OK, lots of readers have been saying it, and I'm joining in, this Houston TV reporter revolving door thing is getting insane. Even I can't keep up (no wonder I'm the only one left covering Houston TV moves).

In the last few days, Jake Reiner joined KPRC 2 and we learned he is of Hollywood royalty, Marla Carter joined KTRK abc13, then Melissa Correa joined KHOU 11 and today we have another one.

 Whew...let me sit down and catch my breath...OK...I'm ready to go again.

Now, Stephanie Whitfield has joined KHOU 11 as a reporter, but there is a little more about her we need to look into. 

Her last job was at Fox 8 covering the Piedmont Triad around High Point, NC where she had been since December 2013. But she wasn't Stephanie Whitfield, she was Stephanie Ando.

Before North Carolina, Stephanie was at KBTX in College Station (hello to all of my channel 3 readers!).

Houston is a homecoming for Stephanie Whitfield-Ando who worked at KHOU as an assignments desk editor years ago.

The University of Southern California grad interned at CNBC and E! News.

And speaking of revolving doors, these new KHOU 11 reporters are walking into a new news director situation since Philip Bruce announced he was out the door.

(thanks Taylor!)


  1. It's not the first time people changed names...
    Remember a few years ago when Idolina Peralez was Idolina Walker at her prior jobs, but good ol' tabloid LPRC had her go by Idolina Peralez to act like they are a leading source for the hispanic demographic?
    And I've heard for years (unconfirmed) that Dom Sachse's real last name is Sanchez, and she went the other way as she began branding herself.

  2. so if Trumps mom was scottish, then isn't Trump an Anchor Baby?
