First Marla Carter joined KTRK abc13 and now Melissa Correa joins KHOU 11 from KRGV Rio Grande Valley where she has been a reporter/anchor for the last four years.
This is a return to Houston for Correa who earned her degree from the University of Houston. According to her bio, she wrote for the Daily Cougar and was even a Buggy Beauty during football games.
"I was living in Houston in 2005 when hurricanes Katrina and Rita made landfall," Correa wrote in her KRGV bio. "I watched around-the-clock news coverage of the natural disasters that forever changed many communities. It was that extensive coverage that inspired me to follow my passion and become a reporter. Words are powerful. Some images stay with us forever. A chance at telling life-changing stories was too valuable to pass up."
Before KRGV, Correa worked for WWBT Richmond, Virginia. She started her career in KOSA in Odessa. The Weslaco native interned for the FOX News Channel.
