KPRC 2 anchors started congratulating her Friday on Facebook, TVSpy's On the Move mentioned it, so I think it's safe to say KVOA Tucson reporter Samantha Ptashkin is coming to KPRC 2.

"I am very excited to move to Texas," Ptashkin told mikemcguff.com. "I have heard great things about Houston and I can't wait to start living and working there!"

If she were in Houston on a day like this, she might stay put in Tucson.

Ptashkin, which is pronounced P-tash-kin, has been reporting at News 4 Tucson since February 2012. According to her bio, she previously worked for Fox 11 KMSB-TV Tucson as a reporter and weekend anchor and a reporter and noon show anchor at WREX-TV in Rockford, IL.

She is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She also minored in Spanish and studied in the city of Guanajuato, located in central Mexico.

According to an internal KPRC memo, Ptashkin starts February, 17th as a multimedia journalist (MMJ).

  1. I hope she's replacing one of their more annoying on-air air-heads (Reyna, Davis or Perez).

  2. All I know is that Fachel isn't even in Sochi yet and in already sick if seeing her face and their Olympic promos. I'm also sick of seeing Ape Comflenti, 2nd Grader Teyna and Perez Hilton babysitting for her while she's galavanting in Sochi

  3. Its the news, not a soap opera. Get a life people.

  4. Her vocal fry drives us nuts in our household!!

    1. she doen't fry that much... i think she's is pleasent.
