Who can forget Eileen Faxas, former KHOU consumer reporter (a.k.a. "Defender") and part-time anchor?
In her reports, Faxas introduced the groundbreaking method of using wacky sound effects (second item) and Benny Hill-type sped-up motion (second item) to illustrate how she was Protecting Houstonians (third item).
And now that career has brought her back to Houston, where she's currently appearing in the touring version of Mamma Mia! at the Hobby Center.
Fox 26 -- not KHOU -- has the scoop.
Faxas is in the ensemble in the show, although she also understudies one of the star roles.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
