Allison Gargaro joining FOX 26 Houston

Allison Gargaro, the FOX 35 Orlando WOFL morning meteorologist/traffic anchor, is joining FOX 26 Houston KRIV.

"I am very excited to join the team of talented meteorologists and journalists at FOX 26," Gargaro told  "Coming from Orlando, I am no stranger to the tropics. Over the last two years I have covered hurricanes Ian, Nicole and Idalia. My husband grew up in Houston and we are looking forward to being close to family and friends."

"Allison’s significant experience forecasting severe and tropical weather makes her a natural choice to join Houston’s Gulf Coast Weather Authority," Vice President of Content Creation and Distribution Aaron Fernandez-Wische added.  "She brings energy, authenticity and deep knowledge of the dynamics that shape Houston’s unpredictable weather."

Gargaro takes over the weather position left open when Lena Arango left channel 26.

Gargaro joined FOX 35 Orlando in May 2020, first as a weekend meteorologist, then she moved to "Good Day Orlando" where she was also a traffic anchor. 

The Arizona State University - Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication grad started her professional TV career with KERO 23 Bakersfield, California as a multimedia journalist in 2017, quickly moving to evening meteorologist.

She interned with CBS This Morning, Gannett and what was then Clear Channel. 

(UPDATE: This post has been updated with confirmation that meteorologist Allison Gargaro is joining FOX 26 Houston KRIV from FOX 35 Orlando WOFL.)
