    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 […]

    Weather is my life. I have been forecasting the weather in Alaska since October 2002. I graduated from Western Illinois University in May 2002 with a B.S. in meteorology and a minor in broadcasting. The advent of The Weather Channel in the 80s is what really got me interested in weather. I was the weird […]

    “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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    I’m a homegrown Alaskan who happens to really dislike the cold. People who meet me usually don’t believe I’m from the Last Frontier. I originally got into television journalism thinking only about the word “television.” I’ve always been a pretty shy person, but the minute I had a microphone in my hand and the camera […]

    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, […]

    They say “there’s no place like home” and when you call the majestic state of Alaska home, that statement couldn’t ring more true. For the past few years, I’ve been working as a news anchor and reporter in the Southeast region of the United States. After living in Texas (where I put myself through college […]

    I grew up between my childhood home in West Virginia and Gainesville, Florida,  so that’s just like Anchorage, right? There are really a ton of similarities and I’m excited to explore all the differences. Alaska reminds me of the Mountain State: Both states are rich in natural beauty, resources and adventure! Of course I love […]

    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. I’ve […]

    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 my […]

    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. […]
