Posted at 8:15 AM, May 06, 2022

Shannon Newth anchored her last "Montana This Morning" broadcast on Friday, May 6, 2022, after being part of KRTV for more than 16 years.

She job-shadowed at KRTV when she was still in high school, interned at KRTV while in college, and became a full-time part of the team in 2008.

Shannon is moving on to become the content director for Visit Great Falls Montana, which promotes our community as a tourist destination.

Here is part of her farewell message:

KRTV has been such a big part of my life for so many years. After job shadowing and interning, I never would've imagined what the next 14 years would bring. The station has been my work family through difficult times and happy ones.

I've made wonderful friends and met my husband. I've grown up here.

I'm proud to have been part of a legacy station and am grateful to have been entrusted to tell the stories of the community. It's something I don't take lightly. While I've made mistakes over the years, I've also grown and learned a lot.

Everyone at KRTV is grateful for her many years of reporting and anchoring, and wish her the absolute best in her new adventure.

Colter Anstaett, who currently anchors our weekend newscasts, will now take over hosting duties on "Montana This Morning."
