Nakia Cooper joins CW39 NewsFix from KPRC 2

CW 39 KIAH NewsFix gets Click2Houston manager Nakia Cooper as newly created Digital Executive Producer and Content Manager

KPRC 2 senior web editor Nakia Cooper is heading up the Southwest Freeway and exiting Westpark to join KIAH CW 39's NewsFix as Digital Executive Producer and Content Manager.

"I started at KHOU as an intern at Great Day Houston, fought my way up to Senior Producer of Digital Media at KHOU.com and learned from the best," Cooper told mikemcguff.com. "I took that knowledge to the Click2Houston team at KPRC and was instrumental in helping to increase numbers across the digital board as Senior Web Editor.

"Now, I'm off to 'do my own thing' by managing the CW39.com team."

As someone who knows a little about TV stations and the digital world, let me tell you, 39's online presence will be a site to watch from now on under the guidance of Cooper. Not only that, but there is a bigger historical perspective with Cooper's new job.

"To my knowledge, I am the first African American woman to manage a Web Department at a Houston television news station and I'm very proud," Cooper added. "Not only that, I'm ready."

Outside of her TV work, Cooper also publishes NewsWithAttitude.com.
