Kellie MacMullan to Leave Denver for Sacramento

Kellie MacMullan, currently the sole anchor of KWGN’s 7pm newscast, is leaving her native Colorado for NBC-affiliated and Hearst-owned station KCRA in Sacramento. Here’s more from the Sacramento Bee:

“KCRA is very excited to have found someone with Kellie’s journalistic excellence and anchoring experience to join our award-winning team,” said Anzio Williams, KCRA’s news director. “She will be a valuable leader in our newsroom and someone our viewers will quickly come to trust and respect.”

“I’m very grateful to KCRA 3 for this unbelievable opportunity,” MacMullan said. “I can’t wait to be a part of the best news team in Sacramento.”

MacMullan joined KWGN in 2007 as anchor of the 9pm news with Ernie Bjorkman. Following KWGN’s merger with KDVR and rebrand, MacMullan launched the 7pm news and has been anchor ever since.

It is unknown whether or not her departure is related to the recent announcement that ABC News anchor and former KDVR anchor Jeremy Hubbard is returning to Denver and will anchor the 7pm and 10pm news on KWGN and KDVR.

MacMullan joins KCRA June 27th. It is unknown when she will leave KWGN.

  1. That’s really sad to hear. After the entire Deuce issue, Kellie was a solid anchor of a solid newscast.

  2. I’m certainly surprised to learn of this news, especially on the heels of Chris Tanaka’s unexpected departure, which I didn’t learn about until after the fact. I wish her well but I also welcome Jeremy Hubbard back to town, as he has always been a favorite of mine. I enjoyed seeing him on ABCNewsNow and more recently on World News w/Diane Sawyer.

  3. Kellie, I am REALLY going to miss you. I waited until 7pm to watch the news. My wife is the only one who is glad you have left.

  4. Denver lost a great TV personality to Sacramento. Good luck Kellie. We’ll
    Miss you!
