KQDS Anchor Nick LaFave Leaves Duluth for KTAL

KQDS evening anchor Nick LaFave will leave the Duluth station on August 2 to become a lead co-anchor at KTAL in Shreveport.

LaFave has been the main anchor at the Fox affiliate since the station launched in 2007.  His move to Shreveport is a jump of 57 markets. “He’s definitely moving on to bigger and better things, and I couldn’t be more happy for him,” KQDS news director Jason Vincent told The Duluth News Tribune.

LaFave is the last of the original anchors to remain at KQDS, but the station will continue to grow despite the turnover, LaFave wrote on his Facebook page.”FOX 21 has done nothing but increase in ratings and quality every single ratings period,” he wrote. “That’s because it’s a TEAM product, not dependent on any one person.”

LaFave will anchor the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. broadcasts at KTAL, which is the NBC affiliate in Shreveport, beginning August 10.
