KHOU will not return to the building flooded by Hurricane Harvey.
Since the storm, the Tegna owned CBS affiliate in Houston, has been working out of the PBS station in town.
The news about not moving back into the builing on Allen Parkway was made official yesterday. Here’s a statement from KHOU’s president and general manager, Susan McEldoon.
I recently shared with KHOU staff plans for our operations going forward. As you know, KHOU evacuated from our building at 1945 Allen Parkway during Hurricane Harvey. Within hours, we began working from Houston Public Media. They graciously welcomed us in and we plan to stay until we move to a new, permanent space. We will be able to announce more details on our permanent location in early first quarter of the New Year.
Our team has shown incredible resilience and flexibility during this time. As I recently reminded them, a building does not make a TV station. Our people do. We are proud to stand with the community as we rebuild together and thank all of our viewers and customers for their continued support.
