Ruben Galvan is heading back to California. The KPRC 2 morning feature reporter made the announcement on Facebook:

Thank YOU Houston!
To all of my friends, family, colleagues, and VIEWERS... I have decided to move back to California after an amazing ride here at KPRC2.
It has been a JOY being an Entertainment Reporter in my hometown for the past 2 1/2 years and I couldn't Thank You enough.
I will dearly miss my FAVORITE morning team and the best photographer in the world, Cesar Martinez.
This dream would have never come true without my faith in God and support from a very special group of folks from the very beginning like Jerry Martin (GM), Bill Balleza, and Deborah Collura (Former ND).
Also, thank you Rhonda LaVelle (ND) for embracing my creativity and humor.
I have chosen to pursue the next chapter of my life and take a short break.
My last day at work is March 4th. Until then... COME on BACK!
Love Ruben

Galvan made his mark on the KPRC 2 morning show. After he and anchor Rachel McNeill were added to the show in 2013, the newscast went to number one for a few years. In fact, after Ruben's arrival, other Houston TV stations added more feature oriented reporters to their morning shows.

Before that, Galvan spent 10 years at XETV San Diego 6 News (CW affiliate) as the morning entertainment/feature reporter. He also worked at KXXV Waco and KTVB-Ch.7 in Boise, Idaho.

He is a a graduate of Spring Branch's Northbrook High School and the University of Houston.

Hopefully he will let us know what he's doing next soon.
