“I’ve had the best job in the world … and on many occasions, the worst, because also too numerous to mention, are all the stories that brought you and me to tears,” Trevino writes in a guest post on MikeMcGuff.com. “Triumphs and tragedies and everything in between. Sorry if that sounds like a cliché, but that’s life. And ‘life’ is basically what I still cover, to this day.”

Jang, who has been at the Seattle Fox-affiliate for seven years, announced in November she would relocate to Houston to be with her ailing father.
“I am incredibly blessed that KHOU is giving me this opportunity,” Jang told McGuff. “Excited to finally be home where I grew up and my parents can watch me.”
“I’m leaving Q13 and moving home to Houston,” she wrote on Facebook. “My immigrant parents worked their entire lives for my brother and me and gave us our American dreams. Now that dad’s facing Parkinson’s, I’m leaving a job I love for my family that comes first.”
Jang is KCPQ’s longtime morning anchor. Alongside Bill Wixey, she helms four hours of programming each weekday morning. She will continue to work at KCPQ through early 2012.
