KWGN Weather Anchor Jennifer Broome is leaving the station next week, but neither she or KWGN's News Director are saying for where.
News Director Holly Gauntt said in a memo to staff: “I can’t divulge exactly what it is (Broome) will be doing but I can tell she’s moving to a top 10 market for an entirely new kind of challenge! Jenn has deep ties to Colorado and will be back here on a regular basis. She still wants to turn Explore Colorado stories when/if time allows when she’s back in town, which she plans to be a lot.”
Broome has been with the station since 2010.
As she leaves, Matt Makens has been hired starting June 20 as the meteorologist for the 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. newscasts on KWGN.
Makens, who left KMGH in March, makes his appointment official, re-emerging on-air after honoring the “no-compete” clause in his contract with KMGH.
