succeed her. He arrived the following August and took the job in January 2019 when McEldoon officially retired.

Springer came to KHOU and Houston from TEGNA's sister station, 9NEWS KUSA Denver, where he was director of advertising and promotion.

In addition to his KUSA duties, Springer worked with the TEGNA Marketing Leadership Team, collaborating with stations in markets 17-39. Additionally, he played a crucial part in successfully launching the Denver-produced daily news and entertainment program, "Daily Blast LIVE."

He transitioned to KUSA from another TEGNA station, KARE 11 Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he contributed to the news department, art department and was a promotions writer and producer. His contributions earned him regional Emmy awards, a Telly award, a Minnesota Broadcasters award, numerous Colorado Broadcasters Awards, a Promax BDA award, and the TVB Emma Award.

Springer holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern New Mexico University.
