Candace Thornberg Promoted to Weekday Anchor at KVRR

Candace Thornberg is moving to weekdays at Fargo Fox affiliate KVRR, according to the Fargo InForum.

Thornberg joined KVRR in 2004 as a production assistant and currently works as the weekend evening anchor. In her new role, she will anchor the weekday 6 and 9 p.m. newscasts alongside Austen Schauer.

“It’s a great opportunity, and I’ve been here several years so it’s kind of an exciting new happening,” Thornberg told the InForum.

Thornberg replaces Andrea Larson, who joined rival KVLY-KXJB last year. KVRR news director Jim Shaw said Thornberg’s replacement will likely be promoted from within.

KVRR’s Andrea Larson Set to Join Rival KVLY-KXJB

Andrea Larson, the evening anchor at KVRR in Fargo, is leaving the station to join crosstown rival KVLY-KXJB, the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead reports.

It is a return to the duopoly for Larson, who worked there from 1999 to 2007. She is returning to the stations for a daytime on-air position. “I’m getting evenings back with my family, and that’s important,” Larson told the Forum.

KVRR news director Jim Shaw said Larson is leaving on good terms and that the station has begun a national search to find her replacement at the anchor desk for the 6 and 9 p.m. newscasts.
