KMGH Anchor Goes Public With Alopecia Diagnosis

Anne Trujillo, who worked at Denver ABC affiliate KMGH for more than two decades, recently went public with news about her health: she suffers from alopecia, a condition that causes her to lose her hair. The Denver Post has details on the decision to tell her KMGH viewers about the diagnosis:

Doctors biopsied her scalp two weeks ago and put a name to what Trujillo was experiencing: alopecia areata, a condition that causes round patches of hair loss and can lead to total hair loss.

She confided in her bosses. KMGH general manager Byron Grandy “took the challenge,” she said. He suggested that Trujillo, a Colorado native and 28-year veteran of Channel 7, take time off.

In Denver’s Post-Oprah Landscape, KMGH Decides to Launch First-Ever 3 p.m. Newscast

Later this month, ABC-affiliate KMGH will do something that no station in the Denver market has done before: broadcast a 3 p.m. newscast.

In an effort to capitalize on Oprah’s exit from rival KCNC, KMGH will move “The Dr. Oz Show,” which currently airs at 3, to 4 p.m., Oprah’s long-held time slot. As a result, KMGH’s 4 p.m. newscast will be bumped up to 3.

“The decision to put local news at 3 and put “Oz” at 4 is not an easy one, but it’s one we have to take advantage of,” said KMGH general manager Byron Grandy told the Denver Post recently. “It’s the natural Oprah replacement.”

The new, half-hour newscast will be anchored by Anne Trujillo and Mike Landess, with meteorologist Mike Nelson. It will make its debut on May 26th.

“We’re excited to open up a new time period to showcase meaningful stories to the news audience,” KMGH news director Jeff Harris said, adding, “News is always breaking.”
