Per your request, here is our statement:
KHOU appeared to be at an impasse with the city and we felt this was an opportunity to get answers. The city agreed to appear only if KHOU was not included on the show.
In an attempt to give our audience a fuller understanding of the situation we chose to move forward with a panel of experts that did include the city. Upon review, we felt the information presented did not add any more to the discussion and chose not to air the show.
