Kristen Crowley

Kristen Crowley is our Traffic Reporter for the WTKR and WGNT morning shows.

Kristen has resided in Hampton Roads since 1999 and is proud to call this area home. Hailing from Michigan, Kristen will tell you that she never pictured a life in morning television (or having to wake up daily at 3:30am!). Her telltale sign that she would be great at reporting the traffic started with an obsession to find the fastest route somewhere and know all of the backroads to get there!

Growing up on a horse farm as a shy kid that tried to avoid speech class in school, the transition into live TV was a progression of life experiences and a workaholic mentality. Using her education in Visual Merchandising and Design Kristen was able to travel for work, ultimately landing her here in Virginia. That journey brought her to the NewsChannel 3 morning team in 2007 and she is honored to be a part of such an amazing and fun morning show.

Kristen makes the most of her local knowledge to report on various lifestyle stories and keep parents busy with the "Parents Corner" segment on WGNT. Kristen has also hosted "Look What's Cooking" on our noon show and "7 city spotlights" for WTKR. You can always catch the latest traffic updates weekday mornings from 5am-7am on WTKR and from 7am-9am on WGNT. The behind the scenes fun continues on Facebook throughout the morning show so join in on the conversation today or follow on Twitter @skycam3traffic.

On a personal note Kristen has been fortunate to showcase her love of food through the hosting of cooking shows, and is actively involved in the restaurant business. Her hobbies and interests include being a mom, working with several chairty groups locally including the Boot Campaign, food and beverage, horses, motorcycles, fashion, interior design, and of course shopping! Kristen resides in Chesapeake,VA with her husband, daughter and all of their family pets, and feels honored to be a military wife and mother in this amazing military community.
