Rick Thurtle Anchors Last Newscast For 11 News Colorado

Wednesday night marked the end of an era in Western Colorado broadcasting when 11 News Colorado News Anchor Rick Thurtle ended his many years with KKCO-TV. His last broadcast was at 10:00 p.m.

Thurtle has become a fixture in the Grand Valley community with both his work as the main anchor on the number one newscast on the Western Slope and in the community. "When I started doing this more than 20 years ago my goal was to live all over the country and I have done that," said Thurtle.

"Now the Grand Valley is our home and my wife and I have no plans of leaving here. It is time now to pursue other goals and we look forward to the challenge," he adds.

Thurtle has been hired as a Broker Associate for Century 21 Homestead Realty on Horizon Drive in Grand Junction. He has been working there since October after passing the Colorado state real exam in September.
