Best Of Tucson®

Best Local TV Newscast

KOLD Channel 13

Another station may have the look-alike logo, but the real Fantastic Four in Tucson is KOLD evening-news anchors Dan Marries and Heather Rowe, sports director Damien Alameda, and chief meteorologist Chuck George. Add the morning crew of Scott Kilbury, Kayna Whitworth and Erin Jordan, plus noon anchor Mindy Blake, and KOLD becomes a powerful force for truth, justice and the American way. (Yes, we know that juxtaposes two different comic brands.) The KOLD crew retains a delivery style that is direct, factual and positively mild-mannered by today's histrionic news standards.
