BONNEVILLE News-Talk KSL-A-F/SALT LAKE CITY “UTAH’S MORNING NEWS” co-host GRANT NIELSEN will retire from hosting duties in MARCH after almost 22 years co-hosting mornings with AMANDA DICKSON. NIELSEN will continue to contribute to KSL in various dayparts. BRIAN MARTIN, host of “UTAH’S NOON NEWS” and morning news anchor with NIELSEN and DICKSON, will take over co-host duties for the morning show.
MARTIN said, “I realize I have enormous shoes to fill, but I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity to help grow the institution that GRANT and AMANDA have created. To work with AMANDA to deliver news to Utahns driving into work each morning is something I will never take for granted.”
NIELSEN said, “I will miss working with AMANDA every morning … but I will not miss the 3a wake-up call! I look forward to listening to BRIAN and AMANDA and I know that UTAH’S MORNING NEWS is in good hands. I am excited for new opportunities.”
