Best Local News Anchor

Maggie O'Mara, KTVB

What would our mornings be without Maggie? Along with Doug Petcash, O'Mara swamps the morning news competition—and always with a cheery disposition. It's hard to fathom she's been anchoring in Boise for 16 years—nearly all of them as a Boise Weekly readers' favorite.

2nd Place: Dee Sarton, KTVB Channel 7—The definition of a local TV veteran, Dee Sarton has been on the air in the Gem State for more than three decades. She has won nearly every broadcast journalism award possible, anchored every iteration of news program at KTVB and helped find homes for hundreds of foster children through her regular "Wednesday's Child" segments.

3rd Place: Michelle Edmonds, KIVI Channel 6—Don't let her smile deceive you, evil-doers. Michelle Edmonds is one of the best interviewers in town. She has been at KIVI-TV's anchor desk since 2004, is the face of multiple charitable causes and even tripped the light fantastic in a Boise version of Dancing with the Stars.
