Richard Sharp is making the move from Kansas City to Sacramento to join KTXL as the station’s new morning anchor.

This will be his second stint in the market.

“Richard is an excellent journalist. He’s credible, trusted and committed to his craft. He is the type of person we want leading our newsroom and informing our viewers. We are honored to have him on our team,” said news director Monika Diaz.


Sharp was the weekend anchor at KSHB. Prior to that, he was at KCRA in Sacramento where he was a reporter and fill-in anchor.

“I am thrilled to join the Fox 40 team, and I look forward to working with such a talented morning crew,” said Sharp. “Sacramento has always held a special place in my heart, and it will be an honor to engage with the community’s viewers once again. I’m ready to get to work,” Sharp said.

He’ll join the Tribune station starting Oct. 16.
