Wendy Corona leaves WFAA, KPRC producer to WMAQ EP and more

It's time to see where TV folks in Houston and around Texas are getting new jobs!

Wendy Corona jets from WFAA to WSB

TVSpy reports that former KPRC anchor and WFAA freelancer, Wendy Corona, is moving to WSB as a weekend anchor. I hear she starts at the Atlanta station Monday the 28th. The site also reports meteorologist Mark Monstrola heads to KXAN Austin from WFMJ Youngstown, Ohio.

KPRC producer quits job, lives in trailer and now works at NBC 5 WMAQ

Lots of you found my KPRC producer quits job, lives in trailer post very inspirational and shared it around the web. Thank you. But we knew the money would run out sometime.

I had emailed former former KPRC producer and 1969 Shasta Travel Trailer driver, Tracy Hatfield, months ago but never heard back. So after forgetting about the story, I remembered it and wrote the post. After it was on the blog, Hatfield informed me she just got hired at NBC 5 WMAQ as the morning executive producer (called day part managers there). She joins fellow ex-KPRCer Daniella Guzman at the station.

KTRK staff new gigs

Former KTRK 13 and KHOU 11 lighting director Bruce Aleksander announced a new gig with The City of Houston's communication wing, HTV.

Kayla Ayres
Speaking of KTRK, former abc13 intern Kayla Ayres joins KRQE NEWS 13/KASA FOX 2 Albuquerque, New Mexico as a multimedia reporter/anchor. She joins from WBOC in Dover, Delaware where she had been for two years.

According to her LinkedIn account, Ayres interned with KTRK's creative services department in 2008. She then returned to the ABC O&O to intern in the news department in 2009. That was followed by internships at Boston's WHDH and the U.S. Department of State in Istanbul, Turkey.

Fox News to KTVT

Rick Gevers reports that Dallas-based Fox News Channel producer Maggie Kerkman is joining CBS 11 KTVT as the executive producer of special projects.

As psychic as people think I am - I do not always know when people move jobs in Houston and Texas media. So you have to let me know.
