Anne Trujillo2014 Inductee

This year marks Anne’s thirtieth anniversary with KMGH Channel 7 in Denver and, with earlier stints at KSTF in Scottsbluff and KMTV in Omaha, her thirty-second year in the Heartland region. She started out as a general assignment reporter and worked her way to the anchor desk where her unassuming confidence and breadth of experience touch viewers and coworkers with equal impact. She is at home in the studio or field anchoring from a wildfire, a flash flood, or from the Freedom Tower. She’s the type of news anchor who will readily write a simple VO for the nightly newscast or do ‘the big interview’ as a special project: leading by example. Anne is a Coloradan ‘by choice,’ a graduate of Littleton High School and CU Boulder whose love for this state and its residents is evident on and off the camera.

Children’s and women’s issues are important to Anne. She’s served as a board member for numerous organizations, including the Mi Casa Resource Center for Women and Girls, the Board of Hispanic Heroes, the Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation and the Latin American Education Foundation. She supports Centro San Juan Diego, Escuela De Guadalupe, and the American Diabetes Association and St. Vincent Home with her time and energy. In addition, she has been honored with awards and recognition from not only a variety of press and media associations (including NATAS), but also from a plethora of non-profit associations who recognize her ability – and willingness – to make a profound difference. Anne is a community leader, devoting hours of service to organizations that lift up the less fortunate, invest in the under privileged and work to ensure equality for those whose voices aren’t represented. Throughout the state, Anne shines.

Anne lives in the town in which she grew up, and lights the city’s Christmas tree on Main Street every year during the annual holiday lighting ceremony. She met her husband, Mike, while the two worked together at 7News; they are the proud parents of two grown children.
