Former Spokane Anchor Makes Super Bowl Ad Appearance

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Former Spokane anchor Kirk Hawkins is resurfacing during the Super Bowl.

The former KXLY anchor makes an appearance in a 90-second spot for Amazon’s Alexa. He appears in the ad for just less than two seconds according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review.

The commercial also features celebrities Gordon Ramsay, Anthony Hopkins and Cardi B.“When I saw it, I thought, ‘Of course it’s Kirk,’” executive news director Melissa Luck told the paper.

Hawkins worked at the ABC affiliate from 2004 to 2007. He now lives in Los Angeles and has pursued a career in acting.

Here’s the ad, which Adweek calls one of the best of today’s Big Game.
