KPRC 2 steals Nick Giovanni, the WJXT 4 utility guy




Looks like KPRC 2 has a new reporter (maybe MMJ) in its roster.

WJXT 4 sports anchor, reporter and producer Nick Giovanni has left Post-Newsweek Jacksonville for the company's Houston NBC affiliate.

As you can tell by his three jobs, he's willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done (more on that in a minute).

 According to his bio, Giovanni got his start at WJXT when the Super Bowl was in Jacksonville back in 2005 (the year after Houston's Janet Jackson induced Nipplegate).

Giovanni wrote in his bio the station needed a security guard for the weekend and as a high school student, he jumped on the gig. While a student at the University of Florida, he came back for three summers to work as a camera operater for the station's morning show.

He then covered the Gators for two years at WUFT in Gainesville before returning to WJXT.

And to prove this guy will do whatever it takes, embedded above is video of Giovanni going down a water slide, in reporter garb no less, for a story.
