Houston TV viewers are losing Karla Barguiarena for a second time. The abc13 KTRK reporter is leaving the Disney/ABC Television Group after working there since 2013.

She took to Facebook to leave a message for her fans.

"Hi everyone! I have some very bittersweet news to share. Tomorrow will be the last time I'll hold the 13 Eyewitness News microphone. I'm leaving the job and city I love to be with the man I love. You see, since the beginning of the year my husband has been working in New England. He would come home every other weekend. I thought we could do it. But the ride to the airport was getting more difficult every time. So the time has come for us to be a family again. At the end of the month I will pack up the kids and move north. I will miss bringing you the news more than you will ever know. And I'm eternally grateful for your support. Thank you. Gracias! My time at Channel 13 was amazing because of viewers like you."

I had wondered about Barguiarena's future in Houston after her husband, former KHOU 11 news director Keith Connors, got a job earlier this year at WTNH in New Haven, CT.

Before returning to Houston, Barguiarena worked as a media relations expert at Angie's List.

Houston TV news viewers will remember Barguiarena from her reporting work at KHOU 11 in the mid to late 2000's. Before that she worked at Telemundo Houston KTMD for five years.

  2. NOT surprised that this is happening as Ch. 13 is turning into the TV News version of Kentucky: people leaving in droves!

  3. Elita Loresca is most likely to be moved to weekday mornings from weekends and Casey Curry is most likely to leave KTRK 13 at the end of this year

  4. WOW! How sure are you about this development on Casey leaving ? I'm shocked because she's been there since 2006!
