Heather Rowe, nightly news anchor for KOLD-TV channel 13 in Tucson, will be the featured speaker at the annual The Women of Quail Creek Membership Luncheon October 31. Ms. Rowe will discuss issues behind the scenes of the broadcast industry including the pressures of journalism that often lead to challenges in the personal lives of broadcasters. She will share information about how changes in broadcasting have put some journalists in jeopardy and the negativity that sometimes comes with the position of being in the public spotlight.
A native Arizonan, Rowe joined KOLD-TV after holding anchor positions in Colorado and Washington and has become a popular local news personality. She is known not only for her reporting, but also her continual support for causes related to animal protection and adoption. She is an Emmy award winning reporter and is the recipient of four Edward R. Murrow Awards for investigative reporting.
During the membership luncheon, TWOQC President Carol Mutter will provide remarks pertaining to the accomplishments of the organization throughout the past year.
