Veteran local news broadcaster Kimberly Price recently announced via the Fox21 Facebook page that she’s leaving the station. Price is retiring from on-camera work to focus on a new, related enterprise. 

“I am ‘retiring’ from the news desk to work as a news talent agent,” said Price. “I'll be coaching and getting other broadcast journalists jobs. It's the perfect next step in my career, something I will be able to do for a very long time, not to mention get more sleep and see my family a lot more. I am very excited!”

Price received her BA in communications with an emphasis in broadcast journalism from Cal State Fullerton. Her first job in broadcasting was in Wichita Falls, Texas at NBC affiliate KFDX-TV. She then moved on to Colorado Springs, anchoring at KKTV where Price worked for more than a decade before spending the last eight years as the morning news anchor at KXRM/Fox21. Her last day on-air will be June 23. There's been no announcement regarding her replacement yet. 

"It has been a pleasure working with and having Kimberly anchor our morning news for the past eight years,” said Fox21 news director Joe Cole. “She is a true professional in the business and we will certainly miss her.”
