Colby Smalzel grew up in the small, seaside town of Cohasset Massachusetts. Colby attended Marymount Manhattan College in New York City as a communications major and theater minor. She took a journalism course as an elective while interning for Entertainment Tonight and the rest is history. Soon thereafter Colby transferred to Emerson college in Boston focusing in Broadcast Journalism.
While at Emerson, Colby produced a morning show on 88.9FM, the #1 college radio station in the country, photographed for the Berklee Beacon, anchored and reported for a number of Emerson Channel shows, interned and anchored at Somerville Cable Access TV and worked as a photographer for Verge Campus and GoodMusicAllDay during her last semester at Emerson L.A.
Colby has lived in New York City, Boston and Los Angeles and now she is thrilled to be in Amarillo, working as part of the news team at ABC7. She is excited about making Amarillo her home and learning all she can about the region, the people, the places and the culture.
