“Sherman is passionate about covering the issues that are often overlooked or ignored, and we are excited he will have the opportunity to bring those stories to light to help the community,” said KRIV vice president and news director Susan Schiller.


“I’m elated to be a part of the FOX 26 team and make Houston my home. I already have friends and family waiting to greet me there, in this culturally diverse city rich with opportunities.”
