David Nuño leaves abc13 KTRK for TexAgs

David Nuño is leaving the abc13 KTRK sports department and Houston to join the TexAgs website in Bryan - College Station as the site's Director of Broadcast Media.

Adam Winkler joins abc13 KTRK

“I am coming home,” Nuño said on TexAgs. “I have always had a love for the Bryan-College Station area. There are two things in sports that get my blood going: Texas A&M and Real Madrid soccer. There is nothing like A&M sports. I’ve always thought about one day relocating. It’s the perfect area at the perfect time."

TexAgs is an independent website that covers Texas A&M University sports.

Nuño has a connection to Aggieland, he attended TAMU graduating in 1999.  He also was the sports anchor for KXXV Waco, Temple, Killeen which broadcasts to the Brazos Valley through KRHD-Bryan/College Station. 

When Nuño arrived at KTRK in 2012, the native Houstonian was known to sports fans during his time as a radio host on Yahoo! Sports Radio and 1560 The Game KGOW.  In fact, on his channel 13 "No Layups" podcast with Raheel Ramzanali, the former KGOW duo interviewed Chance McClain about their time with the Houston sports station. Double Rods!

Even when not working in broadcasting, Nuño was still all about sports, working for the Harris County Houston Sports Authority and Dallas Mavericks.

Nuño works at KTRK until June 25. His first show on TexAgs Radio will be July 6.  

Now the only problem is that Nuño's wife, Elizabeth, attended the University of Texas. 

“She is an Aggie at heart,” he said on TexAgs. “My kids are all Aggies. They don’t even know about the Longhorns.”

Yeah, but will she ever give the "Horns Down" sign?

2021 has turned out to be a busy year for departures at the normally stable abc13 KTRK.  Now, including Nuño, the following exits have happened or been announced:

- Rehan Aslam leaving KTRK for WABC
- Katherine Whaley leaves abc13 KTRK
- Chelsey Hernandez leaves abc13 KTRK
- Tom Koch retiring from abc13 KTRK

Well now that I think about it, I guess 2020 had some big departures too:

- Deborah Wrigley to leave abc13 KTRK
- Collin Myers exits abc13 KTRK
- Bob Slovak leaves abc13 KTRK
