Dina Kupfer didn’t have to go far for her new job.
Kupfer, who left ABC10 last week after five years with the station, anchored her first show with CBS13 on Wednesday morning. She’ll be behind the desk from 5 to 7 a.m., then move over to the station’s flagship Good Day Sacramento program, according to an Instagram post Tuesday night.
“This community is my home, and I am so honored to continue telling YOUR stories!” Kupfer wrote. “Thank you all for your kind notes and words of encouragement over these past few days. I am sincerely humbled and so very grateful for you all.”
“Rise up. Start fresh. See the bright opportunity in each new day.” I am so excited to share that I will be joining the incredibly talented group of journalists at CBS13/CW31! Starting tomorrow morning, I will be filling in on the anchor desk. You can catch me weekdays from 5-7AM on CBS13 in Sacramento and then I’ll move over to Good Day Sacramento for the remainder of the morning! I am so fortunate to be a part of this amazing morning family — ya’ll, they work hard! I am also very happy to be staying in NorCal (you all know I can’t be too far away from the mountains)! This community is my home, and I am so honored to continue telling YOUR stories! Thank you all for your kind notes and words of encouragement over these past few days. I am sincerely humbled and so very grateful for you all. I hope you’ll join me in this new adventure!

A University of Oregon alumna, Kupfer won a regional Emmy award for transportation/traffic reporting last year.
Kupfer’s decision to stay within the Sacramento market elicited appreciation from viewers on social media.
Former Good Day Sacramento anchor Melissa Cabral left the program and television in general in March.
