Low ratings. Minerva Perez Issues

"KTRK should change out news and production management and create a new product for their ratings. ABC 13 stands by their employees, at least their Anglo employees, i.e. Ed Brandon 35 years, Dave Ward and Marvin Zindler…but they blame Minerva Perez (15 years) for the bad ratings? She is just a scapegoat for something else. Our Community needs to speak up and call and ask for Minerva Perez back in the mornings!!!" I don't really watch 13 news, I watch channel 2 in the morning. the reason I don't watch it is because 13 is very old school news programing. Not because of Minerva Perez but because of Ed Brandon, Dave Ward, and Marvin Zindler. Shouldn't these guys be retired by now. Same with their evenig crew, they are all just old school. 

jemezchick --- 7 years ago -

isn't he like 90? I'm gonna google his age. 

jemezchick --- 7 years ago -

Marvin Harold Zindler (born August 10 , 1921 ) in Houston that didn't take long to find..he is 85.

Marvin Zindler oogs me out! Hasn't he been on as long as Mattress Mac been savin' us money? Or longer? 

jemezchick --- 7 years ago -

Hasn't he been on as long as Mattress Mac been savin' us money? Or longer? probably been on since MM was in diapers. I met him once, MZ, 20 years ago, I rode in an elevator with him at Texas Childrens. He was pleasant, and had his 'people' with him, like bodygaurds. 

Mabbers --- 7 years ago -

He's somethin'. 

GCan --- 7 years ago -

When I moved from California as a teen and came to Texas I was already annoyed. The first two things that welcomed me on the tv were Mattress Mac and Marvin Zindler...I swore I had gone to hell. I've gotten over that initial teenage angst and these days, it's more a fond memory. 

Superwitch --- 7 years ago -

i watch fox 26 news in the morning and 2 at night 

gking --- 7 years ago -

I just checked out the link Denise gave us (above). "INSITE" is not a word. I guess reporters don't have to be gud speleres? 

Rachel --- 7 years ago -

Do you all remember Cheryl Keck? I thought she was awesome. She "disappeared" for a while and then I learned she had passed away! She had a two year old...so sad. I like the person that took Minerva Perez'z place though. 

JameehaTX --- 7 years ago -

OMG I was wondering what happen to Cheryl Keck 

Pet Lover --- 7 years ago -

Marvin and I share the same birthday...not the same year, though!!! LOL 

Syrah1214 --- 7 years ago -

That Marvin Zindler guy gives me the creeps. 

RRay --- 7 years ago -

Wellll I damn sure wont miss her. 

lolagirl --- 7 years ago -

Cheryle Keck died of lupus according to this (go a little past midway) http://www.maynardije.org/columns/dickprince/060120_prince/ 

RRay --- 7 years ago -

Marvin has been dead for 27 years. Ever seen weekend at Bernies??? ;) 

Clown Vomit --- 7 years ago -

A few years ago I was watching Marvin and some kind of glitch happened off-camera and he went ballistic on the teleprompter guy. Dave Ward just sat there with his mouth open. Good stuff. 

mdawg --- 7 years ago -

Gcan2!! I had the same welcoming! Oh lord! I have more respect for the news in Ca then here in Houston. All they show is bad stuff here, very rarely do they air good things! 

jimmy --- 7 years ago -

they (13) released her from her contract by mutual agreement. No other explanation given. 

Strait♥lover --- 7 years ago -

I'm a channel 11 girl:) I LOVE DAVID PAUL IN THE MORNINGS!!!! 

sniklefritz --- 7 years ago -

I read the LULAC item and just FYI, ABC 13 does not necessarily stand by it's Anglo employees. Remember Shara Fryer, who is now doing "Special Interest" stories. She was given the ultimatum of doing this or leaving because of her "age/looks". I was told this by an employee who works closely with the female employees of that station. Years ago there was a big stink about how women anchors were judged by their looks but it didn't count against a man. That was supposed to be taken care of but obviously it hasn't stopped. Apparently it isn't necessary to be attractive to be a regular reporter because there are some sad looking female reporters, especially on 13! Just thought I'd put my $.02 in since Minerva was let go because she's a Latino according to LULAC. 

Strait♥lover --- 7 years ago -

Minerva was let go because she's a Latino according to LULAC. If that was the case...why was she there so long??? They can't just now be firing her b/c she's hispanic!!! 

Clown Vomit --- 7 years ago -

Remember Shara Fryer, who is now doing "Special Interest" stories. She was given the ultimatum of doing this or leaving because of her "age/looks". What about Deborah Wrigley? It looks like her face is melting right before your eyes. Especially with those long, skinny earthworm lips...ugh. I cant even stand to watch her reports anymore. 

Hardshell --- 7 years ago -

Shara Fryer? I thought that's what naughty nuns do on the weekend! 

Cicero --- 7 years ago -

So because she's Hispanic LULAC thinks that she should be able to keep her job. What a joke. Don't they know that there are plenty of Female Hispanic news anchors. Not to mention all Hispanic TV Stations. 

jjfingrainalready --- 7 years ago -

I thought that's what naughty nuns do on the weekend! OMG, LOL at work! 

jjfingrainalready --- 7 years ago -

I think it's silly that Lulac is trying to make race an issue, especially since she was there FOREVER and they replaced her with a black lady! 

Cicero --- 7 years ago -

I think it's silly that Lulac is trying to make race an issue, That's what they're all about. ;) 

Melanie --- 7 years ago -

She used to live in my neighborhood in Sugarland but she didn't go by the last name Perez. Didn't know about this. 

jjfingrainalready --- 7 years ago -

That's what they're all about. ;) maybe they should change their name to LILAC
