Sportscaster Tim Melton Announces His Exit From KTRK

Tim Melton, a veteran sportscaster at KTRK who has been off the air recovering from a stroke, told the Houston Chronicle that his contract with the ABC O&O has expired.

Houston media blogger Mike McGuff first spotted the absence of Melton’s bio on the KTRK website Thursday. Melton joined KTRK in 1981 and suffered a stroke in 2011.

“I can do a lot of things, but not everything the job requires,” Melton said. “I still hope to get back on the air. That’s always been my plan. The problem is that you never know how things are going to play out, and while the recovery process has been good, it has taken longer than I would have imagined.”
