Krista Spadaccini is excited to start her career with KREX. She graduated from Boston College in May of 2020, where she double majored in Communications and Applied Psychology. As a Bergen County, NJ native, Krista grew up near NYC, but she is happy to trade the cement city for the mountains.
Before KREX, Krista interned with SportsNet New York, covering stories about the NY Mets, NY Giants, and other NY sports teams. She also interned for CityLine with WCVB in Needham, MA, where she produced a 30-minute episode about black lives and black businesses in Boston. And before the COVID-19 pandemic, Krista interned with the sports department for WHDH 7News in Boston, MA. She says that each internship was a unique experience that made her excited for her future in journalism.
Krista is excited to explore the Western Slope. She cannot wait to try every restaurant, hike every mountain, and get to know the people of the Grand Valley. Anyone with a good story or community event that they would like her to cover can reach out to Krista on social media or through her station email, KSpadaccini@krextv.com
