Samica Knight is an award winning journalist who is living her lifelong dream. She is a native Houstonian and feels blessed to be back in her hometown but also back at KTRK, the station where she interned.


Samica comes to KTRK from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania were she was a general assignments reporter and fill-in anchor at WHP-TV. Prior to working in Pennsylvania, she spent time at KXXV in Waco. During her stay there, she covered everything from President George W. Bush at his Crawford Ranch to high profile courts-martial cases on Fort Hood.

She has received awards from The Associated Press and the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters. She was recognized for a story she investigated about a Pennsylvania company that took thousands of dollars from employees for health insurance that did not exist. Her investigation led to the introduction of state legislation.

Samica is an alumnus of Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the Houston Children's Chorus. In her spare time she enjoys singing, an art that has taken her to the stage of Carnegie Hall and to the cities of Shenzen, Shanghai and Beijing, China.

Samica is active in her church and works diligently as a volunteer in her community. She is thrilled that she now has a chance to spend more time with her family, including her dogs.
