Yesterday we learned Natasha Barrett was in the process of arriving at KTRK abc13, but today it's that reporter Simon Gutierrez is already long gone.

Even though Gutierrez still appeared on KTRK's website this week, on Twitter he's excited about starting his new gig at FOX-12 Portland KPTV.

Gutierrez arrived at KTRK last January. Before that he worked for five years at KSAT 12 News San Antonio. Previously he worked three years in Hartford, Connecticut, and for two at ESPN.

He is from Elmira, Oregon and graduated from the University of Oregon in Eugene so Portland might be called a homecoming of sorts. Enter Portlandia joke here.

Actually, Gutierrez can always think of Houston when he flips the radio dial and listens to Michael Berry on 1190 KEX. Yep, Berry is on the air in Portland.
