Griffith’s first day at the Denver Fox affiliate will be August 22. “I have no doubt that through my time here I have improved immensely, not only as a professional but also as a person,” he wrote in a memo to KMBC staffers obtained by Bottom Line Communications. “Regardless of the circumstances or challenges, this team always finds a way to remain resilient and succeed. I have no doubt it will continue to do so.”
Griffith, who is the sports anchor on the evening and nighttime broadcasts at the Kansas City ABC affiliate, said in the memo that the move is partially because he is engaged to a Denver native who still has family in the area. Griffith, who has also been sports director at KTKA in Topeka and KIDK in Idaho Falls, will say goodbye to KMBC on August 8.
