Ted Oberg Leaving KTRK in Houston for WRC in Washington, D.C.

By Kevin Eck 

Ted Oberg is joining Washington, D.C. NBC owned station WRC as a reporter in December.

Oberg will work on the News4 I-Team. He recently announced he is leaving Houston ABC owned station KTRK where he’s worked since 2001.

“I love the team at ABC13 Houston and I am leaving with nothing but great memories,” he wrote on Facebook. “Ultimately my family and I felt a pull to get back to the East Coast and closer to our families. I love being an investigative reporter and will continue to do that in a new city starting in December. If they show me even half the hospitality you did, I will be a very lucky guy.”


Before KTRK, he spent nearly six years in Virginia, first at WSLS in Roanoke then at WAVY in Norfolk.

In a memo obtained by TVSpy, WRC news director Mike Goldrick told staffers Oberg is a self-described FOIA addict and “loves digging into data, and has a gift for telling the stories of the people behind the numbers he uncovers. In fact, Ted feels he has the greatest job in local news anywhere.”
