Kim Christiansen 9 News
In June 2017, when Kim Christiansen was named the latest lead anchor of 9News following the retirement of Adele Arakawa, media types wondered if she would be able to maintain the station’s ratings supremacy, which dates back to the 1970s. Turns out she could. But after a year in the outlet’s most prominent role, she remains exceedingly modest and incredibly honest about her accomplishments, as well as her insecurities, as she makes clear in the following in-depth interview.
Christiansen admits that the outlines of her story seem too perfect to be true. She came of age in Arvada and was named Miss Colorado in 1980 in part because of a skill she hasn’t had much of an opportunity to show off lately: baton twirling. Five years later, after earning a journalism degree from the University of Colorado Boulder, she was hired by 9News and has been there ever since.
Dig deeper, though, and you’ll find a tale of perseverance that reveals the grit beneath the glamorous exterior. Christiansen was hired as a writer, not an on-camera personality, and it took years of effort, and a willingness to battle for each step up the ladder, before she was finally allowed to become a regular on the anchor desk. She credits former 9News anchor Ed Sardella, who became a mentor (and tough taskmaster) while she was still at CU Boulder, with helping her along the way, even though she was strong enough to ignore his advice at the outset of her career.

Kim Christiansen Denver
When asked What growing up in Arvada was like for her This is what she had to say.
I can’t imagine a more idyllic environment to grow up in. Arvada was very much a small town when I grew up there, and I still feel like it’s a small town in a lot of ways. You knew every single neighbor, and I still remember the neighbors I grew up with. Ironically, I still bump into some of the people I grew up with. We always say that the people who grew up on the west side of town — Arvada, Golden, that whole area — might leave for a while, and I did. I lived in Denver for, I don’t know, fifteen years at least. But you always come back. And there you are in the King Soopers, where you push the buggies and see them and say, “Hi!”
I love that side of town. I think the older you get, the more you appreciate it. And the fact that it’s sort of still a small town and you see the mountains every day is wonderful. There are some good, hardworking people there, and I remember all kinds of crazy things about growing up there, like every kid does. Having water fights, playing hide and seek. I was a baton twirler, and people will tell you they saw me twirling my batons in front of my parents’ house every single day of the year. They will all remind you of me out there practicing because that’s what I did. I thought it was going to be a long-term career [laughs].
