Blake Jensen Departs KHQ-TV
Blake Jensen graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism from Washington State University in 2009. While in university, he co-anchored Inside the Lines, a sports show on Cable 8 News inspired by ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption.
His first job out of college was as a morning weather anchor position at KNDU-TV (Kennewick’s sister station to KHQ). And after a year, Jensen became a member of the KHQ-TV news team, starting as an anchor and reporter. In 2012, he became the morning weather anchor and two years later was given the role of evening weather anchor.
The award-winning anchor has now announced his departure from the station. Blake Jensen is leaving KHQ-TV after 12 years for a special reason. He has decided to step away from the news industry but hasn’t revealed what he will do next.
While Jensen has decided to step away from the industry, he is not leaving Spokane. He and his family have established themselves in the city and cannot imagine living elsewhere. The anchor is married to Katie Jensen, and they have a son named Brooks William Jensen.
Blake Jensen delivered his last newscast alongside Cory Howard on January 6, 2023. The station bid farewell to him by showing the synopsis of his 12 years at the station.
