Longtime Houston Medical Reporter to Retire


It's and end of an era in Houston TV news.

Saturday night, Christi Myers announced her upcoming retirement from KTRK at an unofficial station party and everyone in attendance was shocked.

Myers has been a staple of Houston TV since the 1980s - working at KHOU, KPRC and KTRK. 

Beyond longevity in an industry when you're hot one minute, and the next not, Myers is the last Houston TV reporter standing in the medical news world.

Mike McGuff says that there was a time when every Houston television station had a dedicated health reporter. Considering Houston is home to the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, you would think medical reporting would be a priority in this city. Not anymore. Now most health reporting consists of an anchor telling us about the latest fat removal procedure.

It's unknown if KTRK will hire a full-time medical reporter to take her place.

She signs off for good at the end of the month.
