KHOU Recognizes New Director’s Tireless Work During Hurricane Harvey

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KHOU honored its news director, Sally Ramirez and General Manager, Susan McEldoon for their dedication to the station and its employees during Hurricane Harvey.

Anchor Shern-Min Chow took cell phone video of the small ceremony and put together a video. It features speeches from the station’s digital director and assistant news director, Josh Hubbard, who told a story about how Ramirez helped save a family who was stuck on their roof.

“The faces you don’t see at KHOU 11 News who kept us afloat – no matter what Harvey did. Put this together for Our News Director Sally Ramirez & General Manager & VP Susan McEldoon,” Chow said in a Facebook post.


The Tegna owned CBS affiliate, lost its studio and newsroom to flooding.  They are working out of KUHT TV8, the PBS affiliate in Houston, temporarily.
