KQDS Hires Diane Alexander to Anchor Evening News

KQDS, the Fox affiliate in Duluth, has hired Diane Alexander to be the 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. co-anchor. Her first broadcasts are tonight.

Alexander, who will anchor the evening broadcasts alongside Dan Hanger, started her television career as a reporter at KVRR in Fargo before leaving the station to take a break from television. She said she was “thrilled to be back in the news industry.”

“Diane is a fantastic addition to the FOX 21 News, and I’m fully confident the Northland will warm up to her instantly,” news director Jason Vincent said.

Alexander replaces Nick LaFave, who left the station last month for an anchor position at KTAL in Shreveport.
