Scott Kilbury Moving from Arizona to New York

Scott Kilbury will be joining Rochester, NY, NBC affiliate WHEC as news anchor.

KOLD vice president and general manager Debbie Bush told TVSpy Kilbury’s last day with Tucson’s KOLD (CBS) and KMSB (FOX) was Tuesday.

“I would call Tucson home, but the irony is that from age 10-15 I lived in upstate New York,” Kilbury told the Tucson Weekly. “I’m talking to the news director and he’s telling me my mom taught at the same middle school he went to in Utica. There are all these weird connections. For the kids this is the perfect fit. But I’m going to really miss the great people in this community for all their love and support.”

Kilbury worked at KOLD for 12 years. In 2008, he made the switch from sports director to news anchor. He started his career at KPAX in Missoula, MT, and has worked at KOLN in Lincoln, NE. Read more

Former KOLD Anchor Randy Garsee Dies

Randy Garsee, former anchor for Tucson CBS affiliate KOLD, died over the weekend at his home in Virginia.

“I’m in shock, as a lot of his friends are. We can’t believe this happened,” said his former co-anchor Kris Pickel. “He was an eloquent man and prolific writer. Just a hell of a guy. I was lucky to be paired up with him.”

Garsee was a news anchor for KOLD from 1997 until 2006 before moving to KTEN in Sherman, TX, and Ada, OK. He then went to work for the U.S. Marine Corps as a public affairs specialist and journalist at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq before taking a job as communications and public affairs officer for the Center for Naval Analyses.

He is remembered by colleagues for his humor and focus, “When he would get into a story, he would really get into it,” said KOLD anchor Scott Kilbury.

According to the Arizona Daily Star, Garsee died in his sleep. He was 50.

KOLD Set to Take Over KMSB Newscasts Tomorrow

As the result of a recently struck shared services agreement in Tucson, CBS-affiliate KOLD will take over production of newscasts on Fox-affiliate KMSB beginning tomorrow, February 1st.

The 9 p.m. newscast will be anchored by Scott Kilbury during the week and Chris Holmstrom on the weekends.  Kilbury currently anchors KOLD’s 4 p.m. newscast, alongside Heather Rowe, and Holmstrom has been a reporter with the station since August. Read more

After Leave Of Absence, Chuck George Returns to Tucson’s KOLD

Chuck George, who took a leave of absence from Tucson CBS-affiliate KOLD after a rambling appearance on the air last month, has returned to his post as chief meteorologist.

George made his first appearance to little fanfare on yesterday’s 4 p.m. newscast, which is co-anchored by Scott Kilbury and Heather Rowe.  “We want to welcome back chief meteorologist Chuck George, who joins us now with a check of the forecast,” Kilbury said. George went on to report the weather on the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts.

“It worked out well,” KOLD general manager Debbie Bush told Inside Tucson Business. “We actually had a change in weather today.” Bush did not comment on the details of the chief meteorologist’s absence.

On September 6, George Tweeted 33 times in rapid succession about a variety of topics — like Sharon Osboure and the cleanliness of the restrooms at KOLD — before appearing slow and sluggish on the evening newscast. He was unable to finish his weather report, leaving his co-anchors to finish it for him. Read more

KGTV Sports Director Nearly Run Over by SUV During Live March Madness Report

“Not the best way to welcome out of state media to Tucson for the NCAA tournament,” noted anchor Scott Kilbury of Tucson’s KOLD last night.

While KGTV sports director Ben Higgins was reporting live in Tucson about the performance of hometown team San Diego State in their NCAA tournament game when a large, white SUV began reversing in his direction.

The SUV quickly closed ground on Higgins, who was aloof to the oncoming vehicle as he reported on San Diego State’s victory. Luckily his photographer jumped in at the nick of time and waved to the driver to stop (video above). Read more
