Lainie Fritz joins KPRC 2

Lainie Fritz joins KPRC 2 as sports reporter/MMJ

KPRC 2 has hired Lainie Fritz as its new sports reporter and multi-media journalist (MMJ) according to an internal station memo obtained by mikemcguff.com.

Fritz most recently worked as the main sports anchor/reporter at WCBD Charleston, South Carolina.

Channel 2 is quite the homecoming for Fritz who interned there in 2012.

Beyond that she attended Sam Houston State University.

I'm quite sure Fritz has grown up loving sports, especially football.

If the last name sounds familiar, it's because Lainie's father is Willie Fritz, the Tulane University head coach.

According to Wikipedia, Fritz was the head football coach at Sam Houston State University from 2010 to 2013. He also coached at Blinn College in the 90s.

  1. Wasn't she a fill-in for Monica Lewinski?

  2. I wonder if this means Simone Eli is leaving soon. It would be cool though to have 2 female sports reporters at the same station.

    1. Simone Eli could be leaving soon. I think the guy she's dating or engaged to lives in Alabama and is a Football coach there. Doubt she'll be here for the long haul.

    2. Looking more & more that Simone Eli is leaving KPRC-TV very soon!

    3. I think she is leaving. She's engaged to a guy in Alabama (who is like 20 years older than her) and for them to get married she has to move there.

  3. She's been in the business for less than 2 years. With her and Simone (who barely has more experience)...what the hell are they doing? This is a top 5 market with major teams, yet this station keeps bringing in people with no experience to work there. Makes ZERO sense.

    Oh wait...beautiful women trumps experience. Guess it all makes sense now.

    1. I agree with you, except for the " beautiful women" part. It's more " women who look good with the right hair and makeup." You would be surprised what many " beautiful" women look like without makeup and other things. It's really hard to get ahead in radio, or TV, if you don't wear tons of it, don't kiss butt and play the game. That's why the media has gotten so bad.

    2. I meant women who look beautiful on TV...whether it's all natural, all makeup, or some combination of the two.

  4. It's the money. People short on experience can't command big salaries. They have to take whatever the station offers and trust me, it ain't much. With only two years experience she's probably making low five figures, at best.

    1. I guarantee you there are plenty of good, hard-working journalists out there with much more experience who would take that money. Some of the hardest working people in the business make the least money...while the faces you see every night do nothing except read what people write for them and make the big bucks.

  5. She actually is better than Simone Eli. Not sure the fascination with Eli but she isn't very good. I lived in S.C and I'm familiar with her work. She will do well here. Her on air delivery is way better than Eli. If Eli were to leave it really wouldnt be a big loss for Ch. 2. Eli really belongs in a smaller market but you have to take a job like Ch. 2 when presented to you.

  6. Another effort by Randy McIlvoy to cover up his incompetence as lead sports guy by hiring people who know less than him, and by hiring chicks who may pay dividends later if liberal ESPN hires the gal.

  7. She's obviously hotter than Simone Eli. Plus, she's just as hot as J Rey, Chita, Scarlett, and Mayra.

    1. None of those last four are remotely hot.

    2. You must be a jealous woman or a gay man (not that there's anything wrong with that last one)

  8. Where's the normal troglodyte who anchors 2 in the morning? I heard something about a shoulder injury...maybe he tore something after patting himself on the back so much (when not choking down his menthols).
