The agreement solidifies the region's longest tenured anchor team and signifies further stability at Spokane's legacy television station.

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.
