Steve Campion joins KTRK from WBBH

Steve Campion joins KTRK abc13 as first MMJ from WBBH Fort Myers

Steve Campion joins abc13 KTRK from NBC2/ABC7 WBBH-WZVN Fort Myers where he has worked for almost three years.


 Forgive me for not posting this news last week when he started, but it got lost in the shuffle with Corey Foley leaving The Bull 100.3 KILT, Casey Curry returning to KTRK abc13 and Katie McCall joining FOX 26.

What makes Campion's hiring so interesting is that he is KTRK's first plunge into the MMJ, one-man band, backpack journalist (whatever your name for it insert here) craze. KTRK is the last Houston station to embrace the inevitable future in this area.

Just in case you don't know what an MMJ or multi-media journalist does, Campion's bio will fill you in, "He prides himself on covering all aspects of a story from shooting, to writing, and editing the pieces."

At least he goes into it with a positive attitude.

Before WBBH, Campion worked as an MMJ for WCJB/TV20 News in Gainesville, FL for a little more than a year. He interned at WTVJ NBC Miami in 2009.

The South Florida native is a graduate of the University of Florida in Gainesville. (See Campion's Florida work embedded below)

By the way, who else at KTRK has previously worked in Fort Myers? That's right...reporter Pooja Lodhia. Former KTRK reporter Patrick Nolan is a Fort Myers anchor at WFTX.

Speaking of KTRK, I'm getting lots of emails in about new weekend anchor Natasha Barrett. I believe this past weekend was her first time for her to be on her permanent shift.  She started out the week before Easter anchoring the 11am news during the week.
