Kendra Hall has wanted to report since she was about 15 years old. In high school, she shadowed main anchor, Heather Rowe, at KOLD (CBS) in Arizona to learn more about journalism. This is when Kendra fell in love with the field.
Kendra is a graduate from the University of Arizona’s School of Journalism. At 6 feet tall, she played volleyball for the first two years of college, but wanted to focus specifically on journalism. Kendra was born and raised in the sunny Tucson, Ariz. and adores the Sonoran Desert.
To receive more experience in the field of journalism, Kendra studied print journalism throughout college, although she knew broadcast was what she wanted to pursue. She chose to receive more in-depth reporting and writing skills through print education and received broadcast experience through internships at two local stations in Arizona. Kendra’s favorite publication is the New York Times.
Kendra plans to make documentaries on the side of journalism in the future. She received a minor in Special Education and Rehabilitation and hopes to create documentaries on the subject of disability to bring awareness to the treatment of different conditions.
Towards the end of college, through a class called Reporting Public Affairs, Kendra became interested in investigative journalism. She believes that investigative stories are the ones that make a difference in society. She is good at digging deep into the facts and is thrilled to be a part of ABC7’s investigative team.
