Kirk Yuhnke


If you're looking for a news anchor with a hard work ethic, the ability to transform your newscast and drive a team to make a difference, I'm your guy. Check out my videos below for a glimpse of my anchor style.


Fox31 Denver Morning Anchor

Our show was in 5th place, dead last, when I walked in the door. I enjoyed the challenge of building trust with viewers and create a morning news show that was designed around balance. We cover breakin news like nobody else but also know when to flip the switch and help our viewers wake up with some fun moments.

April 2013 - Present

ABC15 Phoenix Morning Anchor

I was brought in to help transform a top 15 market morning show that was perianial dog in the market. We designed a newscast that was focused on new, now, next producing. I also helped launched the Now@9 social media driven 9am hour. As a tech reporter I also developed my daily technology franchise and reported live from CES in Las Vegas 3 years in a row.

December 2009 - April 2013

Fox13 Utah Morning Anchor/Reporter

I was the early morning anchor and reporter for Good Day Utah in Salt Lake City. I helped drive a morning show from second to first and continue a legacy of news and fun in Salt Lake.

December 2006 - December 2009

ABC12 Flint Wknd Morning Anchor

I worked as the weekend morning show anchor and a general assignment reporter. I helped produce and write the morning show. I specialized in technology reporting and produced a gadget of the week segment for our weekend morning show.

September 2004 - December 2006


Emmy "Technology Program -- Feature/Segment

Emmy award for my daily technology segment, Kirk Yuhnke - Tech Junkie. I have produced this segment since I started in the business 20 years ago as a way to combine my geek hat with my journalist hat.

Emmy Award "Informational/Instructional - Feature/Segment

Emmy away for my product test segment, Kirk Does It Work? I have produced this segment in various markets to have a fun light-hearted way to test out consumer products.

Emmy Award "Environment -- Program/Feature

I was a part of a 30-minute special on the 1 year anniversary of the Colorado floods.

Emmy Award "Anchor - Breaking News"

This emmy was for a newscast where we covered a police chase live and our helicopter even assisted police after they decided to back off from the chase. With our information, they caught back up with the truck and we continued live coverage as police removed a false bottom from the truck and arrested several undocumented immigrats being snuck into the US.


I'm always looking to talk about future oppurtunities if you're looking for your next anchor. If you'd like to chat, don't hesitate to contact me directly via email at
