23ABC News

Multimedia Journalist


Grace is your Bakersfield Neighborhood News Reporter!

Grace Laverriere joined the 23ABC team in September 2023 as a Multimedia Journalist covering the city of Bakersfield. Grace joined us after her graduation from Suffolk University in Boston, where she achieved a bachelor of science in broadcast journalism.

Grace’s passion for journalism began in high school when she interned at her local daily newspaper in her hometown of Biddeford, Maine. Writing stories, uplifting community voices, and creating connections with people in her community. The experience made her feel like she had found what she was meant to do and looked forward to going to work every day. She followed that passion into college and is very excited to be part of the team at 23ABC!

Although Grace is new to the West Coast, she is eager to get to know the people of Kern County and create deep ties to Bakersfield as their neighborhood reporter. She believes journalism is a powerful tool to connect with people and share their unique perspectives and experiences.

In her free time, Grace likes to cook, hike, read, and journal, and she especially loves live music. Her favorite concert memory is when she and her Dad saw Stevie Nicks in the fall of 2022!
