Keith Garvin back in the running as newest anchor-reporter for Houston's KPRC-TV (updated with comments from Garvin)

Former CBS11 anchor-reporter Keith Garvin, whose last day at the station was Monday, has quickly landed on his feet in another Texas TV newsroom.

He's been hired by Houston's KPRC-TV as a 4 p.m. anchor and nightside reporter. Garvin is replacing the NBC affiliate's Iain Page, starting next week.

Garvin's hiring was first reported by vigilant Houston blogger Mike McGuff on his media website.

"My family and I are very excited about this move," Garvin said in an email to unclebarky.com. "I will miss North Texas but am looking forward to calling Houston my new home. This will allow me to work for a great station and be closer to my hometown of Bryan. If no one else is excited about that, I know my mother definitely is!"

Garvin initially came to Texas in November 2009 as co-anchor of the now defunct First In Prime local newscast on CBS11's sister station, TXA21. He later moved to the co-anchor slot on CBS11's early morning news program before Brendan Higgins was named to replace him. Garvin then understandably looked for other work while hanging on at CBS11 as a reporter and fill-in anchor. And now he's found it.
