News Anchor Taniya Wright Left KPRC in 2020 — What Was the Reason?
Taniya Wright joined KPRC 2 in August 2019 as the station's morning show anchor and midday newscaster.
During her tenure, the professional news anchor never shied away from reflecting her work enthusiasm — posting videos from her office on her social media.
Judging by her exuberant yet goofy social media posts, Wright was having a good time, at least professionally. But on May 2020, she suddenly left KPRC 2 and shocked her followers.
Why Did Wright Leave KPRC 2?
Wright's departure from the KPRC 2 was rather abrupt.
She revealed the reason for her exit in the comment section of her Facebook post dated April 2020.
When asked why she was no longer involved with the NBC-affiliated television station, she disclosed that the management let her go. However, an obvious reason for her discharge wasn't made explicit.
Her comment has since been deleted, but the unhappiness among her fans was apparent in the comment section. One Facebook user wrote, "I thought you were a great addition to KPRC."
"I think management needs a do-over,” added another.

She started her career as a broadcast journalist after graduating from the University of South Florida in mass communications in 2006.
In her over 13 years of career, she has worked as an associate producer/producer for WFLA-TV, an anchor and reporter for WDVM TV and KJRH, and as a morning and noon news anchor for WNCN.
What Is Taniya Wright up to Now?
Wright dedicates her leisure to her eponymous YouTube channel, where she publishes content, ranging from her travel experience to health tips.
Her notable video contents include her recovery from a fibroid removal surgery, travel vlogs from Colorado and Tampa, funny videos about her cat, and even beauty product reviews.
Her optimistic and cheerful persona shines in each of her videos and proves that the news anchor hasn't let her current situation put a dent on her positive energy.
