Cathy Hernandez and Brittany Jeffers new KPRC 2 weekend morning anchors?

KPRC 2 Houston weekend morning newscast viewers saw Cathy Hernandez and Brittany Jeffers behind the news desk Sunday, and from what understands, this is the new permanent 2023 "KPRC 2 News Today" weekend morning anchor team along with longtime meteorologist Khambrel Marshall.

Hernandez and Jeffers apparently are not just fill-in anchoring as they have been off and on (with a mix of other KPRC talent), after Sofia Ojeda left the newscast last summer.

No word on which newscast Sabirah Rayford, who was hired to anchor the KPRC 2 News Today weekend morning news in 2021, will anchor from this point on.  Either way, she will still be a reporter during the week based on her normal schedule.

Hernandez joined KPRC as a temporary reporter from KDVR and KWGN Denver in 2015.  

The time I interviewed Cathy Hernandez's mother!

The Houston native was made a full-time reporter in 2016. The University of Houston grad got her TV start as channel 2 associate producer, later moving on to KTSM 9 News and CBS4 Local KDBC El Paso. 

A former Houston Texans cheerleader, Hernandez recently returned to her NFL cheerleading duties for an alumni performance. She recently gave birth to her second daughter.  

Jeffers joined KPRC as a reporter in 2018 from CBS 11 KTVT Dallas - Fort Worth (now known as CBS News Texas as of February 2023). 

A finalist in the Miss America competition as Miss Nebraska, Jeffers previously worked for FOX23 KOKI-Tulsa, OK and KLKN Channel 8 in Lincoln, NE.  

Jeffers gave birth to her second child, a baby son, in 2021.
