KPRC 2's Winston Dutchin leaves for Seattle

Friday night I blogged how at the end of the day, the Houston media lost three on-air folks - Fox 26 KRIV's Kristi Powers, KIAH 39's Mia Gradney and 740 KTRH's Joe Gomez.

Well, June 2nd we learn that KPRC 2 weekend sports anchor Winston Dutchin is checking out too.

Dutchin announced the news on Twitter Saturday.

With mixed emotions, my family and I are leaving Houston and moving to Seattle. We are terribly excited to raise our two young boys closer to family, but Houston will always hold a special place in my heart.

This city and it's people welcomed us, and our kids will always be native Texans.

Special thanks to everyone at Local 2, especially @RandyMcIlvoy @adamclanton @Allen_Reid @DarylGeorge. I couldn't have been more blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful and talented people in the sports department.

Thank you, Houston!

According to his bio, Dutchin joined KPRC Local 2 as executive sports producer, reporter and anchor in December 2006. Before that, he spent eight years working at KMIR in Palm Springs, CA as a sports reporter. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
