Reflecting on Her Dog Bite Injuries, Kyle Dyer: ‘In This Business What You Look Like Is a Lot’

In addition to sitting down with KUSA this week to talk about her recovery from an on-air dog bite, anchor Kyle Dyer did an on-camera interview with the Denver Post.

While she was candid about the incident in her interview with her KUSA co-anchor Gary Shapiro, she appears more at-ease, and is more reflective, in the Denver Post interview, even at one point joking about the incident: “We all think we know how to pet a dog, but we don’t.  I don’t, obviously.”

An anchor with KUSA since 1996, Dyer also spoke about how the facial injuries she suffered could affect her career on TV (video inside). Read more

Kyle Dyer Talks About Dog Bite in KUSA Interview

Two weeks after she was bit by a dog on-air, and just days after she underwent a second operation to repair injuries suffered in the incident, KUSA anchor Kyle Dyer returned to television Thursday night in an interview with Gary Shapiro, her longtime co-anchor.

“I didn’t realize the extent of the injury. I knew it was bad when my lips didn’t touch anymore,” Dyer told Shapiro, recalling the dog bite.  “First thing I think is, ‘I’m bleeding and it had to be live on TV.’ Then I thought, ‘I got to call my mom before one of her bridge friends calls her.’”

KUSA promoted the interview during its newscasts earlier in the day, showing Dyer in profile but withholding a view of her mouth and nose.  In the actual interview, though, Dyer didn’t shy away from revealing her wounded face (video inside). Read more

Dyer is taping an interview with her longtime co-anchor Gary Shapiro today that will air tonight during KUSA’s 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts.

“It’s been two weeks since the accident in our studio,” Shapiro tells viewers in a promo for the interview. “During that time, Kyle wasn’t able to talk.  But she can now–about what happened, about her recovery, and, most importantly, to thank you for all of your prayers and support” (video here).

KUSA Anchor Attacked by Rescued Dog During Morning Newscast

The heartwarming story of a local dog rescued from an icy pond on Tuesday took a turn for the worse this morning as the dog reportedly attacked KUSA morning anchor Kyle Dyer during the station’s 7 a.m. newscast.

Max, an 85-pound Argentine Mastiff, fell through the ice on a pond near his home Tuesday evening and spent roughly 20 minutes stranded in the freezing water before firefighters made a dramatic rescue, which was caught on tape by KUSA’s news helicopter.

After teasing Max’s visit to the KUSA studio throughout the morning, the station had him on during its 7 a.m. show, which airs on KTVD.  While Max was meeting the KUSA morning team, he bit Dyer on the face (video inside). Read more
