When KPRC 2 morning anchor Lauren Freeman returned from maternity leave, but started anchoring the 4pm news show, I was a little confused. Turns out I was not the only one. Now her new show is permanent for Freeman as she announced on Facebook yesterday:

I have some exciting news to announce. Starting in December, I'll be anchoring the 4 PM, the midday news and continuing my special assignment reporting. Thank you for all the sweet messages you've sent me about when I'll be returning to mornings. It's so nice to be missed, I'm looking forward to the new hours and no 2:30 AM alarm! This will be an easier schedule to juggle my 4 boys… Yes I include my husband in that!

Lauren will co-anchor with Keith Garvin who has been on that show since 2012.

We can assume that Rachel McNeill, the station's former 4pm anchor, is now the new morning anchor with Owen Conflenti since she has been filling in during November sweeps.

The Houston Chronicle confirms that Rachel McNeill is the new morning show anchor. It also reports that KPRC won November 2013 sweeps run in the morning news.
