Chicago Anchor Going Back to Lexington

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

It’s back to Kentucky for Fox 32 anchor Kristen Nicole.

The Chicago anchor announced she’s expected her third child this summer and after maternity leave she’ll head back home to Lexington, Ky. to anchor at her former station.

“I am going to take some time off to enjoy maternity leave with all my boys, but this fall I am thrilled to be joining Marvin Bartlett anchoring central Kentucky’s first and most watched 10pm newscast on FOX 56! I’ll also have the opportunity to work alongside some incredibly talented veteran journalists at our news partner, WKYT. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect scenario for my family,” she said in a Facebook post.


When Nicole left Lexington in 2016 she was anchoring at WLEX, the NBC affiliate in the market. She joined Fox 32 as a weekend anchor at the time and went by the name Kristen Pflum.

Her last day in Chicago will be May 31.
