KARE Morning Anchor Leaves Station

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KARE 11, the Tegna owned NBC affiliate, has said goodbye to its longtime morning anchor.

Kim Insley is no longer with the station’s morning show after waking people up in the Twin Cities for 24 years.

“Kim has been a leader in the newsroom and we are appreciative and grateful for her many contributions,” the station said in a Facebook post Friday.


Insley posted about a video about her departure on Facebook as well. She didn’t give a reason for leaving her post on the longest-running morning show in the Twin Cities but says there is a lot of look forward to.

Her colleagues have posted their own sentiments about the news.

KARE 11 meteorologist Belinda Jensen wrote, “You have always been a true leader for mornings at the station thru so many changes, not to mention conquering the working hours that most would of crumbled under, given your longevity.”

Insley’s co-anchor, Tim McNiff, will stay with the station.
