New HISD press person a San Antonio TV reporter

HISD tells me former San Antonio TV news reporter Leila Walsh will be in the Communication Services department.

HISD has been making a bunch of hires in its press department lately. Here is another one I believe, due to the fact it is being reported a current San Antonio TV reporter is leaving to become a Houston Independent School District writer.

Jeanne Jakle of the San Antonio Express-News writes that WOAI 4 reporter Leila Walsh is leaving that market at the end of this year to come to HISD:

Walsh already has a Houston TV connection. According to Jakle, her boyfriend is KTRK 13 photographer Wes Sewell. I do not know him. He started working there after I left.

According to Walsh's WOAI online bio, she joined the station in July of 2005. Before that she was in Syracuse at WSYR-TV and NewsRadio 570 WSYR. She started TV at WUTR in Utica and is a graduate of Syracuse University. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
