After Phillip Mena left for the big leagues at ABC News, KPRC 2 is hiring Jonathan Martinez as its new weekend co-anchor alongside Syan Rhodes.

"Jonathan is a hometown guy," said KPRC news director Rhonda LaVelle in an email to mikemcguff.com. "He’s originally from Galveston and his family all still lives in the Houston area."

Currently, Martinez is the 5, 6 and 10pm anchor for KNWA Northwest Arkansas News.

Previously, he worked at KTRV-TV, Boise, ID as a morning news anchor, KLAS-TV, Las Vegas as a fill-in anchor/general assignment reporter, KABB-TV, San Antonio as a general assignment reporter and KBMT-TV, Beaumont as a morning anchor/general assignment reporter.

The award winning journalist is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University.

Martinez will start at channel 2 in August.

Yeah, I know, two posts in two days. Crazy. I don't know how many more there will be though. The KLOL documentary is on a roll now!

  2. They should put him on in the mornings and get rid of the troglodyte who fake laughs all the time.

    1. It's been great watching Andy in the mornings this week as opposed to the wanna be Conflenti. Between Owen, Jen, Reuben and Davis, I'm puking in my mouth most mornings. Great job Andy. (Rachel...meh.)

  3. So Sachse turned what, 67 yesterday, and now Grandpa Nick's firm is promoting a story on a willing Chron.com about it to keep her undeserved ego at its usual over inflated level? Yet the commenters there overwhelmingly express their disgust for her. Hilarious!!
    You gotta post about it McGuff. It'll attract lots of clicks, but most negative I suspect.
