In 1996, a new morning anchor arrived at 9NEWS from Louisville. Little did we know what an impact she would have on 9NEWS and Denver. On Monday, 9NEWS Anchor Kyle Dyer announced that she is leaving 9NEWS.

For almost two decades Dyer enthusiastically helped the community prepare for the day and became a trusted friend to loyal 9NEWS viewers. In 2014 she took on a new role at 9NEWS by anchoring our 11am and midday news, which allowed her to spend more time with her family and focus on telling community stories about inspiring people.

“Throughout my time with 9News, my career has evolved from reporting to the community, to reporting within our community,” Dyer said. “I have thoroughly enjoyed having meaningful conversations with so many people, diving deeper into some fantastic programs and sharing the stories within our extremely innovative state.”

9NEWS President and General Manager Steve Carter said, “For two-decades, Kyle has been a huge part of 9NEWS, and the lives of our viewers. In addition to being a great broadcaster, Kyle is a friend, an amazing person, and a gifted storyteller with a big heart.”

For years, Kyle has tirelessly supported programs and organizations that are improving our community. She also guided viewers through dark days like Columbine and the Aurora theater shooting.

“It is difficult to put into words what Kyle has meant to our family and the Denver community,” 9News News Director Christy Moreno said. “Kyle is a remarkable combination of talent, dedication and compassion.”

Dyer’s last day at 9NEWS will by September 7. Soon she'll be able to share details of what she’ll be doing next, which will include continued storytelling and community engagement.

“I share my heartfelt thanks to 9News for providing a wonderful home for me these past 20 years,” Dyer said.” I also have to send out an even bigger thanks to the people of Colorado who have befriended me and inspired me.”
