 Emmy award-winning journalist, Deborah Knapp is turning 68 years old in the upcoming month, Dec but looking at her she doesn’t seem to age at all. Her amazing anchoring career is also rising year by year but in 2021 she took a big decision to take some steps back in her job. We have both good and bad news for the fans of Deborah Knapp and viewers of the KENS 5. There are rumors which say she departed from KENS 5 but it is only half true. Let's find out what happened to Deborah Knapp and what she is doing today. 

 Is Deborah Knapp officially gone from KENS 5?

 On November 22, KENS 5 announced on air that their very long-time favorite anchor Deborah Knapp will no longer be at the night, 10 pm news. This news has surely saddened many viewers without a doubt but just because she won’t anchor eyewitness News at 10 does not mean you won’t see her on tv at all.

Deborah Knapp is still working at the station. The relieving news is that she is continuing to anchor eyewitness news at 5 pm. 

Knapp went to Facebook on Nov 23 to share the news with her fam calling it her last day at 10 pm newscast. She also thanked them for sharing their evening with her.

Deborah Knapp’s Reason behind deciding to leave KENS 5? Does she have a new job?

It is not shocking to say that Deborah is one of the hardest working women in the industry.  If you take a look at her history with KENS 5 alone, she has been working at the station for more than three decades. But this year 2021, she made a decision to make her workload a little lighter. According to her, she wants to spend more time, especially the evening, with her husband and friends and work less. This means she is not looking for another job but quality time with her family.

Although Knapp won’t be there anchoring with her 10 pm team, she confirmed to watch it from her home with some glass of wine.

Check out her Instagram post where she said goodbye to the night shift work at KENS 5.

Deborah had no trouble with KENS 5 regarding her request to leave the 10 pm broadcast. So who is going to replace Knapp?

When Knapp took the request to the KENS 5 management, they happily accepted it. In fact Tom Curry, the general manager was glad that he could accommodate Knapp’s request that could lighten her workload.

Now if Knapp is not going to anchor at 10 pm then who is? So, Since Knapp made her desk empty for the 10 pm broadcast, there must be an old or new anchor. However, as of now, the station has not mentioned any names yet but we will soon find out who it’s going to be. To get updated you can follow KENS 5 on Instagram and Twitter.
