Rashi Vats moves to Fox 26 KRIV from KBTX 3

Rashi Vats, KBTX 3 weekend anchor/reporter, is coming to Houston TV. The Bryan/College station has confirmed to me that Vats will work as a reporter at Fox 26 KRIV.

According to her bio, Vats has worked as a multimedia journalist at KRIS and KZTV in Corpus Christi and as a reporter for KXII in Sherman, TX. She joined KBTX in August 2011.

 Vats is a graduate of Texas Christian University where she was a reporter for the CNN-affiliated TCU News Now.

In 2007 she interned for the CBS Evening News in New York and was chosen as an International Radio and Television Society (IRTS) 2007 Summer Fellow. Vats also spent time overseas for an internship at the CBS London Bureau. You can read about some of her overseas adventure on her blog.

I hear a report that one of Vats' biggest fans is already in Houston. Apparently her fiance is KHOU 11 sports reporter Daniel Gotera who also worked at KXII in Sherman. Vats is also a Houston native.

Hopefully she decides to stick around longer in Houston TV than her Fox 26 predecessor.

(Thanks to my special someone)


  1. Good luck to her. Man, I had to do a double take. At first glance I thought this was that Tasti Hoagie chick who never cut it at KPRC despite her dad being a big entreprenauer in the city.

  2. KXII Sherman has been the first job for many a reporter, anchor, producer...they probably have the highest turnover of any news operation in the state of Texas!
