KPRC 2's new weekend anchor?

Yesterday I blogged about new KPRC 2 hire Irika Sargent. You know, the reporter who starts soon in Houston with a legal degree. Well, a commenter brought to my attention that Sargent's agent, Mort Meisner Associates, posts on his site that Sargent is not just a future reporter, but also a weekend evening anchor too:

IRIKA SARGENT makes the move as WEEKEND EVENING ANCHOR/WEEKDAY REPORTER to POST NEWSWEEK AND NBC AFFILIATE KPRC IN HOUSTON. IRIKA comes to Houston by way of NBC Affiliate WPMI in MOBILE. IRIKA is a graduate of the University of Missouri and the Cornell Law School.

That was not on the info I first saw, but since Meisner handled the deal, I'm sure he would know. So looks like Sargent will be joining current anchor Daniella Guzmán at the news desk. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
