KCPQ Shelves Two Local News Features, Danamarie McNicholl Leaves KREM 2 Spokane

KCPQ 13 has paused Washington’s Most Wanted, hosted by David Rose, and The Divide, hosted by Brandi Kruse. The two news features, may return once new management is in place and up to speed. Earlier, we reported that Q13 News management was shuffling the deck chairs, with a new General Manager moving into position and Jake Wiederrich subbing as Acting Assistant News Director. The News Director position is currently vacant. ND Erik Breon has been on extended medical leave since March. For all the commotion behind the scenes, Q13 continues to put out quality newscasts.

New Day Northwest has a new producer. Rebecca Perry moves from the news side to the KING 5 morning program.

Danamarie McNicholl ready for the next big adventure…

It’s crazy to think it’s my last week at @krem2 . It’s hard to put into words what my time at this station has meant to me both professionally and personally. Looking back at these moments will forever bring me so much joy and happiness.

  1. One of the few remaining GREAT shows on TV is THE DIVIDE with Brandi Kruse – – – and now it is gone! ?
    I understand that with new management new programming needs to be considered – – – – BUT this show is amazing. Ms. Kruse is one of the VERY FEW on tv that attempts to present an unbiased look at local events/people/programs. She has a very unique way of presenting BOTH sides of issues affecting those in her viewing and listening areas.
    PLEASE bring back The Divide!!!
