Anthony Antoine joins FOX 26 Houston as evening anchor, taking over Jonathan Martin who left last week. 

"It’s go time, brother," Martin tweeted.  "Excited for you and I know #Houston will embrace you just as they did me!"

The station tells me effective July 2023, Antoine will join the evening news team of Rashi Vats, Caroline Collins, and meteorologist Remeisha Shade.

"Since migrating to the United States from Trinidad and Tobago, I've always chased my version of the American dream," Antoine said in a statement. "Ascending to this position, in such an amazing and diverse city feels like a dream come true. For Houstonians, I hope to be a calming and reassuring voice during difficult times, and when appropriate, I look forward to laughing and enjoying the positive stories in this great community."

"Anthony will be a perfect addition to the FOX 26 team as he shares our commitment to journalistic integrity and cares deeply about the communities he serves," FOX 26 KRIV Vice President and News Director Susan Schiller added.

Antoine comes from early morning news anchor duties for WWBT 12 Richmond, VA and then later mornings for WRLH 35.

Antoine holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Telecommunications from Bowling Green State University.
