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!”
