"KPRC 2 News Today at 10am" and 3pm news debut in September 2023

"KPRC 2 News Today at 10am" debuts Monday, September 11, 2023 as well as KPRC 2 News at 3pm.  

I found out that "Today With Hoda & Jenna" will be moved to 11am where "KPRC 2 News Midday "followed by a repeat of "Entertainment Tonight" at 11:30am currently air. 

UPDATE 8-30-2023
KPRC 2 is also adding a half-hour 3pm newscast starting 9-11-2023 replacing "Dr. Phil."  The above mentioned "Entertainment Tonight" rerun will air at 3:30pm now. The channel 2 Houston 3pm newscast will be anchored by Andy Cerota, Lisa Hernandez and meteorologist Justin Stapleton. 

For those keeping score, this is one of those newscast additions I hinted about back in July.

Morning anchors Owen Conflenti and Sofia Ojeda will be behind the anchor desk, and the above video is of the AM duo rehearsing for the new newscast.

"The 10am will not be all news," Ojeda posted.  "There will be lighthearted stories and lots of moments KPRC2 Owen Conflenti and I will share with y’all on daily topics and what everyone is talking about." 

Conflenti says in the above video that meteorologist Justin Stapleton will contribute his beer segment to the newscast.

This is an actual over-the-air TV newscast addition...not a new streaming show for KPRC 2+.

As for streaming, Conflenti and Ojeda are apparently handing their 7am KPRC2+ show over to medical reporter Haley Hernandez and consumer reporter Amy Davis. 

Just last week, "KPRC2+ Now" at 9 debuted with Zach Lashway and Hernandez.

The streaming-only KPRC 2+ debuted in April of 2022.

KPRC 2 dumped its 4:30am newscast in January of 2023.
