Ed Greene, News4 weather and news anchor, has called Colorado home since the early 1970s. His first on-air broadcast journalism job was in radio at KIMN in 1972. Ed began appearing on television in 1976 as weather and news anchor at KMGH. He joined KCNC in 1981 and has worked with the crew at News4 for most of his broadcast career. He loves his job and Colorado’s always-changing weather. In the newsroom, Ed is a leader who sets a positive example for his co-workers and a mentor who takes time and energy for the dozens of students who have worked under his tutelage.
Outside the newsroom, Ed is one of the most recognizable and involved TV personalities in the community. He donates his time to emcee upwards of 70 events a year for local non-profit organizations and is a prominent figure at many local functions. Ed says, “I feel a responsibility to give back to the community. Doing that is what has kept me going all these years. The community has been good to me and in return I donate my time so that local non-profit organizations can raise money and awareness for good causes. I feel it’s the right thing to do.” Ed is the chairman for Men for the Cure, a fundraising effort for breast cancer research. As a survivor of heart disease, Ed has made hundreds of visits on behalf of the cause, and has served as the spokesperson and honorary chair for the American Heart Association. He has been the Spokesperson and Emcee for the Adoption Exchange and the Day for Wednesday’s Child, and has served on the Boards for the Colorado Symphony and the Volunteers of America.
