José Griñan announced his retirement from FOX 26 Houston Television KRIV after 30 years with the station. The station says he will continue to anchor mornings with Melissa Wilson at FOX 26 until the end of June 2023. “We will certainly miss him,” Wilson commented on the Mike McGuff Facebook page. “What a career,” FOX 26 morning anchor Sally MacDonald posted on Facebook. “Can’t imagine our mornings without him. Congratulations Jose!” Griñan was the first anchor on FOX 26’s morning newscast back in August 1993, back when the studios were located where Central Market is today on Westheimer. He came to Houston from KDFW 4 Dallas-Fort Worth (before it was a FOX station) where he was an anchor/reporter. Griñan’s bio says that he was one of the first journalists on scene of the Branch Davidian siege near Waco. Previously he served as a correspondent/host of “Crime Watch Tonight” and freelance reporter for CNN. Griñan was in Miami at WTVJ 6 Miami TV and WCKT Miami Television (now WSVN 7) with time at the Satellite News Channel in between.
