Veteran Sportscaster Bob Allen Joins KHOU

Three months after signing off from KTRK in Houston, sports anchor Bob Allen is joining rival KHOU.

“Bob’s not just another TV sportscaster, he’s a Houston icon,” KHOU executive news director Philip Bruce said in a statement. “Having Bob on our team is an enormous plus. And I know Houston viewers will appreciate having him in their homes again each night, as they have for so many years.”

Allen spent 39 years at ABC O&O KTRK. He will join CBS affiliate KHOU as the weekday sports anchor on April 25.

“I’ve still got a lot of stories left to tell,” Allen said. “And I’m very excited for the opportunity to be covering the stories so many people care about on a great television station like KHOU.”
