Hannah Mackenzie leaves KPRC 2

Hannah Mackenzie has let us know her freelance reporting assignment with KPRC 2 is coming to an end as of July 10.

"Being a Cypress native, it is disappointing KPRC management decided not to offer me a full time contract," Mackenzie told "I’m back on the job hunt now, looking forward to my next chapter. My time here has allowed me to grow and learn as a journalist and who knows, hopefully you’ll see me back on the small screen in Houston in the not-so-distant future! In the mean time, stay safe, healthy and keep up with me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.”

Mackenzie returned to Houston to work at KPRC in January 2020.

The Edward R Murrow award-winning journalist previously worked as an anchor/reporter for WEAR Pensacola, FL.

“It’s been an amazing six months covering breaking news in the city I call home," Mackenzie added. "Explosions, water main breaks, protests, tornadoes and tropical storms...and perhaps the biggest news of my career: a global pandemic. It’s safe to say I’ve covered the gamut in the news world during my time in Houston."

Here are some other stops in Mackenzie's TV news career:

News Anchor/Reporter/Producer
McAllen, Texas
Aug 2013 – Jun 2016

YNN Austin (now Spectrum News Austin)
News Intern
Jan 2013 – May 2013

She is a UT Austin grad with a Bachelors degree in Journalism.
