George A. Lupercio

George Lupercio is making his way back to Houston as an associate producer for KPRC 2’s 4:30am show with Owen Conflenti. Lupercio is leaving KBMT in Beaumont where he worked as a producer of the station’s evening shows.

He has mentored college students since 2009.  Lupercio has provided EGMN and The Venture valuable insight into investigative journalism and the broadcast news industry. The students feel comfortable coming to him with questions that they wouldn’t ask of their professors, and he helps them make valuable contacts in the media industry.

“I am thrilled to return to Houston and begin my new career as an associate producer for KPRC Local 2,” Lupercio told the blog. “I was born and raised in Houston and nothing makes more happier than to come back home.”

He started his TV career as an intern and then production assistant at KTRK 13. He also worked for The Houston Chronicle’s East End neighborhood section as a freelance writer.

“The producers and anchors at KTRK mentored me in my writing to help improve it,” Lupercio said. “Later, I started writing for the 11 a.m. newscast. A year and half later (June 2010) my supervisor, Executive Producer Jerry Vazquez, recommended me for a producer position at KBMT in Beaumont, TX.”

Now that he has moved from an ABC station to an NBC affiliate, Lupercio had to make some changes to his Twitter account. The former @abcnewsjunkie is now @nbcnewsjunkie. Smart move!

Congrats to George.
