Meet Russ Pappas, our new Wake Up Western Slope News Anchor, starting March 3rd. He is happily returning to the Western Slope after leaving for less than a year. You may recognize Russ as a former Chief Meteorologist at another station in town.
Russ loves the Grand Valley for the outdoor activities it provides him and his family– he could not wait to get back. Russ intentionally failed to collect dirt from Mt. Garfield, The Colorado National Monument, and The Grand Mesa– which is a long-standing sign that you will return to the valley.
We are pleased to have Russ as part of our news team, and you can catch Caitrin Assaf anchoring our 6 and 10 p.m. broadcasts.
