Tegna's Seattle Station Hires New Anchor

Tenga owned KING-TV in Seattle has hired a new evening Anchor and the staff found out from the press release. 

The station has hired David Espinosa-Hall as the new evening Anchor starting October.

He brings experience, personality and genuine enthusiasm to immerse himself in our community.”

Espinosa-Hall comes to KING 5 from WKMG in Orlando Florida where he has spent the last two years as their morning anchor. Before the sunshine state, Espinosa-Hall worked at KMBC in Kansas, WWOR in Secaucus, KDKA in Pittsburgh and WTOC in Savannah, Georgia.

“To join such a prestigious television news station like KING-TV is an amazing career opportunity. I look forward to joining this team of veteran journalists and calling Seattle my home,” wrote David Espinosa-Hall.

He starts at the station in September and will hit the air as Anchor in October.
