Unlike so many of her peers at local anchor desks, Anne Trujillo is not about glamour. Rather, she simply and straightforwardly reports the news -- which is supposed to be her job, right? Because she's on Channel 7, which has been ratings-challenged for a generation, she hasn't gotten the attention that's routinely showered upon her rivals. So even if the return of Channel 9 alum Mike Landess doesn't reverse the station's slide, Trujillo is still a great reason to tune in.


Okay, we surrender. With her features about big fish and photos of sunsets, Kathy Sabine, Channel 9's veteran morning weathercaster, can be so relentlessly perky that those of us who have a tough time waking up occasionally feel the urge to throw something heavy at her televised image. But Sabine also happens to be a smooth and professional weather-info deliverer -- and for morning people, she's like a nice cup of coffee.

Tim Ring has a big job: He's got to hold together half-hour broadcasts that are filled with nothing but sports news -- and to make matters worse, he's got to deal with irritating co-host Gordie Hershiser. But he accomplishes both tasks with aplomb. He's smart, quick-witted and funny, though he knows when to reel in the humor and concentrate on the matter at hand, seldom going too far over the line.

A 9 News photog, Brian Willie was following basketballer Nick Van Exel to the locker room after another loss by the Denver Nuggets when he caught then-coach Dan Issel hurling his now-famous insult at a fan. Which is why Issel is a former coach.

Tom Green got jobbed in 2001, leaving Channel 7 to join Fox Sports Net, only to have the position melt away before he could take it. So it's nice to see Green, one of Denver's sharpest personalities, back in front of the camera, where he belongs. Channel 2's morning show remains a bit of a mess, but if anyone can clean it up, Green can.

Susie Wargin gets around. In addition to hosting a regular show on KBPI, she provides updates and random banter during The Sports Zoo on KOA and handles assorted sports-reporting duties for the station. And now she's the high school sports reporter for Channel 9 and is doing a more than competent job there. Where does she find the time?
