Rebecca Spera becomes abc13 KTRK afternoon traffic anchor

Rebecca Spera stays with KTRK abc13 and becomes afternoon traffic anchor

KTRK abc13 has named Rebecca Spera its new afternoon traffic anchor.

The Live Well Network was supposed to sign-off in January, but still is plugging along with re-runs. With the network's current state of limbo, TV folks wondered what the former Houston-based Mirror/Mirror host Spera would do next.

As of late, Spera has been working in the KTRK news department as a special projects reporter. However, after the retirement of Don Nelson, we get this new development.

Someone wrote in my comments section that Spera's bio was changed in late February (last week) to say that in March, she became the abc13 traffic anchor.

KTRK bios must be like a look into the future. And in all fairness, Spera has worked for a show titled Mirror/Mirror, so with a little Disney magic (the owner of KTRK and Live Well) I can ask, "Mirror/Mirror on the wall, who is the most afternoon traffic anchor of them all?"

You might remember that Spera earned her stripes in traffic many moons ago filling in for the before mentioned Nelson while he was out for shoulder surgery.

I wouldn't expect Spera to start on afternoons anytime soon, because I hear she has her own upcoming wedding and honeymoon to attend first!

As far as Nelson's actual replacement, everyone has guessed that Katherine Whaley is that person.

By the way, I'm still waiting for an answer from that mirror. Someone bring me pixie dust, stat!
