KREM reporter DanaMarie McNicholl only joined the station last August, but she’s already saying goodbye


McNicholl recently won the Miss Washington title which means that for the next year, she’ll be cutting ribbons at supermarket openings, speaking at service clubs luncheons across the state and, of course, making a run for the Miss America title.

So it’s “see ya” to the news grind for awhile for the veteran pageant competitor (she’s been doing this since she was 14).

And yes, it’s bittersweet. It’s always bittersweet.
“If you couldn’t already tell today was really special. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off my media tour! It was bitter sweet saying goodbye to my @krem2 family who I have loved working with every single day,” she said in an Instagram post.

And of course, the Tegna station is going to make sure we know where she works – when she’s not off pageanting.
