KPRC 2 grabs Gary Striewski from KGWN 5 Cheyenne, WY



UPDATE JULY 2013
Gary Striewski leaves KPRC for NESN


KGWN 5 in Cheyenne, Wyoming announced its sports director Gary Striewski is moving nearly 190 markets to KPRC 2 in Houston.

That's an even bigger jump than El Paso KTSM/KDBC (and KVEO Browsville) anchor Phillip Mena made to KPRC 2 weekends just weeks ago.

I hear Striewski is dumping the sports beat for news. But here is something interesting...he will be a multi-media news reporter supposedly.

When I hear "multi-media news reporter" I think backpack journalist or one-man band. If this is the case, I believe that makes Striewski the first one-man band at one of Houston's big three. KIAH 39's old news format was the only station in town that has employed MMJs to my knowledge.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Striewski also worked as a general assignment reporter at Longmont Cable Access in 2010. He graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver with a BA in Journalism in 2010.
