Hard to believe I've been at KREM for the better part of a decade now. I have some fun and talented people to thank for making work not seem like work.

I'm originally from Denver, Colorado. I received my Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Colorado (whose Buffs are now in the Pac 12!) and started my journalism career in radio as a host and news anchor. My first television job was in Texoma (with viewers in north Texas and southern Oklahoma). I reported in New York, came to Yakima for a chance to anchor the evening news, and then it was on to KREM in June of 2004.

I think my son and I have checked out each and every park in the area. His rule: just bring a ball of some sort. I feel fortunate to be in a place that offers so much outdoor access, with all the perks of a metropolitan area.

Please email me directly with any other questions, concerns, or story ideas at, or follow me on Twitter @KREMSten.
