KPRC And The Community

One of the joys of working in TV news is that I have an opportunity to meet fascinating people from our wonderfully diverse Houston area community.

I  also  appreciate  that I work for people who understand the importance of  building relationships and being involved in  events that are important to our viewers.

On Thursday night, KPRC-TV  General Manager Larry Blackerby welcomed dozens of people to the station for our 3rd annual Community Reception.

Elected officials, the leaders of  non-profit and community groups, and other people who are quietly making a difference were invited to meet the station management, reporters and producers.

 It gave  us an opportunity to get to  know each other away from the glare of  bright lights,  news cameras and meetings.

The reception helped  put a face to every luncheon, parade, festival, walk-a-thon, blood and food drive, and other special community events that Channel 2 supports.

Cofield, representatives from Houston Aids Foundation, The Ensemble Theatre, Channel 2 News Director Skip Valet, Senior Producer Kim Davis and a host of  others.
