Fox owned-and-operated KRIV Houston is launching 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. newscasts weekdays starting Aug. 18.
Mike Barajas and Melinda Spaulding will anchor Fox26 News at 5:00 and Fox26News at 5:30, and Melissa Wilson will report “Healthworks” segments.
“This expansion is a natural next step for our station, allowing us to provide Houston viewers a full day of local news, weather and traffic,” vice president and general manager D’Artagnan Bebel said. “With the addition of Fox26 News at 5:00 and Fox26News at 5:30, KRIV will now produce the most hours of weekday news in the market.”
