KPRC 2's Nefertiti Jáquez to WCAU, KRIV's Kane to Central Florida News 13

Three years ago, I wrote how then new KPRC 2 reporter Nefertiti Jáquez had been very popular at Philadelphia's Fox 29. I'd say she made a splash in Houston over the last few years too. In fact she made my Top 5 Houston TV Twitter users list.

Guess it's no surprise that she's heading back to Philly, but this time to NBC10 News WCAU.

"I have recently decided to pursue my career goals closer to home, and my family," Jáquez told mikemcguff.com. "I will be leaving at the end of the year. I am truly leaving here with mixed feelings; happy about the next step in my life, but sad to be leaving such a great city and community."

Jáquez leaves us December 31st.

ANOTHER HOUSTON TV REPORTER MOVES ON

I told how Fox 26 KRIV reporter Kristin Kane was leaving the station in November. That time has come and gone and she gave her goodbye message. Well, Kane just announced her new gig on Facebook last night:

Guess who's moving back to Florida?!?! I am so excited to announce I'm joining Central Florida News 13 in Orlando as an Anchor/Reporter! I start January 14th and I will be anchoring Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings and reporting Monday mornings. Extra long anchoring hours will allow me to have 3 days off every week. I'm thrilled to be joining a very talented news team and Tom & I are looking forward to calling Orlando home!
