Twin Cities Anchor to Return

Former KARE Anchor Amy Hockert is returning to the air, but she's doing it across the street.

 Hockert is joining Fox O&O KMSP on Feb. 9th.

Hockert says she will be a special projects Reporter and Anchor at KMSP.

Hockert was a news anchor at KARE for six years until she joined news aggregator BringMeTheNews in 2009, where she's now editor-in-chief.

She wrote a goodbye message to readers, telling them she is headed back to the boob tube. 

Talking about KMSP, Hockert says, "The producers, reporters and anchors are legacy players who understand, inherently, what's important to Minnesotans. At the same time, they're bobbing and weaving with the ever-changing way people consume news."
