Northern California Anchor Retires After Nearly 40 Years

By Kevin Eck 

Debbie Cobb has retired from KHSL-KNVN in Chico, Ca. after 38 years at the station.

“Thank you for almost 40 years of serving in Northern California,” Cobb wrote on the station’s website. “Thank you for allowing me to have the most incredible career ever. I don’t know what the future holds, but I can assure you, I will not forget this adventure.”

Cobb’s letter says she started her career as a paid intern at KCRA in Sacramento in the ’80s. While attending Chico State, she was hired as a full time reporter at the CBS-NBC affiliate, where she has worked as a weekend anchor, noon news anchor and evening anchor.
