Colorado Springs News Director Out

By Kevin Eck 

KRDO news director Jene Nelson is no longer with the Colorado Springs ABC affiliate.

“I want to express my gratitude for the overwhelming outpouring of support after my departure from KRDO,” Nelson wrote on her Facebook page. “I am deeply touched and very grateful! I am going to take a much needed rest (no vacation for 3 1/2 years!) and decide what is next.”

Nelson also told friends the station recently won the 10 p.m.

She was freelancing at Denver Fox affiliate KDVR before joining KRDO in January 2013 as managing editor. She was then named assistant news director and became news director in 2014.
