KHOU Houston Signs Lease For New Location
Tegna CBS affiliate KHOU Houston (DMA 7) has solved its headquarters problem caused by Hurricane Harvey, signing a lease for 43,000 square feet of space at 5718 Westheimer in Houston.
KHOU will occupy three floors that will include two studios, two control rooms, an open collaboration space for all content producing departments, technical operations, sales and executive offices. Occupancy is anticipated in early 2019.
“We’re delighted to have found a new, centrally located home for KHOU. 5718 Westheimer’s location near the Galleria district offers us ample studio and office space,” said Susan McEldoon, the station’s president-GM. “We’re grateful for the support of Houston Public Media, who stepped up to provide us with our temporary home after our building flooded due to Hurricane Harvey, but we’re eager to bring all of our team back together at 5718 Westheimer in early 2019.”
In May, KHOU will also begin broadcasting from a new downtown studio located at the George R. Brown Convention Center on Avenida de las Americas. McEldoon added, “This new street-level, glass front studio space will give our audience a front-row seat to all that’s happening across our city.”
