KHOU Adds Weekend Meteorologist

By Kevin Eck 

Houston CBS affiliate KHOU has hired Blake Mathews as its weekend meteorologist.

In July, Mathews announced he was leaving WJXT in Jacksonville because he wanted to be on-air full time. He’s worked at the station since December 2011.

“I learned a lot about myself and made lots of friends who have become my family,” he said at the time. “I’m not sure of my next stop but I will let everybody know once the details are finalized. Thanks for everything, Jax! You’ll always have a special place in my heart.”


Houston media blogger Mike McGuff, who first reported the news, says Mathews starts Sept. 6.
