Kristen Hunter - WNCT

Kristen Hunter

Kristen Hunter is one of the latest additions to 9 On Your Side. She joined the team in July 2011 as a General Assignment reporter and Digital Journalist.

Kristen is an East Carolina University graduate. She earned a BS in Communication with a double concentration in Broadcast Journalism and Public Health.

Although she was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Kristen is extremely excited to return to Eastern North Carolina and call it "home" once again.

Prior to working at WNCT, Kristen worked at WJZ-TV in Baltimore as an associate producer.  Her job responsibilities included gathering news stories, writing scripts and managing the overall flow of several of the daily newscasts.  She also was in charge of producing and publishing content to the station's website.

While she loved her job behind the scenes, Kristen's true passion has always been in front of the camera. Her love for journalism started early on in high school, where she had the opportunity to report and anchor for the Baltimore County public school system's local television station.  

Kristen's love for the business grew even more in college where she was able to create, produce, anchor and report for several shows and projects on campus, as well as for ECU-TV.

In her free time Kristen enjoys photography, football (Go Ravens and Pirates!), and spending time at the beach. She also has a huge soft spot for dogs; so don't be surprised if you spot her at one of the local animal shelters.

Kristen looks forward to getting to know each and every one of you! If you have any story ideas or just want to say hello, send her an email at khunter@wnct.com
