Just as we saw Bob Allen move to KHOU 11 from KTRK abc13 last week, we are seeing KTRK grab a personality from other Houston TV stations.

 Roseann Rogers, aka "The Buzz Lady," is about to host a new show on the ABC owned station starting this Saturday.

Check This Out is a half hour show that, "showcases anything and everything Houstonians want to know about" according to the station's website.

Rogers, who has been a fixture in Houston for almost two decades, worked at KPRC 2 from 1995-2008 in first news then sales and KTBU Channel 55 from 2008-2010 where she was Regional Sales Manager, Marketing Director and Host of Houston's Daily Buzz.

 She left television after KTBU and worked at Finger Furniture as the Director of Marketing/PR from 2010-2012 (you might have seen her in TV commercials for the store).

In 2012 she joined John Daugherty Realtors as the Director of PR and Business Development where she still works today.

PR and marketing might be her focus now, but journalism and the media are still in Rogers' blood as she contributes to magazines like PRIME Living - The Luxury of Choice, Bay Area Magazine and Intown Magazine.

Now she can add TV back to that list.

"I am very excited about the new show Check This Out and working with ABC 13," Rogers told "People have been wondering if I’d ever go back on TV and now I am. Although, I am keeping my day job!"

Rogers will be joined by producer Christina De Haven who was formerly the Director of Local Commercial Production at KPRC 2. According to the station, Rogers and Haven have produced more than 50 half hour specials together.

Check This Out will work in the same way as KHOU 11's Great Day Houston which accepts sponsorships for segments. It will produce new episodes at different points throughout the year.

Check This Out, May 4th at 10AM, KTRK abc13
