A New York City native, Melissa Colorado comes to KARE from KOAT in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Colorado (pictured, above right), who will be featured on "KARE 11 Sunrise," also worked as a freelance video journalist for WPIX in New York City.

The new hires started about the same time veteran reporter Scott Seroka left the station.

Seroka, who was a reporter for for seven years at KARE 11, left the station earlier this month.
