Mayra Moreno is new abc13 KTRK weekend morning anchor

Mayra Moreno to anchor new 3pm newscast on abc13 KTRK

Mayra Moreno replaces longtime anchor Elissa Rivas on KTRK abc13 weekend mornings

Mayra Moreno
Waterlogged KTRK abc13 viewers tuned in Halloween morning to find a TV trick or treat - a surprise new anchor.

That's right, new face Mayra Moreno, who I first blogged about last August, has come back home from KENS 5 San Antonio and made her official channel 13 weekend morning anchor chair debut.

Previously Moreno was an MMJ at KIAH 39 before NewsFix.

Apparently the bad street flooding played a trick on co-anchor Chauncy Glover and stalled his car, so Moreno started the Saturday morning broadcast by herself.

Elissa Rivas
It was rumored that KTRK was looking for a new weekend morning anchor and Moreno would be that person when hired.

So now we know the truth.

That means longtime weekend morning anchor Elissa Rivas will not wake up viewers anymore on the weekend as she has been doing since 2003 (if I remember that start date correctly).

Apparently Rivas will be a reporter from now on as I have not heard if she will move on to anchor another show.

Since I posted this, I was reminded that Elissa Rivas has been filling for the expectant Rebecca Spera on afternoon traffic.
