New Role For Kyle Dyer at Denver’s KUSA

KyleDyerKyle Dyer is leaving the morning newscast at KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver. In her new role, which begins in July, Dyer will continue toanchor the 11 a.m. and noon newscasts and provide taped pieces for the morning newscast, the Denver Post reports:

“We offered her (a contract) to stay on fulltime,” News Director Patti Dennis said. “She wanted to renew her contract but in a different role, citing family obligations. She’ll no longer have to come in at 3 a.m.”

Her daughters are now 11 and 9, Dyer said, with increasing homework and after-school activities. “It’s hard to be present. It’s something I’ve thought about the last couple of years.” Additionally, she’s been keeping “these weird hours” since December 1993, even before she landed at KUSA.

The adjustment “will be just as weird for viewers” as it will be for her, Dyer said. But she reminds those who have had morning coffee with her for nearly two decades, “I’ll be there on tape.”
