Anthony Antoine will join Houston Fox owned station KRIV as an evening anchor in July.
Antoine will join the evening news team of Rashi Vats, Caroline Collins, and meteorologist Remeisha Shade.
“Anthony will be a perfect addition to the FOX 26 team as he shares our commitment to journalistic integrity and cares deeply about the communities he serves,” said vice president and news director Susan Schiller.
Antoine comes from WWBT and WRLH in Richmond, Virginia. Before that, he spent six years at WCIA in Champaign, Illinois where he started as a camera operator and was promoted to reporter and then anchor.
“Since migrating to the United States from Trinidad and Tobago, I’ve always chased my version of the American dream. Ascending to this position, in such an amazing and diverse city feels like a dream come true,” said Antoine. “For Houstonians, I hope to be a calming and reassuring voice during difficult times, and when appropriate, I look forward to laughing and enjoying the positive stories in this great community.”
