Today was the LAST day for Rita Garcia at FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston after 6 years with the Houston FOX affiliate. Plus, Garcia will be going to FOX sister station, FOX 11 KTTV-TV Los Angeles, CA. While there's no word on what she'll be doing, someone found a Google search of video demos that Garcia was doing in early October for KTTV's "Good Day LA" Morning Show (The legendary Steve Edwards is still there from what I hear & for those, who don't remember: the "Good Day Live" TV Show, which was on FOX 26 & other FOX affiliates in the early 2000's). "She's one of the best, hard to see her go, but so happy for her bright future," said Morning Anchor Melissa Wilson. Garcia joined FOX 26 back in December of 2011 from Los Angeles, so it's a return to the City of Angels for her. The then-CBS 2 KCBS-TV Los Angeles freelance reporter joined the FOX 26 family as Weekend Anchor & Reporter. Less than 2 years later, she moved up to the weekday morning newscasts, where she's been ever since until today. The Lone Star State native began her TV News career in Welasco, TX with ABC 5 KRGV-TV. Garcia holds BA Degrees from Texas State University of San Marcos (Mass Communications & Spanish). https://www.facebook.com/RitaGarciaFOX26/ http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/12/rita-garcia-leaving-fox-26-for-fox-11-KTTV-LA.html Post your thoughts on Garcia's departure & her return to the City of Angels.
Folks, take a look at this article from the Houston Chronicle. It appears Rita Garcia will be staying in the weekday morning newscasts for Fox 26, permanently taking over the co-anchor spot leftover from the departure of Natalie Bomke, who left the station to move back to her home state of Illinois, working for Fox affiliate, WFLD-TV Fox 32. Kristine Galvan will assume the weekend evening anchor duties for Fox 26 until a permanent replacement is named. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/tv/article/Rita-Garcia-named-Channel-26-morning-co-anchor-501084.php Fox 26 has recently become a revolving door of talented folks (including some who've been there for almost 30 years) leaving for greener pastures. Ned Hibberd-now in Charlotte, NC Natalie Bomke-now at WFLD-TV, Fox 32 Chicago Jan Jeffcoat-now at WSUA-TV Washington, DC Sibilia Vargas-recently back in her home state of NY State Nancy Zambrano-lasted a few months before heading back to Austin I'm wondering who else is next to leave Fox 26, any takers ?
