KGET Bids Farewell to Anchor Robin Mangarin

Last night, KGET said goodbye to longtime evening anchor Robin Mangarin, who announced her retirement from the news business in May. Mangarin has been with the Bakersfield NBC affiliate for much of her 25-year career in television.

KGET’s nearly nine-minute tribute video was narrated by Mangarin’s husband and co-anchor, Jim Scott, who she married in 1989 (video above). He will continue to anchor KGET’s 5 p.m, 6 p.m., and 11 p.m. newscasts.

“She has brought class and clarity to the Golden Empire’s news media, and she leaves with a footprint on our hearts,” Scott said of his wife.

Longtime Anchor Robin Mangarin Leaving KGET

KGET anchor and executive producer Robin Mangarin, who has been a fixture at the Bakersfield NBC-affiliate for the past 15 years, is leaving TV to begin a career in community service.

“Leaving my KGET family was a very difficult decision but I do believe, from the bottom of my heart, that this is the right decision for me and my family,” Mangarin said.  “This move enables me to pursue a path I have thought about for a long time.”

For much of her 15 years with KGET, Mangarin has anchored the station’s evening newscasts alongside her husband Jim Scott. He will remain as anchor of the 5, 6, and 11 p.m. newscasts.

“Robin’s community service and commitment to a large number of local non-profit groups has been a huge part of KGET’s fiber over the past 15 years,” said KGET news director John Pilios.  “Her tireless work in that area is a very significant part of the station’s overall success.”
