2 Months After Hit-and-Run, Kerri Cronk Returns to KSTU Anchor Desk Full-Time

Two months after sustaining a broken neck, a dislocated shoulder and a concussion in a hit-and-run accident, KSTU anchor Kerri Cronk has returned to her full-time schedule at the station.

Cronk was riding her bicycle in August when she collided with a vehicle, which she recalls being white. Despite efforts from KSTU, the driver has not yet been found. “I’m disappointed, sure,” Cronk tells the Salt Lake Tribune. “But I’ve kind of come to terms with it. I’m not going to wallow.”

Cronk returned to her position as morning anchor at the Salt Lake City Fox-affiliate in late September. Beginning today, she will resume her full-time schedule, which also includes the 11 a.m. and noon newscasts. “If I make a mistake, I say, ‘Oh, it’s the concussion,’” Cronk joked.

Before her time with KOMO, Ginter worked as a reporter for WSPA in Spartanburg, SC, where she was named “Reporter of the Year” by the South Carolina Broadcasters Association for her investigative reporting.

KNSD anchor Susan Taylor announced this week that she will leave the station after more than 15 years to spend more time with her family.

“After a lot of long talks with myself and my family, I decided not to extend my contract here at NBC 7,” Taylor said. “This was 100% my decision. The station offered me a fair, generous contract that would have had me here for years to come.”

Taylor anchors the 4, 4:30, 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts at the NBC owned-and-operated station in San Diego. Her last day has not been determined, but the station will “take some time” determining her replacement.
