Here’s the Roundup for the Week Ending July 21

By Kevin Eck 

Happy Friday to all who celebrate! In this week’s edition of stories we didn’t get to this week for one reason or another, we see a longtime Buffalo feature reporter is calling it a career after 40 years and an Atlanta morning anchor who used to play the sports ball for the local men’s professional major league baseball team gets his own bobblehead!

Here we go:

In Buffalo, New York, WKBW feature reporter Mike Randall’s three-year plan to stay at Eyewitness News is going to end on August 24 after he reaches the 40-year milestone next month. Click here for more.


Kyle Jones, NBC Connecticut’s reporter based in New Haven, will soon be stationed inside the studio. She has been named anchor of the Saturday 6 p.m. and 11 p.m news on NBC Connecticut, beginning next weekend. Click here for more.

Fox 26 Houston’s newest anchor Anthony Antoine made his big debut on the news channel’s evening newscasts on Monday. He’ll be delivering nightly news alongside fellow evening anchors Rashi Vats, Caroline Collins, and meteorologist Remeisha Shade. Antoine replaces former evening anchor Jonathan Martin, who left the channel in April after seven years to join Atlanta’s NBC news station 11 Alive as a weekday anchor.  Click here for the story.
