Jennifer Reyna joins KHOU 11

Jennifer Reyna KHOU

Jennifer Reyna is returning to television at KHOU 11 mornings bringing 15 years of Houston traffic experience.

Reyna joins the channel 11 morning show with Chita Craft, Stephanie Simmons and Kimberly Davis on November 1st.  Not mentioned in the official press release is the name "#HTownRush," so maybe that will change too.

“I am pleased to join KHOU 11 and do my part to engage and inform my fellow Houstonians," Reyna said in the press release.   "I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with the team and they are talented, dedicated and fun. I’m sure our viewers will appreciate the time they spend with us every morning.”

Reyna leaves KPRC 2 in 2019

I thought all along that Reyna would most likely end up at channel 11. Much has changed in the Houston morning television ratings world since Reyna departed KPRC 2 in October 2019.  It will be interesting to see what happens from this point.

Since leaving KPRC two years ago, Reyna has pretty consistently stayed in the top 5 of my most popular posts as clicked on by readers. 

"We are excited to welcome Jennifer Reyna to the KHOU 11 team and her return to morning television,” added Robert Springer, General Manager KHOU 11. “In addition to her extensive knowledge and understanding of Houston’s traffic, Jennifer cares deeply about the Houston community and it comes through in every interaction you have with her.  

"As we seek to better serve the people of Houston and help them get out the door in morning, they can rest assured Jennifer Reyna is on the case, working closely with Chita Craft, Kimberly Davis and Stephanie Simmons.”

The Houston native starts in broadcasting at 101 KLOL

Reyna started in the broadcasting business in 2003 at the legendary Rock 101 KLOL while appearing on the Outlaw Dave show.

She moved to Los Angeles after that working for ABC 7 KABC behind the scenes on shows Eye on LA and Vista LA.

Returning to Houston, in 2006, Reyna joined KPRC 2 as the morning traffic anchor.  She later added traffic duties at 89.3 KSBJ in addition to her TV work.

In 2011, Reyna also started to anchor KPRC 2 newscasts in addition to her traffic role. 

Reyna, who was born and raised in Houston, is a graduate of the University of Houston.  She supports non-profits like the Lone Survivor Foundation, Houston Association of Hispanic Media and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. 

“Houston’s growing traffic issues are top of mind with viewers,” said KHOU 11 news director Elizabeth Roldan. “Jennifer’s knowledge will help our audience in their everyday life. That’s standing for Houston.”
