Reporter Josh Chapin to leave KHOU 11 for unknown North Carolina gig

KHOU 11 reporter Josh Chapin announced last night on social media that he is outta here.

"A tough, bittersweet night for me at #KHOU11," Chapin wrote on Twitter. "It was my last live shot for this amazing TV station. I'm headed on to a new opportunity next month in North Carolina. Thank you to everyone who watched me every night. I hope you will follow me on my journey to what's next!"

Chapin arrived at channel 11 almost to the day in 2015 from NBC Connecticut WVIT. Prior to that, he worked at News 12 The Bronx and News 12 Brooklyn as an anchor/reporter.

He is a 2009 graduate of Duke University where he earned a degree in classical languages and broadcast journalism.

"In my time here since 2015, I’ve seen and covered some history in Houston," he added on his Facebook page. "Three floods, a hurricane, snow and ice, a Super Bowl, a Final Four and a World Series victory. I’m grateful to all of you that welcomed me into your homes each and every night at 10pm. To all of you who I have met, thank you for letting me tell your stories—for laughing and crying with me; for sharing moments with me at your best and worst times. This city has a very special place in my heart and I will never forget the friends and relationships I’ve forged here."

Clearly Chapin cannot say where in North Carolina his next job is at this point, so stay tuned.

(Thanks Taylor!)
