SPOKANE, Wash. - KHQ-TV, the NBC affiliate in Spokane, WA is pleased to announce a multi-year contract extension with anchor Stephanie Vigil. The agreement solidifies the region's longest tenured anchor team and signifies further stability at Spokane's legacy television station. In addition to anchoring KHQ's 5:00pm, 6:00pm, and 11:00pm newscasts, Vigil will also helm the weeknight edition of FOX First at Ten on KAYU-TV.

"In an age of evolving media, it's reassuring to know Stephanie will continue to serve Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho viewers for years to come," remarks Patricia McRae, KHQ's President and General Manager. "Stephanie has been a cornerstone to our success over the years. Now we're positioned to leverage her popularity with the viewers on multiple platforms in new and unique ways."

Vigil has been a staple on KHQ for 13 years. Already an Edward R. Murrow and Emmy award winning journalist in Sacramento, CA, Vigil came to Spokane as anchor of the morning news. Together with Dan Kleckner, Vigil later moved to the evening newscasts where she has built an extremely loyal following. The mother of two has been named "Best News Anchor" in the Inlander's "Best of the Inland Northwest" poll for the past 5 years, and was named "Best News Anchor" by Spokane Magazine for 3 years running.
