KTRK 13 reporter Gene Apodaca calls it quits

The news hit the Houston TV community last week right before Thanksgiving. KTRK 13 reporter Gene Apodaca reportedly quit the ABC station.

I contacted Apodaca the day it happened but he said he wasn't allowed to give a comment to the mikemcguff.com blog.

Tuesday of this week, I'm told his photo and bio were taken down from the Channel 13 website.

According to KTRK, Apodaca came to work for the Houston station in October 2004. Prior to KTRK, Apodaca worked as a reporter in Miami. Before that he did stints at WPTV in West Palm Beach, KIII in Corpus Christi and KOSA in Midland/Odessa. He's one of those guys who is not from Texas, but apparently got here as soon as he could.

Keep checking back on this blog to see what Apodaca is up to next.
