After securing a new weekend anchor last October, KPRC 2 now has to fill the seat next to it.

Weekend anchor Phillip Mena is jumping to the big time at ABC News as a correspondent reports Deadline Hollywood.

"Phillip is a gifted storyteller and Emmy-nominated reporter with experience producing, writing, shooting and editing," wrote ABC News President James Goldston in a memo.

Mena put his three years in at KPRC after starting in the TV biz in his hometown of El Paso. Marty Robbins would be proud. Out west he anchored for KTSM, KDBC and KVEO in the Rio Grande Valley area.

He attended the University of Texas at El Paso and Arizona State University.

Mena starts in the Big Apple May 4th.
