Shannon Brinias joined the KKTV 11 News team in 2006. Sadly, Tuesday evening's 10:00 newscast will be her last behind our news desk.

Shannon came to Southern Colorado from Seattle in 2006. After tonight, she will be moving on to the CBS affiliate in Sacramento, California.

"You certainly won't find anyone who loves this place as much as I have," Shannon said to the staff of KKTV Tuesday afternoon. "It's been great, and I thank you for all you've done."

Shannon's six-year co-anchor, Don Ward, wrote a blog looking back at their time working together. In it, he calculated they read over 3,000 newscasts side by side. [Read Don's Blog]

In addition to reading the news, Shannon has played a huge role in KKTV's philanthropic efforts. She's made hundreds of public appearances on behalf of community events and charitable organizations.

Our newsroom simply wont be the same without Shannon, but we wish her and her family the best of luck!
