Alan Shoemaker has been located!

I have received many questions about the whereabouts of former abc13 KTRK Houston meteorologist Alan Shoemaker.

Thanks to reader Toban, Shoemaker has been found at KOB 4 Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he has been since November 2023. My El Paso readers will recognize former KTSM 9 News anchor Trevor Thompson who is now the KOB evening anchor.

After leaving KRGV Channel 5 News in the Rio Grande Valley in December 2022 to fill in at channel 13 for Rachel Briers, who was on maternity leave, Shoemaker was at KTRK until April 2023. His departure left Houston TV viewers wanting more as evident from the flood of messages in my email box.

Trying to be a good media blogger, I reached out to Shoemaker, but never heard back from him.  Now we know when I quit, Toban can take over! 

Shoemaker had been with KRGV since August 2005.  

Before the RGV, he worked for WKOW 27 News in Madison, WI, and NBC Montana KECI in Missoula, MT. 

The Mississippi State University grad and Ball State University master's degree earner got his TV start at WTVA 9 News in Tupelo, Mississippi.
