KHOU 11 hires Andrew Horansky from KVUE Austin

Andrew Horansky to leave KHOU for Cleveland's WKYC

KHOU just hired a new reporter out of Austin's KVUE 24 and Central Texas blogger Bill Church says  Andrew Horansky is one of the Belo station's best ones:

Andrew Horansky’s fiancée has completed medical school at the University of Texas San Antonio and for her residency program in pediatrics has been matched with Children’s Hospital, Houston. The couple will marry June 2.

After two years of living in separate cities, Horansky, 35, wanted to begin married life residing with his new bride. He kept (news director Frank) Volpicella full informed as fiancée Kristin looked at various cities for her residency so that his news director might help with possible broadcasting jobs. It all came together when Houston emerged as the residency location and KVUE’s Belo Broadcasting sister station KHOU-TV had a reporter leave, opening up a spot for Horansky.

“The business is so competitive and just because I worked for Belo and had a solid resume didn’t guarantee me anything,” Horansky said. “I interviewed with KHOU’s news director and won the job, so it all worked out.” READ THE REST

Before KVUE, Horansky worked as a freelance reporter at the NBC Newschannel in Chicago, HD News - Voom Network Television, New England Cable News and WWTV/WWUP, Cadillac, MI.

You can watch a story I found on YouTube that Horansky did a little more than a year ago (embedded above).
