New KPRC 2 weekend anchor Irika Sargent has big debut



UPDATE FEBRUARY 13, 2014
Irika Sargent to leave KPRC for WFOR Miami

New KPRC 2 weekend anchor Irika Sargent is already causing a splash in these current calm Houston TV news waters. I admit I did not catch Sargent's debut this weekend, but clearly some of those who did were interested enough to find out more information about her on my blog.

I mention this as a note of interest because many times I blog about a reporter/anchor type coming to town, they hit the airwaves and I don't see a blip in traffic concerning them. So basically, some KPRC 2 viewers are showing respect for the new Sargent of Houston TV news.

It was already covered in my last post how Sargent practiced law in New York City at the international law firm of Greenberg Traurig LLP, but according to her recently posted bio on click2houston.com, we now know Sargent
loves martial arts and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

So she has a law degree and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do? Heck, it's getting to the point that I'm getting too intimidated to post about Sargent anymore! Welcome to the Bayou City Irika, please don't get mad at me.

You can catch Irika Sargent and Joel Eisenbaum weekend evenings on KPRC 2.

  3. I'd rather watch Daniella

  4. Guzman should becomeca stay at home mom. Irika is so much better, and her voice isn't nasally and monotone.

  5. Someone is jealous of Guzman...really Irika is good and all but Daniella Guzman is a lot better, plus she is hot.

  6. She is terrible. All of that education and she can't read a teleprompter. Maybe a shot of charisma would help too...

  7. No thanks. Shaped like a pear and a voice that puts you to sleep.

  8. So good to see Zavala back and the inept Reyna no longer playing anchorwoman on weekends. Welcome back.

  9. Reyna was doing good in the mornings, don't hate.

  10. It's not always about jealousy. Some may just like Irika a lot more and I can definitely see why.

  11. I'm not sure how some of you measure "good" or "successful", but Reyna's laughable tenure as weekend anchor proved that she's Peter Principled as a traffic rumorer in tight shirts and with no camera close-ups.

  12. Laughable?! Please, Reyna did a great job, and my measure of "good" or "successful" is more than what you think. I just assume you people are just jealous, she is a pretty good traffic reporter/anchor, and has more talent you people can gather in your lifetime. Goodness, I can't believe jealousy is growing among you.

  13. Don't mistake "truth" for "jealousy". She was terrible, out of her league, and frankly she doesn't belong.

  14. She was not terrible, and even if she was not up to par on her skills, she's young and she's just a beginner in the anchor chair. I know for sure that your criticisms against her isn't the "truth", it's jealousy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You can try to defend Reyna an her lack of skills all you want. In the end, as the Simpson's "Comic Book Guy" says, she was/is the "WORST....ANCHOR....EVER"!!!

  16. That title of "Worst. Anchor. Ever" goes to Vicente Arenas not Jennifer Reyna.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ok. Worst Male and Female Anchors, respectively. Ever.

  18. Irika, we know KPRC's idiotic producers make anchors ask asinine softball followup questions of reporters. But do not keep doing this as there is no upside. The only thing worse Ghana the questions are the deer in headlights answers you get from Taghi and the rest.

  19. No Worst Female Anchor goes to Christine Haas.

  21. It's really a shame to see the hate that jealousy can cause. someone is beautiful and successful ... Always gets the target on their head. Stop hating! Or post without an "anonymous"....loser.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It appears some people who are posting here are simply too emotionally vested, and thus they cannot have an impartial opinion on the talent of some local news people. As some person already said, truth/opinion does not necessarily equal jealousy.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh really? Let me guess you guys are also new anchors with lots of money, yeah I don't see how you guys have any reason to NOT be jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aren't you posting under "anon"? I guess that makes you a loser too! I've seen Jennifer without makeup and she does not even look like the same person. I think you have to learn not to believe everything you see. Just because you think someone is "beautiful" does not mean they have talent! Beginners don't belong in a major market!

    ReplyDelete
  25. She has talent, regardless of her looks. Besides, if you accuse me of being "anonymous" why are you too under that label? Stop accusing people of stuff when you do it too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Good to see that Hoochie Momma's got her back...

  27. Anon at 7:48... Baby, go back and read your post at 8:32 am. Didn't you accuse us "haters" of posting under "anon". That's why I made that comment. Please, learn how to read. Do these women have any "educated" men that are in love with them?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Educated men hate fat housewives like yourself. After high school you got fat and put a few dozen pounds on. It's ok. You are beautiful to your children I'm sure. To everyone else, you're a nobody. It sucks to be you so much that you come on here to bash a pretty woman just trying to do her job.

    I'm convinced that these slobs on here work in the same newsrooms as these women they bash. I'm also convinced that they smile to their faces everyday then come on here to talk smack. So sad. I hope all of these reporters come on here and laugh at the jealous rants these slobs post.
