Brittany Falkers Kgw
Viewers of Portland’s KGW-TV newscasts may have noticed some new faces, some absent ones, and should be on the lookout for some other changes scheduled to begin this Saturday. As Nina Mehlhaf, a reporter for the Portland NBC affiliate, posted on Facebook on March 10, she’s leaving her weekend evening news anchor role, and joining the weekday morning “KGW News at Sunrise” crew.
“No one’s leaving, I’m joining,” Mehlhaf said of the Sunrise show, joking, “We’re going to have 20 anchors.” Mehlhaf said she’ll be waking up at 2 a.m. to join the weekday morning news team, including Brenda Braxton, Ashley Korslien, Drew Carney, Rod Hill and Chris McGinnis.
Mehlhaf also said that they’ll be working on changes to the morning show format, with more information and fewer “talking heads” who robotically repeat headlines.
Rick Jacobs, KGW executive news director, confirms Mehlhaf’s announcement. Mehlhaf leaves the weekend news anchor chair to join the sunrise team on Monday, March 18.
Filling Mehlhaf’s weekend evening anchor spot will be Maggie Vespa, a reporter who had previously been anchor of the weekend morning news on KGW. And filling Vespa’s role as the weekend morning anchor will be the recently hired Brittany Falkers, who had been a morning anchor at WFRV-TV in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
“She’s been on the air reporting already,” Jacobs says of Falkers, who takes over the KGW weekend morning anchor shift this Saturday.
Another new face is also a somewhat familiar one. Meteorologist Joe Raineri, who had most recently worked at KIRO-TV in Seattle, joined KGW at the beginning of the year as weekend evening meteorologist and weekday reporter.
“He replaced Brian Brennan, who moved to Tucson to be closer to family,” says Jacobs. Brennan now works for KGUN 9, in Tucson, as a weather anchor and reporter.
Raineri has worked in the Portland market before, including at KATU-TV.
Also joining the KGW team is Morgan Romero, who came from Boise’s KTVB-TV, where she was known as Morgan Boydston, and was an anchor and investigative reporter. Romero joined KGW in late February.
“She’s a reporter, and she loves investigative reporting,” says Jacobs, adding that Romero’s skills will be an asset to the investigative team that includes Kyle Iboshi and Cristin Severance. Severance came to KGW with her husband, Dan Haggerty, who was hired to replace Joe Donlon — after Donlon left to work for WGN-TV in Chicago — as a main anchor of weeknight news. Haggerty and Severance arrived at KGW after working for the CBS affiliate in Dallas, Texas. Haggerty and Laural Porter co-anchor weekday evening newscasts.
“I’m really excited about these hires,” says Jacobs. While he says he doesn’t want to go into too many details about what changes might be coming to the weekday morning newscast, Jacobs says the show has been doing well for KGW.
“Change is inevitable in this business,” Jacobs says. “And I’m fortunate to have found some really good journalists.”
