KHOU Meteorologist Hiccups His Way Through Forecast

Here’s another video clip to add to our schadenfreude series.

David Paul, chief meteorologist for Houston CBS affiliate KHOU battled a bad case of hiccups all the way through a recent weathercast.

Paul successfully made it through his segment, but not without multiple stops and starts drawing out what sounded almost like jealousy from co-anchor Lisa Hernandez who told him, “Only you could pull off hiccups in severe weather.” To which he replied, “I made it through.”

KHOU’s David Paul Named Chief Meteorologist

David Paul has been named chief meteorologist at KHOU, the CBS affiliate in Houston.

Paul joined KHOU in 1996, serving as the station’s weekday morning meteorologist for more than 15 years. In tktktk, he moved to the evening shift, delivering forecasts on the 4, 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.

In a statement announcing the promotion, KHOU news director Phil Bruce called Paul “completely natural and always glad to meet a new friend.”

“David knows the ups and downs of Gulf Coast weather, and that kind of expertise is invaluable when it comes to staying on top of dangerous conditions and giving our viewers the information they need to stay safe,” Bruce said.

Paul replaces Gene Norman, who left KHOU in November.

Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman Out at KHOU

After four years as chief meteorologist at KHOU, Gene Norman has parted ways with the Houston CBS affiliate.

General manager Susan McEldoon told the Houston Chronicle in an email that Norman “left KHOU TV to pursue new opportunities in weather forecasting and meteorology.” Norman was on the air an hour before the statement was made, the Chronicle reports.

McEldoon said David Paul will take over on the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts on a temporary basis. Chita Johnson and Mario Gomez will also contribute.

Chita Johnson to Mornings, David Paul to Afternoons at Houston’s KHOU

Changes are coming to the weather team at KHOU, the CBS-affiliate in Houston, media blogger Mike McGuff reports.

Chita Johnson, currently the noon and 4 p.m. meteorologist, moves to the morning newscast, where she will work alongside co-anchors Lily Jang and Ron Trevino. The current morning meteorologist, David Paul, will move to the 4 and 5 p.m. newscasts.

Gene Norman will still handle the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts, and Mario Gomez will continue as the weekend meteorologist. A station spokesperson told McGuff the changes go into effect on September 3.

Ron Trevino Returns to Houston Mornings at KHOU

Starting next Monday, Ron Trevino will be in the anchor chair for KHOU’s morning show — again.

Trevino used to anchor the morning hours on the Houston-area CBS affiliate with Deborah Duncan. This time around, he will join Christine Haas, Katherine Whaley and David Paul.

“Waking up at 2:30 every morning to be at work so early? Well, I will have to get used to that all over again,” Trevino told Houston media blogger Mike McGuff. “I’m buying all new alarm clocks.”

Also at KHOU, Saturday morning anchor Allison Triarsi is leaving her weekend anchor post to return to reporting full time. KHOU Director of Programming Lisa Trapani Shumate says the station will fill in Saturday mornings with various staff members.
