Today’s #MediaMonday features Whitney Clark, an evening weekend reporter/anchor from Arizona's Family.
Whitney, time to share:
Tell us your story! How did you get into journalism?
Before I got a job at Arizona's Family in Phoenix, I was a morning anchor at KGUN9 in Tucson. Before that I was a nightside reporter and anchor at the station. I covered everything from breaking crime stories to high-profile immigration cases and I traveled the state to cover the 2016 presidential campaign.
I grew up watching the morning news and have been fascinated with journalism since I was a kid! I love to write, meet people and tell stories. I was an intern at the newspaper in my hometown (the Claremont Courier)... and you could say the rest is history! I eventually decided to make the switch to broadcast while attending the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University.
I was an intern for Arizona's Family while I was in college. Coming back to the Valley has been pretty special for me!
When I’m not working I like…..
I love to explore Arizona, discover new hiking trails, spend time with family and friends, cook (and eat), find new restaurants and travel! I also have a cat named Gertrude McFuzz and I buy her too many toys.
Giving back to the community is also very important to me! I have volunteered with several Tucson-based organizations including Literacy Connects, I was a member of the Junior League of Tucson, Inc. and a board member for the non-profit Our Family Services. I plan on continuing that work in Phoenix!
Anything else you’d care to share…
I'm always looking for a good story and I love to get involved in the community! If there's an event coming up, an issue you'd like me to know about, or you just want to say hi... please email me at email@example.com!
How else can we connect with you?
