Houston Matters for Friday, Nov. 22, 2013

800px-Terminal_E_Waiting_areaThe holidays are quickly approaching, and for many of us, that means relatives and loved ones are flying in to visit. Or, you’ll be flying out to visit them. Either way, there’s a good chance you’ll be traveling through a Houston airport soon.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we’ll discuss what’s new at Houston’s airports, from new signs at Bush, to a new international terminal for Southwest at Hobby airport. We’ll welcome your questions and comments, praise and criticisms, of the Houston airport experience. Our guest: Carl Newman, General Manager of Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Also this hour…from a Houston hot dog franchise’s identity crisis, to department stores and radio stations in Houston getting a jump on Christmas, we examine “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” in Houston news this week.

And on this 50th anniversary of the assasination of President Kennedy, we talk with a longtime Houstonian and former LIFE Magazine photographer who covered three JFK visits to Houston – as well as the President’s funeral.
