Just letting you know that today is my last day at Fox26. I’ve enjoyed 26 great years at the station but it’s time to relax a bit, enjoy more time with my family, and look for new adventures down the road.
It’s been a great pleasure and privilege to tell the stories I have told over the years. Thank you to all for allowing me to share your information, concerns, and experiences with the people in the Houston area and beyond!
I wish all the best to the wonderful friends I’ve met in my journey. I’m sure we will find ways to stay in touch.

Watkins started her career at KFDA in Amarillo, Texas. She joined KRIV in 1990 as a producer and weekend anchor.
