KPRC 2 hires fmr. beauty queen, Sharron Melton vs Lily Jang and more







I told you in early January that KHOU 11 hired Lily Jang for morning anchor from KCPQ Q13 Seattle. Jang is back in her hometown of Houston and already has a channel 11 promo ready (embedded above). The Langham Creek High School grad is obviously already working at KHOU, but officially starts on the morning news next Monday.

"I am incredibly blessed that KHOU is giving me this opportunity," Jang previously told mikemcguff.com. "Excited to finally be home where I grew up and my parents can watch me."

KTRK 13 morning anchor Sharron Melton rejoins Tom Koch

Speaking of mornings, over at KTRK 13, anchor Sharron Melton has been MIA for a while. Well, she came back this week after recovering.

"I so want to thank all of you again for your thoughts and prayers," Melton told her Facebook page fans. "I know you made a difference."

And for good measure...I hear former KPRC 2 anchor Don Armstrong (and big voice over/talent guy) was reporting from Sky Eye HD recently.

KPRC 2 anchor Daniella Guzman to co-anchor with Lester Holt's son at NBC 5 WMAQ Chicago

Enjoy KPRC 2 weekend anchor Daniella Guzman while you still can. In March, Guzman is going to Chicago to be the weekday morning anchor at NBC owned and operated NBC 5 WMAQ.

Chicago media blogger Robert Feder reports Guzman's new co-anchor will be Stefan Holt. Last name ring a bell for NBC watchers? Stefan Holt is the 24-year-old son of NBC News anchor Lester Holt who joined the NBC station last year. I bet it was that cool font on his resume that got him this job.

KPRC 2 hires former Miss Lafayette, KLFY Lafayette reporter Alexandra Lewis

And here is a second note to the Guzman fan boys. I know you are losing your weekend highlight, but before you get too depressed, KPRC 2 just brought on a new reporter who is a former Miss Lafayette and 3rd place finisher in Miss Louisiana! Ca c'est bon. Fall in love with KPRC weekends all over again!

 Former KLFY Lafayette reporter Alexandra Lewis is now on the KPRC airwaves (as a freelance reporter from what I understand). Go look at her official Miss Louisiana contest page. I know where your priorities are, if you get around to it, here is one of her stories that aired on channel 2 last weekend.

  4. Alex Lewis is fabulous! Been a fan of her work since Passé Partout. Glad to see her back on the air.

  5. Based on your link to Lewis' first video fr KPRC, it's obvious that:
    1. Guzman ain't on Adkins
    2. KPRC's interview process looks like:
    A. Do you have implants?
    B. Are you potentially attractive to horny young non-money sending men we can call an advertising base?
    ...Q. Do you have talentvorvthe ability to seal coherently and with a non-nasally or condescending voice?

  6. I still miss Lucy Noland. Lisa Hernandez looks like she's on 33 and a third and the others are 45's..she's a little slow and not exactly bursting with personality....can't adlib....boring....at least Jang has a better personality than Haas...although I thought has was prettier.

  7. That Lewis chick was on air this morning covering the Galveston fire. She was freaking horrible. And Reyna was just as bad anchoring, flubbing line after line, losing her mic....how much longer before they out her where she belongs - as a donut runner?

    1. Reyna a donut runner??? The hate continues...

      Why is it always the more-attractive women that get bashed so much on this blog? The hate for Sachse, Reyna, Freeman runs rampant. Pathetic. Welcome to the club Ms. Lewis.

    2. It's not just Sachse, Reyna, Freeman. Hernandez, Johnson, Bomke get a lot of hate too.

    3. That KPRC morning show would have been long dead. Reyna gave it life! Boy you must be kin to one of her competitors.

  8. Reyna is my FAV and was a breathe of fresh air on the anchor desk. And Lewis is almost as gorgeous as she is. I can dig this combo!

  9. Reyna is not attractive. A d her head us as big as a VW bug.

    1. I can picture your evil grin while posting. It's not Jennifer Reyna's "fault" that she is gorgeous!

  12. Miss Lewis is so beautiful! What a great addition the the KPRC team. Nef, Irika, Mary, Jennifer, Dom, and Rachel are all so beautiful. Alex I love your voice, and Nef I love your lips.

  14. I have been a fan of KTRK-TV morning new for quite some time now. Since
    Sharron Melton has left as the anchor woman I detect a lot of tension and I just
    don't enjoy watching chanel 13 morning news any longer. There are too many personalities at that new desk and it is not working.

    1. I totally agree, It's hard to watch since Sharron is not at the anchor desk......apparently the teleprompter is hard to read because Simica and Elissa keep stopping in mid sentences........make it hard to follow......I miss Sharron
