About me

Mike McGuff is a native Houstonian who has been blogging since 2005. He balances his time covering the Houston and Texas radio, television and newspaper media scene plus other interesting news concerning the Bayou City.

Professionally Mike has worked as a multiple Emmy Award winning web and TV producer at KTRK abc13 in Houston, freelance TV reporter at KIAH 39 and as a TV reporter/fill-in anchor and webmaster at KXXV Channel 25 in Waco/Temple/Killeen. His reporting work has also appeared on the ChicagoTribune.com, HartfordCourant.com and the CNN International television network.

Dubbed the "Father of Houston TV social media" on his own blog, Mike created the first Twitter and Facebook accounts in Houston while at KTRK abc13 in 2008. He later consulted KPRC 2 on Facebook in 2010.

Currently Mike is producing a documentary on the former Rock 101 KLOL and its continuing legacy.

Most importantly, he is a stay at home father.
