Anchor Amy Troy Jumping from KGW to KOIN

In Portland, current KGW anchor Amy Troy is moving to crosstown rival KOIN.

“I start at KOIN in a few weeks,” Troy confirmed to TVSpy via email this week. She currently anchors KGW’s 5, 10, and 11 p.m. weekend newscasts and reports for the Belo-owned station during the week.

Troy is set to anchor KOIN’s 4 p.m. weekday newscast but will work as a writer at the station until her 6-month KGW non-compete expires.

“It’s a great professional opportunity and I’m honored to join KOIN’s news team,” Troy says. “Portland is home–so my family and I are thrilled.”
