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.”
