According to KDVR-Fox 31 Denver, Chris Tanaka, the smiling, dimpled sports anchor and director at the station, has left for his native Hawaii, where he will hold the same position at Raycom stations KGMB/KHNL/KFVE. This has also been reported in the Star Advertiser.
Todd Romero, whom you may remember as a longtime sports anchor on KUSA-Channel 9 and a presenter on WWE SmackDown, anchored the sports tonight on KWGN/KDVR and was warmly welcomed by his former colleague, Ron Zappolo. It is unknown whether Romero is Tanaka’s full-time replacement or if Zubin Mehenti or Josina Anderson, the other sports anchors currently at the station, will take Tanaka’s place.
Tanaka had been with KDVR since December 2003.
