    I can remember 50 below wind chill weather as a kid growing up in Willmar, Minn. I know parts of Alaska may get that cold, so I feel right at home here in the Land of the Midnight Sun! This is my twenty-second year working in television news. Watching news in high school I was […]

    Growing up in Minneapolis in a family with a rich history of reporting the news, I caught the journalism bug at the tender age of 5. There’s a picture of me holding a spoon, pretending to report the “breaking news” that Santa was about to arrive from the Christmas tree. My grandfather owned a small-town […]

    I grew up in Southern California and as an avid outdoorsman, I love fishing, hiking, skiing, and many other outdoor sports where it’s pretty important to know the weather. For as long as I can remember, monitoring the weather has been an exciting part of my life. And I love to talk. So it was only natural for me […]

    I’m one of those lucky people doing exactly what I’d hoped while growing up in East Meadow, New York. As a graduate of the University of Maryland, I spent many memorable summers lifeguarding at country clubs on Long Island and as an usher at Shea Stadium for the New York Mets. I thought cool jobs were a good idea so […]

    Alaska truly is the Last Frontier of great storytelling. Although I’ve been a reporter in Alaska since 1988, my “to do” list of stories is ever a work in progress. Whether it’s finding ways around the extreme weather or geographical challenges, or creative applications of new technology or ancient traditions, Alaskans are always pushing into […]

    The people are what make Alaska great; the natural beauty wildlife are just a bonus! I grew up in Nikiski, AK and love being able to share stories and current events with my family, friends and community before they start their day. On Daybreak, I can share my love for a good cup of coffee […]

    I’m a Montana girl, born and raised. I was born in Sidney, Montana but when I was 6 my family moved to Whitefish. It’s a ski town, but I don’t ski or snowboard; I am fond of ice skating and sledding. Curling up with a cup of chai tea and reading a good book is […]

    “If you love it so much, why don’t you move there?” I honestly don’t remember who said it, but for years the question never left the back of my mind. So, in September of 2013, I embarked on a road trip across the continent to fulfill a dream of living in Alaska and a career […]

    As an Anchorage native I am excited to cover the issues that matter most to my community, friends and family. My dad was a member of the U.S. Air Force, and growing up on JBER, my childhood friends and I took pride in being “military brats.” I loved the opportunities the military provided for my […]

    I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska and I am very happy to be back home! As a teenager, I dreamed of becoming a choreographer but quickly learned that my lack of rhythm wasn’t going to get me far. After high school, I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where I met a journalism […]

    by Lauren Maxwell on Jan 20, 1:02

    People sometimes seem surprised when I tell them I have worked for KTVA for 27 years, but only for a minute. Usually they pause and say “That’s great, I knew I’d been watching you for a long time!” It’s difficult to say when my journey as a journalist began. I grew up in suburban Philadelphia […]

    by Shannon Ballard on Jan 20, 1:01

    This Utah girl hasn’t always had a love for writing. Before I discovered journalism, my passion was in the sky. I attended Utah State University, originally for climatology, but eventually made the switch over to broadcast journalism. Best decision I’ve ever made! After graduating, I headed to New York City and dabbled in financial news, […]

    What a great way to start my sports broadcasting career! When I graduated from BYU in April of 2014, I had no idea where I would end up and I really couldn’t have hoped for a better place than Anchorage and specifically KTVA. I grew up just south of Salt Lake City, so I have […]

      After spending the first 18 years of my life in Chicago, I thought I was well prepared for Alaska’s climate. Then on my first day in Anchorage, I saw a moose and realized I may have underestimated just how different the last frontier really is! I’m excited to be reporting for the new KTVA. […]

    Hurricane Sandy changed my life. One-man-banding in the boroughs of New York City in 2012, carrying 30 pounds of equipment on the subway while my fellow residents carried the weight of the world — each one with a story to tell, in hopes that someone would care enough to listen. That string of days of […]

    Like many, I moved to Alaska because of a job. Unlike many, my path to Alaska – and eventually Anchorage – started in the bush. My first trip to Alaska came in 2011, when I landed in Dillingham with 2 suitcases and my dog, Amos. I spent 3 years as Program Director at KDLG Public Radio. It’s […]

      I’m thrilled to be living in the Last Frontier and working in the journalism field. I was born and raised in Midland, Texas, and later moved to the Dallas area. I’ve always loved to write and learn new things, but it wasn’t until I took a newspaper class in high school that I discovered […]

    While moving to Alaska back in 1992 via the state ferry system, a logger returning from the holidays told me, “Alaska will either wrap her arms around you and never let go, or she’ll chew you up and spit you right back down to the lower 48.” Twenty-two years later, she still won’t let go. […]

    I’m a geek and a nerd and have been since I was three years old. One of my earliest memories is when I was three and for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to chew on the end of an extension cord that was plugged into the wall. That was just […]

      I was raised on a dairy farm in a small town in upstate Washington with a population of 634 (which changed to 633 when I left). I had four childhood goals: 1. Avoid any career that involved cows 2. Play in the NFL 3. Play in a band 4. Be on the radio I […]
