Kristin Goodwillie -- Promoted to Anchor
Kristin Goodwillie is currently 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. Her passion for telling stories began as a child when she put pen to paper in search of creating her own children’s books. She loved to let her imagination run wild with fictional characters. It wasn’t until a high school film class in San Diego that she learned how much she enjoyed shooting and editing short films. Kristin would later attend 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 later graduated from CSU 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 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.
