In February 2014, Arenas became the first KHOU reporter to go straight to CBS News as a national correspondent since Dan Rather according to an internal KHOU memo.
No word on why Arenas split the CBS News Miami correspondent gig, but TVNewser reports the network is looking for a replacement.
In other former Houston talent news, former KPRC 2 weekend anchor Irika Sargent has been named co-anchor of the CBS 2 Chicago WBBM weekday evening news. And get this, she's joining former KPRC 2 anchor Rob Johnson behind the Windy City anchor desk at 5, 6 and 10 p.m.
So my thinking is, if you are a KPRC weekend anchor, then you can write your ticket to the big time!
Think about this...former KPRC 2 weekend anchor Daniella Guzman is now the NBC4 KNBC Los Angeles morning anchor and former KPRC 2 anchor weekend anchor Phillip Mena is with ABC News.
So anyone willing to bet on where current KPRC 2 weekend anchors Syan Rhodes and Jonathan Martinez will be in a few years?
Sargent, who is a former attorney, starts in Chicago, October 19.
