Robyn Nance anchors Good Morning Northwest Monday through Friday along with Derek Deis and Mark Peterson.

Robyn has been in Spokane since 1996, a month before ice storm hit. After that “warm” welcome, she and her husband felt initiated to the area, and now consider the Inland Northwest home.

Robyn grew up in Bonne Terre, MO, a small town south of St. Louis. She got her start at the CBS affiliate in Hannibal, MO / Quincy, IL, then spent 6 years at another Spokane station. In 2003, she took advantage of a great opportunity at 4 News Now.

Children are a big part of Robyn’s life. She not only has a degree in Broadcasting, she holds a B.S. in Education. Since the early 90’s, Robyn has served on several boards of directors overseeing organizations serving children. Each week on 4 News Now at 6, you can see Robyn’s Wednesday’s Child stories, featuring children in foster care who need adoptive homes. Her interaction with many of those amazing young people spurred her (along with friend and foster parent recruiter Linda Rogers) to start up Teen & Kid Closet. It’s a specialty shop where children and youth in foster care, poverty or homelessness in Eastern WA and North ID can come and shop for free. To learn more, go to

Robyn has three children (all born here in Spokane), and a stepdaughter, who’s married with children and living in IL. She is also a foster mom. Family is Robyn’s passion, and her favorite thing in the world is spending time with her crew.
