Tonight: Meet The New KPRC Anchor Babies
September 14, 2011

Remember when FIVE KPRC Anchor/Reporters were pregnant at the same time?

After giving  birth and going on maternity leave, the anchors and ther babies got  together recently at Channel 2 to do a followup to the story about their pregnancies.  I had just a few minutes to  snap some candid photos, but you can tune in tonight to watch anchor Owen Conflenti’s story.


To refresh your memory the new mommies are Morning Anchor Lauren Freeman, 4 o’clock Anchor Rachel McNeill, Weekend Anchor Daniella Guzman, Weekend Morning Anchor Courtney Zavala and Investigative Reporter/Fill-In Anchor Amy Davis.

Daniella had a precious baby girl and the rest of the team had boys.

KPRC Local 2 Loves Anchor Babies
January 14, 2011

You can call it a pregnancy outbreak or a baby epidemic.   Channel 2 will soon need to build our very own nursery in the middle of the newsroom.

Not really – But several  KPRC Local 2 news anchors/reporters are pregnant and their babies are due within weeks of  each other.

Let’s start with KPRC Local 2  Morning Anchor Lauren Freeman. She’s 8 months pregnant with her second child.  Lauren and husband Dr. Forrest Roth are also the  proud parents of  2-year-old Rhodes.

 Local 2 News at 4 Anchor Rachel McNeill  is also pregnant with her second baby.  She and husband Dr. Wayne  Franklin are going to have a little brother or sister for two-year old Lionel.  

Weekend Anchor/Reporter Daniella Guzman and her husband Hector are pregnant with their first baby.  Their baby is due in June.

Weekend Morning Anchor Courtney Zavala and her husband Orlando are expecting their second boy.  They are already the proud parents of 2-year-old Connor.

Meanwhile Anchor/Investigative Consumer Reporter Amy Davis is pregnant with a baby boy due in March.   This is the first child for Amy and husband, KPRC Local 2 Anchor/Wheel of  Justice Reporter Joel Eisenbaum. 

Congratulations to all the mommies and daddies to be!     I’ll post pictures when all the new anchor babies make their arrival.

Get Ready For I-Fest 2010
April 6, 2010

It’s almost that time of the year again – when we get to experience the culture of  another country in the middle of  downtown Houston. 

The 40th Annual International Festival begins on April 17, 2010, and this year I-Fest will highlight the islands of  the Carribean.

You can learn more about all of the food, music, and entertainment planned for the two weekends of  I-Fest by visiting the official website:

In the meantime, make plans to watch KPRC Local 2 to learn more about the unique places that are being featured during the festival.

KPC Anchor Rachel McNeill, Photographer Tyrina Gleinser and Producer Tracy Hatfield travelled to Jamaica, Aruba, Trinidad and Tobago.

The crew, pictured here relaxing in Jamaica,  will introduce you to the people, beaches and some of the exotic places to visit.

The show will air on KPRC Local 2 (Channel 12 on Comcast)  at 6:30 p.m.Saturday, April 10th, and again at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 11.

I hope to see everybody during I-Fest!
