KEYC Anchor Annie Stensrud Pleads Guilty to DWI

KEYC anchor Annie Stensrud has pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated, according to WCCO. She will be sentenced on May 29.

Stensrud, the weekend anchor at the Mankato CBS-affiliate, was arrested for DWI in December. WCCO reports that Stensrud’s blood alcohol was 0.31, nearly four times the legal limit.

The anchor’s DWI arrest was just two weeks after she appeared to be slurring her words during a KEYC newscast. At the time, Stensrud said she had been “sick for some time” and her performance was the result of medication she was taking. She has not been seen on KEYC since that incident, although she is still listed on the station’s website as the weekend anchor.

>Update: Stensrud’s bio was taken down from the KEYC website today. News director Dan Ruiter told WCCO that she is no longer employed at KEYC.
