Ciara Rouege became a digital producer at the CW39 Houston in 2016 after working as a content creator for several well-respected news organizations including Community Impact Newspapers, KPRC Channel 2 and KTRK ABC-13.

News media has been her passion and focus since studying the craft at the University of Houston, where she was recognized as a leader for her dedicated participation at the school’s Center for Student Media. During her college years, Ciara played a key role in the establishment and success of two of COOGTV’s longest running programs, “AT UH News” and “In the Game.”

She was also a reporter for the campus newspaper The Daily Cougar and the leading editor of a special issue that explored the modern nuances of sexuality. The project, which was the first sex-focused issue in the paper’s 60-year history, was a multimedia collaboration and featured the publication’s first-ever cover photoshoot. In 2015, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and an English minor.

Ciara was born in New Orleans but proclaims herself a proud Houstonian. She often drags her friends and four younger siblings across the Houston region in search of the latest dining crazes, most fun activities and other local gems.

No matter the medium, it’s always her goal to bring audiences content that either entertains, empowers or enlightens.
