Kristen Crowley is the Traffic Reporter for WTKR and WGNT and also Co-Anchors WTKR at Noon.

Kristen moved from Michigan to Hampton Roads in 1999 and is proud to call this area home. She joined the WTKR morning team in 2007 and loves everything about her morning family, except the early wake up call! “Coffee and concealer can work some wonders at 4:00am!”

Kristen makes the most of her local knowledge to report on various lifestyle stories and to also help you Beat The Backups. You can catch her traffic updates weekday mornings from 5 AM-7 AM on WTKR Newschannel 3 and from 7 AM-9 AM on WGNT.

The behind the scenes fun always continues on Facebook throughout the morning show so join in on the conversation today or follow Kristen on Twitter @kristencrowley3 for some laughs. “We don’t try to be television personalities on our show, we just try to be ourselves!”

Kristen lives in Chesapeake with her husband, her awesome kids and their dogs! Kristen grew up on a horse farm and enjoys volunteering with several charity groups in the area. She focuses her time on animal and military charities that are near and dear to her heart.
