KPRC meteorologist Khambrel Marshall announced he will retire from the Houston NBC affiliate after nearly 48 years in the industry.
Marshall joined KPRC in 1999.
“For almost 48 years, I have been blessed to work in this amazing industry that has put me in positions of responsibility as sports director, news anchor, executive producer, and meteorologist in six stations in five states,” said Marshall. “36 of those years have been with Post-Newsweek/Graham Media stations, and it has been an honor to work with and for the best station group in the country. It’s simply time to rest.”
“Not many people can boast that they’ve spent a lifetime in service to their community. Then again, there’s no one quite like Khambrel Marshall. He’s an original,” said KPRC general manager Phil Lane. “During election season, he’s our political specialist, deftly moving from issue to issue and candidate to candidate, helping to break down political issues to ensure viewers are prepared and educated about upcoming elections. As a Meteorologist, he’s helped people prepare for severe weather and keep their families safe. He’s been a voice of calm during times of adversity.”
He is also the host of Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall, where he invites elected officials and community leaders to talk about major political topics that directly impact the area.
“I got into journalism so I could make a difference in the lives of the people in my community,” said Marshall. “My advice to the next generation of journalists? ALWAYS strive for the truth and both sides of the story and NEVER offer an opinion. No one cares – they want the truth from you so that they can form their own opinions.”
Marshall’s last day will be Wednesday, December 13.
