Veteran Anchor Betsy Singer Is Returning to Minnesota TV

After two years away from TV, Betsy Singer is making a comeback in southern Minnesota. She will not be returning to KTTC, though, where she held the anchor chair for six years. Instead she will be the new anchor of the 5pm newscast for KTTC’s local rival, KAAL.
