KGUN (Tucson) Reporter Marcelino Benito is joining KHOU 11 as a general assignments reporter.

"I will definitely miss KGUN 9 and Tucson," Benito told mikemcguff.com. "I've made lifelong friends here and got a chance to tell amazing stories in Arizona. It all helped me get ready to take this next step. Tucson will always be a very special place for me."

It's  a homecoming for Benito since he is originally from Houston.

"There's really no place like home and getting to report in my hometown is a dream come true," Benito told McGuff. "Can't wait to get back to Houston to get started!"

Before KGUN, Benito worked as a weekend anchor/reporter for Fox 11 KMSB in Tucson and a reporter at WLNS in Lansing, Michigan. 

He starts mid February
