Anchor Mike Barajas is no longer at KRIV-26, Fox’s O&O in Houston. His last day on the job was Jan. 18. He had been at the station since 1986. Mike had been anchoring the 9 pm newscast since 1992, as well as the 5 pm, since it debuted in Aug. of 2008.
The Houston Chronicle reports a KRIV station rep said they “mutually agreed to part ways.” Rumors about his departure had been circling around for weeks. First, there was talk he was on vacation. Earlier blog reports had people at the station saying he was still part of the news team, even though he wasn’t on the air, raising speculation they might be negotiating his contract.
