"I love my job! Where else can you interview the President of the United States, chase wildfires, break high-profile criminal cases, train with Cirque du Soleil, perform with an international dance troop and meet television icons like CBS Anchor Bob Schieffer? I can't think of a more exciting profession! When I was a young girl, I dreamed of becoming a journalist. I watched Barbara Walters and wondered when I would work at 20/20? As proof, I was the first anchor of Billinghurst Middle School's Bighorn News Network. Those were the days." -- Kristen Remington
Kristen grew up right here in Reno. After graduating from McQueen, she studied Broadcast Journalism and Communications in the Entertainment Industry at the University of Southern California. She graduated from USC with honors in 2002. Go Trojans! Kristen joined the KTVN Channel 2 News team in January of 2003 and anchors the 5, 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. newscasts Monday through Friday.
Traveling to Washington, D.C. for an exclusive interview with President Obama is her greatest career accomplishment; however, her most memorable story was meeting a little boy with anemia. While reporting Garrett's story, she learned she has a special blood type compatible with ill children and cancer patients. It was an honor for her to watch him receive her blood donation.
Kristen is married and a busy mother of two. When she is not chasing a toddler or changing diapers, you will find her either emceeing an event or shooting a story for one of her franchise segments: Someone 2 Know and Money Watch Q&A. She also supports a host of non-profits including United Blood Services, Alert ID and Think Kindness. She has served on the Truckee Meadows Law Enforcement Chaplaincy board, as well as the Local Emergency Planning Committee.
