Todd Duplantis, who was a reporter at Houston’s KRIV for 9 years before leaving in 2006, has returned to television — this time at rival station KHOU.

Duplantis has been the morning traffic reporter on KHOU, the CBS affiliate in Houston, since August 30. He is filling in for Katherine Whaley. “It’s great to be back on the air in Houston and I’m really enjoying it,” Duplantis told Houston media blogger Mike McGuff.

Since his departure from KRIV in 2006, Duplantis has worked in public relations in the Houston area. He also worked as an assignment editor for KHOU from October 2009 to April 2010.
