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.
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 mikemcguff.com 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.
