KHOU's Josh Hubbard heading to KGO San Francisco

UPDATE JULY 08, 2019
Chris Henao joins KHOU 11 as assistant news director

KHOU 11 assistant news director Josh Hubbard is leaving Houston for the same job with Disney/ABC Television Group owned KGO San Franciso (sister station to KTRK abc13).

"Happy but also sad news," Hubbard tweeted. "I’m leaving ⁦@KHOU⁩ in June to join the amazing team in San Francisco ⁦@abc7newsbayarea⁩. We’ve been through so much together in Houston, covering every story imaginable. I’m excited for the future, but sad to say goodbye."

The 2005 Syracuse grad started at channel 11 in September 2015.

Prior to Houston, Hubbard served as an executive producer at KUSA Denver and before that at KCRA Sacramento, CA. He was also a producer for WPTZ Plattsburgh, NY and WSTM Syracuse, NY.

"I’m losing my awesome partner @JhubbsKHOU11 😭," KHOU news director Sally Ramirez tweeted. "He’s headed to San Francisco! @abc7newsbayarea you’re lucky to get him! Now I need a new #2! Josh, can you vouch for me?! #journalismjobs I’ll post a job link soon!"

Keep The Resume Handy. Ramierz's mention of the job post made me think of what 740 KTRH journalists back in the day used to say about what their station call letters really meant! That acronym probably still works today for any station. Be ready for when your dream TV job opens up.
