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

Lily Jang, an anchor at Seattle Fox-affiliate KCPQ, is leaving the station after seven years.

“I’m leaving Q13 and moving home to Houston,” she wrote on Facebook. “My immigrant parents worked their entire lives for my brother and me and gave us our American dreams. Now that dad’s facing Parkinson’s, I’m leaving a job I love for my family that comes first.”
