Kristin Goodwillie -- Promoted to Anchor
Kristin Goodwillie is the Noon Anchor and MMJ/Reporter at WHAS in Louisville, KY. She came to Louisville after being the Main Anchor at KLSR and the fill-in anchor at KVAL in Eugene, OR. While in Louisville, Kristin is honing her in-depth investigative skills. She forced the Kentucky State Police department to unseal the 2004 case of Julie Boyd. Julie was beaten to death that year on New Years’ Eve. But many believed the man convicted for the crime, was the wrong man. Kristin’s hard work on this case stresses the importance of convicting the right person and keeping the memory of Julie Boyd alive. Kristin’s likability in Louisville has earned her a strong on-air presence.
Kristin attended California State University, Fullerton, giving her the opportunity to travel to the rainforests of Guatemala as a foreign reporter. She shared stories of struggle and hope about the selfless work of Refuge International’s medical mission. Kristin graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Radio/TV/Film.
After college, Kristin landed her first job at KPIC/KLSR/KVAL in Roseburg, Oregon, where she was one of the first reporters on the scene of a mass shooting at Umpqua Community College where she was relied on to report nonstop for days. Her wall to wall coverage and perseverance earned her the Main Anchor spot at KLSR. Kristin is excited about where this broadcast journey will take her as she looks forward to strengthening her visual storytelling skills. In her spare time, Kristin enjoys reading, hiking, and exploring new restaurants. She travels as often as she can and is constantly searching for that next story to tell.
