KPRC 2 gets new news director Deborah Collura, plus her other duties

UPDATE MAY 05, 2014
KPRC ND Deborah Collura leaves for WCNC Charlotte

Many TV news directors feel they probably have enough responsibility with their respective newsroom. Not Deborah Collura.

She has just been named the KPRC 2 news director. This in addition to her duties as vice president of news for Post-Newsweek Stations (KPRC's owner).

Here is more about Collura's past from her bio:

She was the news director at WDIV-TV and solidified the NBC affiliate's reputation as an award-winning and top-rated Detroit news station.
Collura started at WDIV-TV in July 1997.
Prior to arriving at WDIV, she was vice president of news at the NBC affiliate, WTVJ-TV in Miami. At KTSP-TV in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Collura served as news director from 1991 to 1993. In Sacramento at KCRA-TV from 1987 to 1991, she became assistant news director after serving as an executive producer.
At KSDK-TV in St. Louis, she was a news producer from 1984 to 1986 and at WREX-TV in Rockford, Ill., she was a news producer and later became executive producer.

As I have mentioned before, Collura was already working from KPRC in the past few months.

Congratulations to Collura.

New KPRC 2 Houston GM is Jerry Martin


  1. What a waste of skin? Another freaking outsider. She has work in small major market experience. I feel sorry for those fools at KPRC...

  2. Small markets? Detroit? Miami? Minneapolis? Sacramento?

    All Top 20 markets.

    If you're going to make an argument - back it up with facts... or at least knowledge of the TV biz.

  3. KPRC is awful. Jen Bauer? Really? They need to fire half of the reporters/anchors and start over.

  4. I totally agree with the first comment.

  5. I agree... speak when you know what you are talking about. She has for sure worke in some major markets... Detroit-11, Miami- 16, Minneapolis-15, Sacramento-20.
