On Monday, FOX 26 revealed that Anthony Antoine will be joining the evening news team of Rashi Vats, Caroline Collins, and meteorologist Remeisha Shade.
Most recently, Antoine served as an early morning news anchor in Richmond, Va. on NBC affiliate WWBT, and later mornings on WRLF FOX. Prior to that, he spent six years at WCIA3 in Champaign, IL, where he started as a camera operator and was promoted to reporter and then anchor. He is a graduate of Bowling Green State University and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in telecommunications.
“Since migrating to the United States from Trinidad and Tobago, I’ve always chased my version of the American dream,” Antoine said in a press release. “Ascending to this position, in such an amazing and diverse city feels like a dream come true. For Houstonians, I hope to be a calming and reassuring voice during difficult times, and when appropriate, I look forward to laughing and enjoying the positive stories in this great community.”
In the announcement, Susan Schiller, station vice president and news director, stated: “Anthony will be a perfect addition to the FOX 26 team as he shares our commitment to journalistic integrity and cares deeply about the community he serves.”
