Audrey Asistio Joins KOVR as Morning Anchor

Audrey Asistio is the new morning anchor at KOVR, the CBS O&O in Sacramento.

Asistio, a Bay Area native, joins KOVR from KSEE in Fresno, where she has been a reporter and anchor for two years. She has previously worked at KHSL-KNVN in Chico as well as KIMA in Yakima.

“We’re happy to have a California native with Audrey’s experience join our morning team.  She will bring a great deal of energy to our morning news,” KOVR news director Cameryn Beck said in a statement. “Combined with meteorologist Laura Skirde, I believe we will give viewers a fresh new reason to wake up with CBS13.”

Asistio replaces Lisa Gonzales, who left KOVR for rival KCRA in December.
