Jacob Rascon Leaves NBC News for NBC Affiliate

By Chris Ariens 

TVSpy reports NBC News correspondent Jacob Rascon is leaving the network and joining NBC affiliate KPRC in Houston.

Rascon has been with NBC News since 2014, joining from KNBC in Los Angeles. Rascon will be working in his hometown, and, in a sense, competing with his father Art Rascon who is an anchor at Houston’s ABC affiliate KTRK.

A return to local news reporting and anchoring will be much easier on Rascon’s family, than being a network news correspondent which requires constant travel. Rascon and his wife have four children under age 5.
