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.
