KTRK 13 taps Rebecca Spera for traffic duty

UPDATE 2/18/2013
KTRK 13's Don Nelson back on air after surgery

Rebecca Spera filling in on KTRK abc13 traffic duty has people talking

I got some questions about Rebecca Spera doing traffic on KTRK 13's morning news Tuesday. People wanted to know if she is taking over for Don Nelson.

From what I understand Spera is just filling in while Nelson is away. Many times, Vikki Taylor does fill-in for Nelson.

For those who don't know, Spera is busy on KTRK's .2 channel Live Well HD (available on .2 stations around the US). She hosts Mirror/Mirror which covers fashion and beauty secrets. The show also airs on KTRK.

Readers of this blog will remember that Spera was a top Twitterer for KTRK. She was also a hot Houston media single in CultureMap's Most Eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes party.

Before landing at KTRK, Spera was a producer and reporter for KHOU 11's Great Day Houston.

  1. I heard her the other day. She's not good at all. Nelson or Vicki Taylor need to come back soon.

  2. I am sure she is a sweet girl but she just does not cut it in the AM doing traffic, not a good fit for her.

  3. A reader just sent me this news:

    "Just saw Don Nelson at St Luke's Hospital Med Ctr with left arm in sling, waiting for passenger pickup."

    Feel better Don, feel better.

  4. From the Big Apple to the Hollywood Hills and the Windy City in between, Rebecca Spera covers the hottest fashions with grace, style and beauty few can match.

  5. Was Pooja Lodia hired from Florida to do the morning traffic when Don Nelson retires? I thought she do the "AM traffic gal" in Florida?

  10. And this morning, it's Bob Slovak filling in. Watching these two attempting to fill, it becomes obvious how difficult the job really is.

  11. Today Bob Slovak is doing the traffic. I do like Vikki much better than Rebecca. Don get well & hurry back.

  13. I have seen Bob Slovak do Sports, Downtown New Years Eve Party, If I remember correctly he did a behind the scenes of Broadway Shows in NYC, covered Dancing with the Stars, really enjoy watching him during the Mardi Gras Galveston Parades...I want to say he did a abc13 special on cirque du soleil a few years ago....HELL he can do it all....Why not Houston Traffic?
    You Go Bob!

  15. Who is that blond doing traffic for Don Nelson on channel 13? Oh yeah...Rebecca Spera. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am so ready for Don Nelson to come back. Rebecca doesn't do the traffic reports very well. Please put Bob or Vicky on until Don comes back.

  17. Hey Rebecca has improved and YES SHE EASIER ON THE EYES. VIKKI is an employee of Metro Traffic. Maybe Channel 13 and Metro couldn't come to an agreement.

  18. I soooo miss Don...just not the same in the mornings. The foursome is missing a vital ingredient to the mix....DON.!! I want my Don back...or atleast bring Vicky in until he returns...pleeease!!

  19. Vicky Taylor is terrible but I to not watch 13 because Sherron Melton is so annoying.

  20. Rebecca has the right energy for a morning show. She can mix traffic and entertainment news pretty easily. Don's the man though.

  21. Rebecca Spera "is your go to girl" for morning fun. When not filling in for Don Nelson, Spera brings you the latest fashion, beauty tips and deals on her "top rated" Live Well HD show 'Mirror/Mirror.' Check local listings in your town.

  22. I miss Don. Rebecca is too much before coffee. I want to reach into the tv and smack her and tell her to shut up

    ReplyDelete
  23. Rebecca has a good attitude for the mornings but she is absolutely terrible. Her words don't flow smoothly. Doesn't compare to the others at 2 and 11. Sounds very unsure. Vicki Taylor MAY not look like Rebecca but she is much more confident in her reports. Mike, Can someone give us an update on where Don is and why Vicki is not filling in these days?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I heard Tom say this morning that Don was home recovering from shoulder surgery. Sure wish they would bring Vikki bad as his fill-in. Rebecca sounds so silly.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't think you can compare their looks. Rebecca puts A LOT of effort in her appearance, Vicki does not. It's sad that people aren't smart enough to tell the difference between fake and real!

    1. Agreed. Vikki is a real person, funny personality, excellent speaking skills and I love her traffic reports. I though she was being groomed to take Don's place if & when he retires.

  26. I remember Rebecca when she did "Great Day Houston" and wasn't surprised when it didn't last, she is probably a very nice person but definitely should not be doing traffic or anything related to reporting. Bob Slovak was better - hands down> I could not believe that Vicki Taylor was not in for Don Nelson, is she still with abc13? I know that Don will probably have to be out again so PLEASE have VICKI stand in for him!!!! Don Nelson is absolutely the best and I love watching the 4 of them in the morning. It is fun, entertaining, and informative! I am hooked! Welcome back Don!!!!!
