Alex Bozarjian joins abc13 Houston


Alex Bozarjian is joining abc13 KTRK Houston from 7 Action News WXYZ Detroit where she was a reporter.

Here is what Bozarjian tweeted:


"After two years in Detroit I’m back on the move. 


This career is full of heartbreak because you never really feel ready to say goodbye.


I have accepted a reporter position at ABC 13 in Houston.


Thank you for everything, Detroit. I’m excited for the next chapter."


Bozarjian joined WXYZ in August 2021 (FUN FACT: just like KTRK is today, WXYZ was a former ABC owned and operated station in the past and was sold around the same time as Houston's ABC owned 97 Rock KSSR).  BTW, shout out to former WXYZ news director Tom Rosenbaum who I had the honor of working for back in the day. 

It was pointed out by one of my readers that Bozarjian is most likely taking the spot left by Shelly Childers who also came to channel 13 from WXYZ Detroit.  

Now if Bozarjian looks or her name sounds familiar, it's because she was part of several national news story. 

Before Detroit, Bozarjian worked for WSAV News 3 Savannah, Georgia as a multi-media journalist (MMJ)/fill-in anchor/fill-in producer.

As WSAV reported back in December 2019, while Bozarjian was reporting live from an area run, a male runner hit her on her backside as he moved past her location.



Bozarjian talked about the incident on CBS Mornings (embedded below).



The runner pleaded guilty to sexual battery in 2020.

Recently in April of 2023, Bozarjian made more national news on how she handled a viewer's comment.

Before staring her television news career, the University of Central Florida (welcome to the BIG XII), Nicholson School of Communication grad reported from Cuba for the school's Knightly Latino.  The fluent Spanish speaker also interned for WFTV Channel 9 and News 6 WKMG both in Orlando.





(Thanks Shad!)
