HOUSTON - Oct. 9, 2018 was declared “KHOU-TV Day” in the City of Houston.

Mayor Sylvester Turner awarded anchor Mia Gradney and our outgoing general manager Susan McEldoon with the award Tuesday at City Hall.

The honor was given for KHOU’s continuing coverage during Hurricane Harvey even though KHOU employees had to evacuate the building.

It’s something several councilmembers brought up Tuesday during the lighthearted celebration.

The proclamation also recognized KHOU’s commitment to the community and celebrated the new KHOU Avenida Studio at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
