Kristen Clarke is featured on Central Texas Living and a contributor to Central Texas News Now.

Kristen believes that storytelling is the heart of journalism. Curious by nature, she’s always asking questions. She has a genuine interest in people and their stories.

She was born and raised in the Chicago area. She graduated from TCU with a B.A. in broadcast journalism, where she was also a TCU Cheerleader and an active member of student media.

In college, Kristen covered TCU Athletics as a sports reporter and anchored the weekly TCU Sports Now show. She also had a radio show, where she co-hosted the Riff Ram Sports Show covering news and events in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

During her junior year of college, she served as a sports intern for CBS11 DFW. The summer before her senior year, she was a work-study student for CBS7 in Midland/Odessa, where she anchored weekend sports.

Kristen loves spending time outdoors and enjoys running, hiking, and being on the water. Even though Texas is home, she likes to keep up with her favorite Chicago sports teams, the Chicago Cubs and the Bears.

Kristen looks forward to meeting new people and exploring all that Central Texas has to offer. You can follow Kristen on Instagram or Twitter or like her on Facebook. If you have any story ideas, send them her way at
