LA Reporter Leaves for El Paso Anchor Job


It's a big drop in markets, but a bump up in gigs.

KABC Reporter Robert Holguin is leaving Los Angeles to become prime-time anchor at KFOX in his hometown of El Paso.

Holguin has been at KABC since 2006.

“My time in Los Angeles was exciting, unforgettable and incredibly rewarding,” Robert tells Media Moves. “I had a chance to work alongside extremely talented journalists in one of the most competitive markets in the country. But after careful consideration, I simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to return home and assume a leadership role at what I consider to be the best local news outfit in the Borderland.”

He starts at the El Paso station next month.
