KPRC's Camille Williams Hepola is joining fellow television reporter Jeff McShan and leaving the TV biz for the The Harris County District Attorney’s Office.

In a release issued today, the DA's office says that McShan will primarily be the Public Information Officer, while Hepola will handle Public Relations and Outreach.

As I blogged a few weeks ago, McShan is hanging up his reporter's microphone at KHOU 11 for the Harris County life. Camille Williams, who will now go by her married name of Hepola (factoid: If that name seems familiar, Camille is married to Comcast SportsNet Houston's Cory Hepola). Williams and the former TV name, leave KPRC after joining the Post-Newsweek Houston station in January 2013.

Before KHOU, where he has been for decades, McShan was the sports reporter at KTRK abc13. He dumped sports for news at KHOU and has really made a name for himself in breaking scoops ever since. You can read more about McShan here.

Before KPRC, Williams worked at FOX 7 KTBC for about thee years as a General Assignment Reporter. Before that she worked as an anchor/reporter at WETM in Elmira, NY and WJHG in Panama City Beach, Florida. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with a double major in Broadcast Journalism and Psychology. And another Houston link, she has a brother who lives here.

Today is current PIO Sara Marie Kinney's last day with the office. Kinney told me she is returning to Austin and Governor Perry's team.
