Brittany Jeffers joins KPRC 2

KTVT CBS 11 DFW reporter Brittany Jeffers joins KPRC 2


Multiple sources have confirmed to mikemcguff.com that KTVT CBS11 Dallas-Fort Worth reporter Brittany Jeffers is starting at KPRC 2 today as a reporter.

Jeffers has been quiet on exactly which station she was headed to after recently leaving the DFW CBS owned station in March.

All we knew was she moved to the best city in Texas. For those in the DFW Metroplex, that is Houston (but to all my readers up I-45, I love you all and I can't wait to ride the bullet train to visit you. Anyone up for lunch at Bread Winners or Sonny Bryan's?).

Jeffers did not respond to my request for more info.

"I have joined the KPRC team and am ecstatic to get to work with this dedicated group of journalists," Jeffers told mikemcguff.com after this post was originally published. "I adore Texas but am excited to now be alongside my fiancĂ© and friends and call Houston ‘home’."

It reminded me of the old days...you know before social media.

Back in the time when people actually talked to each other, us media bloggers couldn't just sit back and watch social media feeds from the comfort of our mother's basements (OK, granted basements are kinda non-existent in Texas, but you know the cliche) to find out about TV talent job moves.

And where did people troll before Twitter and Facebook? Message boards?

These days, TV goodbye posts are written faster than a company like Cambridge Analytica can say, "I know you better than you know yourself."

Even at the time of this writing, Jeffers has remained mum on social media about her new channel 2 Houston gig.

Jeffers had been with KTVT since 2016 as a reporter/fill-in anchor.

Here is a look at her other TeeVee news career moves:

2011-2016 weekend anchor/reporter
FOX23 KOKI-Tulsa, OK

2010-2011 morning anchor
KLKN Channel 8 in Lincoln, NE

2008-2010 Reporter
KLKN Channel 8 in Lincoln, NE

2009-2010 Miss Nebraska
Miss America Organization

Just like FOX 26 KRIV anchor Kaitlin Monte, Jeffers was a finalist in the Miss America competition. She represented the Cornhusker State as Miss Nebraska 2009 according to her KTVT bio.

The two-time regional Emmy award winner is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in broadcast journalism.
