Kimberly Kolliner is a weekday reporter, weekend weather anchor for Fox26 News in Fresno, CA.
A Los Angeles native, she is thrilled to be back in the Golden State after two years away in the Pacific Northwest. During her time there, she worked as a do-it-all multimedia journalist, fill-in news anchor and weather anchor in Medford, Oregon.
She was the reporter at the frontlines of the devastating Carr Fire in 2018 and Chetco Barr Fire in 2017. She also investigated illegal marijuana mailing operations done by teens, and the unusual money allowances of the county administrator.
Kimberly’s mother is from Ecuador and was raised bilingual. She decided to further her mastery of the language by double majoring in Spanish Translation and Interpretation and Broadcast Journalism at the University of Arizona. She graduated summa cum laude and received the school’s Broadcast Journalism Award.
During last year as a student she was hired as the sole student employee to host and produce the student segment “UA+”, broadcast in southern Arizona on PBS.
Upon graduation, she spent a year and a half honing her social media skills at an LA marketing company before making the move to Oregon to start her journalism career.
When Kimberly is not reporting and tracking the latest storms she loves to explore the outdoors and couldn’t be more excited to have Yosemite National Park right in her backyard.
