Anchor Chris Egert Leaving KIRO For KSTP

After five years at KIRO in Seattle, Chris Egert is leaving to join KSTP in Minneapolis.

Egert, a morning anchor at KIRO, is moving to Minneapolis to be closer to his father, who is in poor health. He will join KSTP as a reporter and anchor at the end of this month.

KIRO news director Todd Mokhtari said Egert brought “an energy and fresh approach” to the station.

“We will miss Chris on the air and continue to make him proud with our dedicated, straightforward Seattle News Coverage,” Mokhtari said in a statement.
