Harford joins Sky-Hi News as reporter
Sky-Hi News has added a new reporter to its editorial team.
McKenna Harford, a Texas native, began her position on Monday, relocating to Grand County from Kansas.
Harford will cover the Fraser Valley and the two major resorts in the county, Winter Park Resort and Granby Ranch, along with general assignment reporting.
“I believe journalism is important in building communities and connecting people,” said Harford. “There’s something really powerful in getting to hold people to account and shine light on subjects, to educate people and start conversations.”
A graduate of the University of Kansas, Harford has a bachelor’s degree in journalism along with a degree in global and international studies. As a reporter and news editor at the University Daily Kansan, she captured national honors for stories written on gun control and the culture of sexual assault.
Harford described herself as an “Army brat,” moving to several different locations around the country in her youth. She finally settled with her family in San Antonio, Texas, before leaving for college in Kansas.
“We are delighted to have McKenna as part of our team,” said Bryce Martin, editor of Sky-Hi News. “McKenna’s talent, passion and drive matches with our commitment to providing high-quality journalism. She will be an asset to our newsroom.”
In her free time, Harford enjoys hiking, cooking, reading, watching documentaries and listening to podcasts. She lives in Granby with her boyfriend, Hayden Hill, and her Betta fish, Thea.
