Anne State

It was announced last night on the KOIN 11 o’clock news that anchor Anne State was leaving the station, effective immediately.  Jeff Gianola said Ms. State was stepping down from her co-anchor position to care for her ailing parents full-time, and that “We understand and support Anne’s decision,” and wish her “the very best .”  On Ms. State’s Twitter page profile, she says her father suffers from blindness and her mother, from Alzheimer’s disease.

Before coming to Portland, Ms. State was at WITI in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  She joined KOIN anchor Jeff Gianola in August 2014.  Together, they hosted the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts. In her statement, she says, “I appreciate the support that I have received from many wonderful people at KOIN,” State says in the press release.  “I am so grateful for their support and understanding of this decision.”
