Marissa Torres is joining Colorado Springs NBC-affiliate KOAA, where she will co-anchor the morning newscast.
She replaces Jennifer Horbelt, who is moving into the evening anchor role at KOAA. Torres’ first day on the air alongside Adam Atchison and meteorologist Craig Eliot will be July 30.
Torres joins the station from KOB in Albuquerque, where she was a reporter and fill-in anchor. “I am honored to be coming to KOAA and to Southern Colorado,” she said in a statement. “And yes, I really am a morning person!”
