Kyle Montgomery lands at Fox Sports' Prime Ticket hosting "Clippers Live" post KPRC

Former KPRC 2 sports anchor Kyle Montgomery to host "Clippers Live" for Fox Sports' Prime Ticket in LA

The last few days have been busy with news of former KPRC 2 staffers moving west. Friday evening I told you how former weekend morning meteorologist Mary Lee is heading to KING 5 Seattle. Now here's more news about another former weekend KPRC talent.

Ex-KPRC 2 weekend sports anchor Kyle Montgomery has  landed a new gig on Fox Sports' Prime Ticket hosting "Clippers Live" out of Los Angeles.

Montgomery, who left KPRC in early April, told me then he was leaving for something with more of a national presence. He was right about that since Fox's Prime Ticket covers Southern California, Central California, southern Nevada, and Hawaii according to Wikipedia.

Over the weekend, Montgomery also told me he plans to make appearances on another national network in LA but is not ready to reveal which one just yet.

"My time working at KPRC was a blessing for my career," Montgomery told months ago. "It's an experience that I will never forget. I want to thank the people of Houston for welcoming me with open arms, and for showing so much support."

Montgomery came to Houston's NBC affiliate from Raycom Sports' Atlantic Coast Conference channel where he had worked since 2011. Before that, Montgomery worked at NBA TV's GameTime and The Jump. From 2008-2011, he was with Turner Sports and hosted Cartoon Networks first sports show Run it Back. He also worked at WSFA 12 Montgomery, AL and WDAM in Hattiesburg, MS.

According to his bio, Montgomery was born and raised in Kansas City and graduated from Alabama State University.


  1. Sadly, I can't keep up with Channel Two and their ever changing reporters! About the time I wonder why I have not seen someone, I learn they have started work somewhere else. What's with that?

    1. The station is so good that employees can't wait to get out and show the rest of the world all that they learned there.

  2. It's the Prima Donnas Syndrome.

  3. C'mon ... they have plenty of reporters at 2 who've been there awhile. Phil Archer = forever. Mary Benton = 20 years. Robert Arnold = 15 years. Amy Davis, Joel Eisenbaum, Ryan Korsgard = 10 years. And, among anchors, Bill Balleza, Dominique Sachse, Courtney Zavala and Rachel McNeill have all been there at least for 10 years, minimum. The other stations have had turnover, too, lately ... especially 11. And Fox had a reporter earlier this year who split after 3 months max.

  4. Anon, Nancy Zambrano was the reporter who left Fox 26 after 3 or 4 months (she went back to Austin). Fox 26 is also losing Natalie Bomke to Chicago (she's the 3rd anchor to go to WFLD) and that station is becoming a revolving door for young reporters and anchors itching to leave Houston.
