I don’t often get to watch local morning shows for a variety of reasons, mostly revolving around sleep and my son’s dictatorial control of the remote. But I have tried to change my routine slightly. For one thing, my pal Rob McCollum is now a co-host for Channel 8’s Good Morning Texas. For another, I’ve discovered the secret weapon of Fox 4’s Good Day program: Fiona Gorostiza. Nominally, she is a fill-in meteorologist, taking over when Evan Andrews is off doing whatever. But she also has her own segment, “Fun with Fiona,” which is what I caught today at the gym. Good times. A quick scouting report:
– Grew up in the Philipines.
– Served as a producer for Robin Leach of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous.
– Has a third-degree black belt in taekwondo, and holds three world titles.
