MacMullan headed to CW2


Just chatted with former KRDO/Channel 13 "Good Morning Colorado" anchor Kellie MacMullan. She's had the past two weeks off and says she's been getting more sleep than she has in four years.

That ends next week, when she starts as a reporter and fill-in anchor for CW2's morning news up in Denver. Comcast carries CW2 on Channel 22, so if you're a Mac fan, you can still watch her. Her first day on air should be Thursday, when she'll be filling in on the anchor desk.

"I loved Colorado Springs," Mac said. "It’s been a great, great time to be here. I want to tell everybody, 'Thank you for watching.'"

Good news for viewers, bad news for all the Colorado Springs stations. More people will now choose CW2 over 13, 5/30, 11 and FOX21.

Congrats, Kellie! You deserve nothing but the very best, and we'll be watching!

Actually CW2 won't be available much longer in the Springs. They were allowed on cable when they were the WB but now that they are CW there is already a CW in the Springs so they will be phased out. Plus, there is no value to a Denver news product in the Springs and their ratings clearly show it. People who live in Southern Colorado watch the local stations, not Denver. Ratings tell this story! Good luck to Kellie though.

"there is no value to a Denver news product in the Springs"

Absolutely wrong!

I watch the first few minutes of the Springs stations and if there is no substantial news, switch to the Denver stations for a better presentation.

The new woman on KRDO is Heather Skold. And before you go ranting on and on about local stations not hiring local talent, Heather is from Haxtun, Colorado. Her previous market was Boise, which you have already indicated you hate, but before that it was Grand Junction. As Andy reported in the Gazette, she'll be anchoring the 5 p.m. newscast. And if Haxtun isn't local enough for you, the aforementioned Nicole Darin is a UCCS grad and went to Coronado High School in Colorado Springs.

Anna Jensen left KRDO for family and medical reasons.

Ty Shesky went to KOB in Albuquerque.

Dang sorry to see the hot newsie go to Denver. Vulcan you say? She could put me in a Vulcan death grip and I'd die a happy man!

Not a suprise though. Congrats Kellie and good luck.

haha, john carroll just did the slip of the tongue...he was reporting on the story of the Utah trapped miners, when he said the owner of the mine was going to drill another BOLE WHORE. He meant to say HOLE BORE into the mountain...he didn't even flinch...guess no one caught it except for me...for you tivo's out there, it was the 5pm newscast today, 8/27 about 5:10 to 5:15 timeframe...sure was a tongue twister!

You should know! Get back under the big top, bozo, and get a life. Learn how to speak and type before you go busting those toothless gums.

Denver is SO lucky to get Kellie. A hometown girl, especially one with a career that is limitless, is such a prize. Beyond the fact that she is talented beyond her years, she is sure fun to look at.

Limitless career potential is right! Kellie will have a long, prosperous, and prominent career in Denver, whether it's in TV or not. Many years down the line she and we will look back on her time at KRDO as just a little blip on the way to the top. She is someone you want to know... because she's going places!

Zack Thaxton we know you're her biggest fan but move on for goodness sake.

Channel 13 certainly isn't known for having stars but Kelly was the reason most people watched. Everyone I talk to says they watch because of her or Jon Carrol. He's very smooth and seems to be a very nice guy. Kelly is young and pretty and a real wise ass, so she was interesting to watch. Who is going to replace her? Is Zach going to stay there or will he move on, too?

thats why i hate to see the outsourcing of tv talent here. in colorado springs..new kristin clark /koaa tv sucked, she said that " there was no rain"in the forecast .well kristin there was..a lot of rain at my house. ben legg/krdotv was right there. great forecaster indeed.i wished that ms clark get her act together.and i dont bother looking or watching at these local tv stations like kxrm, kcnc,kwgn tv etc. they boore me to death.this town has too many tv stations to watch

So what's your solution, Daddio? Hire EXCLUSIVELY locals who have only lived in Southern Colorado their entire lives? Only those who grew up here, went to school here, went to the colleges here, and then hire them the day after college graduation? I assure you that you'd be greatly disappointed at the results if stations did that.

So how come she doesn't appear on the CW2 Web site? As of Sept. 9 there's no mention of her there?

Stations across the country are notoriously lazy about getting bios posted for their new hires. She's there and has been reporting and even anchoring the past few days.

Nicole Darin is the one who looks like a vulture. And she's nasty too... so rude. Did she get fired off of 13?

I don't think Nicole Darin got fired... I heard she's working as a sports anchor out in Minnesota. I don't think she is rude at all!!! I met her once when she was out covering snow storms and she was an absolute sweetheart!
