For 15 years, Kristen Remington has called the Channel 2 News studio her second home. The Emmy award winning Evening Anchor and Health Watch reporter started at KTVN in 2003 after graduating with honors from the University of Southern California. However, the former "Miss Nevada Teen USA" grew up right here in Reno! She graduated from McQueen before studying Broadcast Journalism and Communications in the Entertainment Industry at USC. She has since earned an Edward R. Murrow Award, two Associated Press Awards and a national Gracie Award for her work.
Kristen proudly represented Nevada as one of seven reporters - from around the country - to interview President Obama inside the White House. While her coverage in Washington, D.C. marks one of her greatest career accomplishments, her most memorable story centered around a little boy with anemia. As Kristen shared Garrett's story, she learned she has a special blood type crucial for sick children and cancer patients. It was an honor for her to watch him receive her blood during one of her regular donations. Kristen was also honored on the same stage as Jane Pauley for her 'Breast Cancer 2 Bikini' half-hour special. She followed a group of cancer survivors for six months as they worked to reclaim their bodies after treatment. The end result was a fitness competition.
When the married, mother-of-two is not at soccer practice or swim lessons, you will likely find Kristen working out or emceeing events. From a fitness competition to a marathon, she enjoys being active. "Health is Wealth" she always says, especially after her husband fought Leukemia while she was pregnant.
Kristen has served on a number of boards including the Truckee Meadows Law Enforcement Chaplaincy, the Local Emergency Planning Committee and Think Kindness. The Nevada Women's Fund named Kristen a "Woman of Achievement" and she was honored to receive the "20 Under 40" award through the Young Professionals Network. Kristen has also been voted "Best Local Anchor" seven times by northern Nevadans in the Reno News & Review.
