After Six Years In LA, Morning Meteorologist Heads Back to Houston

By Kevin Eck 

Meteorologist Anthony Yanez is returning to Houston NBC affiliate KPRC after working at KNBC in Los Angeles for more than six years.

Yanez was the morning meteorologist on KPRC 2 for more than 11 years before leaving in 2014. He will officially return to KPRC on Sept. 1.

“I have always loved KPRC 2 and Houston,” said Yanez. “The people in this community are one of a kind, and I can’t wait to get home.”


The station says he “was a popular member of the KPRC 2 News morning team” while working with morning anchor Owen Conflenti.

“The ‘bromance’ of Anthony Yanez & Owen Conflenti has become something of a legend in Houston morning TV,” said KPRC vice president and general manager Jerry Martin. “We are excited to have Anthony back on KPRC 2 News Today, where he belongs!”
