According to his Bio, Collister has specialized in investigative reporting for most of his career since graduating from Sam Houston State University with a degree in broadcast journalism.
His bio does not mention any previous stations he's worked for.
“I am thrilled and honored to join 13-Eyewitness News and to be a part of one of the most prestigious investigative teams in the country,” Collister said in a statement issued by Channel 13 to the Houston Chronicle. “I look forward to adding to its legacy.”
Collister is also a licensed private investigator which I don't think I've ever seen before in an investigative reporter. He is also a multiple Emmy award winner.
Wayne Dolcefino's exit from the station last November was one of the biggest stories of the year for my blog. He has since started Dolcefino Communications LLC and is running as a Katy Independent School Board candidate.
His investigations had such impact on Houston that he will be hard for some people to forget.
This reminds me, we still have not seen KTRK sports anchor Tim Melton on the air since my last blog post wondering about his status.
