Houston Anchor Collapses, Goes to Hospital

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Houston anchor Art Rascon is missing from the KTRK desk for the time being.

He was hospitalized yesterday after collapsing three times in the early morning.

“Life Happens. Because I live a very public life, I want to let you know what happened early this morning. After getting out of bed I collapsed three separate times for unknown reasons. Folks here at Memorial Hermann are taking good care of me, taking tests and looking into it. They have been terrific! ‬I’ll give an update soon. Thanks for your prayers,” he said on Facebook.


Later in the day, Thursday, Rascon provided viewers with an update that he was doing fine but the hospital’s “primary cardiologist and neurologist are taking a look.”
