Houston Fox Station Eliminates 2 Positions in Newsroom

By Kevin Eck 

It seems news management at KRIV, the Fox-owned Houston station, is getting an overhaul.

A KRIV spokesperson confirmed with TVSpy two positions were eliminated today: assistant news director Howard Dorsey and managing editor Geoff Roth.

The station, which does 8 1/2 hours of news daily, will have a few newsroom management positions to fill. We reported last week, nightside executive producer Brandice Bailey is leaving for San Francisco CBS-owned station KPIX in March and Andrew Gillfillan joined San Francisco Bay Area NBC-owned station KNTV in January to ep the morning news.


Dorsey started at KRIV in September 2013. He was an ep at WPIX in New York before that. Roth started at the station in September 2014. He had been the vp of local content at WMYT-WJZY in Charlotte, N.C.
