Fresno Anchor Heading Down The 5

A Fresno Anchor will be making the trek down the 5 to San Diego.

KGPE Anchor Lindsey Pena started in the market as an intern and worked her way up.

Now she's headed to KGTV in San Diego.

Pena started in Fresno at KSEE as a Fresno State intern, was hired in 2003. She’s handled numerous jobs, including working on the assignment desk, web producer and anchor/reporter.

The big move came in 2014 when Pena moved to the evening news replacing Evy Ramos.

The change comes only a few months after KGPE promoted weekend anchor Kathryn Herr to weekday co-anchor slot being teamed with Ken Malloy and Pena.

Malloy and Pena co-anchored the 5, 6 and 7 p.m. newscasts while Herr and Malloy handled the 11 p.m. news.

Pena worked as a reporter for major stories at 11 p.m.

Pena is now leaving for a Anchor/Reporter job at KGTV. 

“While I’m so excited to start another chapter in my life, it’s with a heavy heart that I leave behind the people I’ve grown to look forward to seeing everyday. The people who helped shape the person and journalist I am today. Words really can’t express how much I’ll miss so many of you. So I’ll simply say goodbye for now and thank you. Thank you for helping to make my dream come true,” she said in a Facebook post.
