Katherine Whaley Leaving KHOU

katherine whaleyAs Darby Douglas returns to KHOU as morning traffic reporter, Katherine Whaley — who has been in that role since 2009 — is leaving the Houston CBS affiliate. The Houston Chronicle has details:

Whaley, a graduate of Memorial High School and Rice University who joined Channel 11 in 2009, said she was offered a reporting position with the station that she said she “ultimately determined was not the right fit for me.”

She said she will continue with Channel 11 through most of August and is “engaged in conversations for upcoming opportunities.”

Houston media blogger Mike McGuff, who first reported the story, also talks to Whaley about what’s next.

Anchor Ron Trevino Marks 30 Years at KHOU

Morning anchor Ron Trevino is celebrating 30 years at KHOU, the CBS-affiliate in Houston.

“I’ve had the best job in the world … and on many occasions, the worst, because also too numerous to mention, are all the stories that brought you and me to tears,” Trevino writes in a guest post on MikeMcGuff.com. “Triumphs and tragedies and everything in between. Sorry if that sounds like a cliché, but that’s life. And ‘life’ is basically what I still cover, to this day.”

Trevino anchors KHOU’s morning newscast alongside Lily Jang and noon newscast alongside Katherine Whaley. Read more

Former KRIV Reporter Todd Duplantis Returns to Houston Local News After 5 Years

Todd Duplantis, who was a reporter at Houston’s KRIV for 9 years before leaving in 2006, has returned to television — this time at rival station KHOU.

Duplantis has been the morning traffic reporter on KHOU, the CBS affiliate in Houston, since August 30. He is filling in for Katherine Whaley. “It’s great to be back on the air in Houston and I’m really enjoying it,” Duplantis told Houston media blogger Mike McGuff.

Since his departure from KRIV in 2006, Duplantis has worked in public relations in the Houston area. He also worked as an assignment editor for KHOU from October 2009 to April 2010.

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.
