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.
