Jeff Ehling
Jeff Ehling began his reporting career in 1986 near his hometown of Statenville, Georgia. Jeff worked for an ABC Affiliate WVGA in Valdosta, Georgia for three years before moving to NBC affiliate WMGT in Macon, Georgia. In 1990, he got a job working for the CBS affiliate, WCTV, in Tallahassee, Florida. While there, he was the Bureau Chief in Valdosta which gave him the chance to again report on the news wherein the place he graduated high school and college. Before leaving WCTV, he was promoted to Weekend Anchor.

In 1996, Jeff moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, where he was a general assignment reporter. He looks back on South Florida with great fondness because that is where he met his wife.

In December of 1999, Jeff's wife got a job in Houston so they moved to Texas. A month later, he was fortunate enough to land a position as the morning reporter at KTRK.

Since joining the ABC13 family, Jeff's family has grown. He and his wife are proud parents of two boys who keep them very busy and occasionally bleary-eyed.


During Jeff's tenure at KTRK, he has covered hurricanes, Operation Iraqi Freedom from Kuwait and Iraq and Texas troops guarding the prisoners at Guantanamo, Cuba. He looks forward to many more exciting stories and happy years in Houston.

Jeff enjoys travel and pro football (GO TEXANS). He holds a degree in Television from Valdosta State University.
