Where is Fox 26 KRIV's Andrea Watkins?

Andrea Watkins to return to Fox 26 KRIV after long absence

Fox 26 KRIV fans have been emailing me two big reporter related questions: Where is Ford Atkinson? And where is Andrea Watkins?

Last month, the Fox owned and operated station said Atkinson retired after being off the air since December.

Watkins also pulled a disappearing act from the station's airwaves and social media around early January. However, as of late, she is tweeting again and says she is returning to duty.

Watkins tweets she is coming back next week, but not on her regular morning shift. Her new shift will be on the 5pm and 9pm newscasts.

Watkins joined the Fox-26 reporting team in 1990, starting as a producer and weekend anchor. She had a public battle with breast cancer in 2011.


  1. Andrea doesn't look well or stable - seems kind of shaky - if meds are involved, perhaps they need to be monitored more closely.
