Kallyn joined the 23ABC News team in June of 2020 as a reporter. She began anchoring a few months later, becoming the weekend morning anchor in early 2021 before becoming the weekday morning anchor in early 2022.
She grew up in Thousand Oaks, CA, before attending Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. She graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism and she is thrilled to stay in sunny California as she starts her journalism career.
Kallyn has completed internships at KSBY-TV and CBS News Network in Los Angeles. She was previously a reporter for The Sonoma Index-Tribune as well.
Her favorite part of being a journalist is the incredible people she gets to meet. With her original weekly segment, Kern's Kindness, her specialty is telling stories of inspiration and goodwill that connect our community.
She is honored to tell Bakersfield’s stories and would love to hear from you if you have a story idea!
In her free time, Kallyn loves trying new restaurants, playing the piano, horseback riding, baking, and hiking. Feel free to email her your favorite local spots to explore!
