Current KPRC 2 reporter Syan Rhodes has been promoted to weekend anchor the NBC affiliate's senior executive producer Rick McFarland tells

"I'm excited and very thankful for the opportunity," Rhodes told

That seat next to Phillip Mena has been vacant since Irika Sargent moved on to the main anchor gig at sunny WFOR Miami (and a recent guest hosting spot on CBS' The Talk).

Rhodes left her anchor gig at WESH 2 News on CW18 in Orlando for Houston's channel 2 last summer.

Before Orlando, Rhodes spent two years as weekend anchor at WMC Memphis, Tenn., and three years as a reporter and weekend morning anchor at WBIR Knoxville, Tenn. The Emmy award winning journalist also worked as an investigative reporter and weekend anchor at KETK Tyler.

Rhodes is a native Houstonian who told me in May how glad she is to be back home.


  1. She's been anchoring for the last few weeks, I'm glad it's official now. She's very likable.

  2. She's wonderful! True veteran and a real pro!

  3. Good move KPRC,

  4. For once, KPRC-TV got this one right.

  5. The way Reyna keeps destroying the English language when she fills in at lunch during the week, someone should fire her greasy face, send her to English 101 and Reading 101, and place Syan in the chair instead.
