Morning anchor Dina Kupfer will give her final broadcast on ABC10 on Thursday after five years with the station, she announced via social media.

Kupfer hinted she would remain in Northern California and asked viewers to continue following her Facebook page, where a new employment announcement was imminent.

A University of Oregon alumna, Kupfer joined ABC10 in December 2012 after anchoring at NBC affiliate KRNV4 in her hometown of Reno. She won a regional Emmy award for transportation/traffic reporting in 2016.

Kupfer’s husband, Robbie Beasom, is a news photographer for KNTV11, the Bay Area’s NBC affiliate.

ABC10 shed longtime anchors Dale Schornack and Cristina Mendonsa earlier this year and recently decided not to renew anchor Carlos Saucedo and reporter Pierre Noujaim’s contracts. The station also added Sacramento television veteran Mark S. Allen last year and weekend anchor Rachel Wulff last week.
