Veteran news anchor David Nancarrow is leaving KKTV and broadcast news. Nancarrow recently confirmed that he has taken the position of Director of Communications for Falcon School District 49.

“This is very bittersweet,” said Nancarrow. “KKTV 11 News gave me the enviable opportunity to work in the place I’ve always considered home, as well as giving me fulfilling and challenging assignments and multiple avenues to grow as a journalist. Although it's time to explore a new and rewarding challenge, it is very difficult to say goodbye. I've watched School District 49 grow over the years and I'm thrilled to be a part of its promising future.”

A Colorado State graduate, Nancarrow joined KKTV in 2003 after spending time at CBS affiliate KFDA in Amarillo, Texas. During his time at the KKTV, he worked his way up from reporter to morning anchor. His last day on air will be Jan. 19. 

“We really hate to lose Dave but it’s a great opportunity for him,” said KKTV general manager Nick Matesi. "He’s been a crucial part of what we do for 15 years and has been a part of every big story since then. From Waldo Canyon to his trip to Iraq with Fort Carson soldiers, Dave has taken on every assignment with 100 percent and then some professionalism. He started at KKTV the same week I did so Dave and I go way back. I have the utmost respect for the work he’s done for us and will always be grateful.”

Nancarrow begins his new job at D49 on Jan. 22. KKTV has made no announcement yet regarding his replacement.
