FTVLive told you back in December that KHOU (Houston) was parting ways with News Director Phillip Bruce. 

Well now Bruce is resurfacing at a Sinclair station. 

Starting May 9th, Bruce will be the new News Director at KTUL in Tulsa. 

Here is the internal email that was sent to the staff and obtained by FTVLive:

Please join me in welcoming Philip Bruce to the Sinclair and KTUL news team. Phil is the new News Director at Channel 8 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We’re very fortunate to get such an experienced and motivated leader. Philip has worked in TV and radio for more than 30 years. Most recently, he was News Director at KHOU in Houston, Texas. He built a great product with a focus on urgency and a point of difference investigative storytelling.  
This is a homecoming of sorts for Philip. He grew up in Fayetteville, Arkansas and Channel 8 was his favorite local news station. He has a great understanding of what we need to do to reconnect and develop a loyal fan base.
Philip’s first day is May 9th.
