Christin Ayers

CHRISTIN AYERSChristin Ayers is a general assignment reporter for KPIX 5 News.

Ayers is excited to return to Northern California, where she was born and raised. Ayers grew up in Sacramento and trained to be a journalist in the Bay Area.

She received her bachelor’s degree from Sarah Lawrence College in New York and her master’s in journalism from the University of California, Berkeley.

Ayers also studied literature and media at Oxford University in England.

Her journalism career began in Missoula, Montana, where she covered everything from blizzards to wildfires, and won a number of awards and honors, including a regional Edward R. Murrow award and Montana Broadcaster of the Year.

Most recently, Christin worked in Denver, Colorado, covering stories like the Democratic National Convention and the bizarre Balloon Boy saga. Her work on exposing use of a designer drug called K2 led to the introduction of legislation banning the substance in Colorado.

Christin’s most memorable interview was with President Barack Obama during Montana’s presidential primary. When she is not working, Christin loves traveling, trying new restaurants and hanging out with her cat Angel, her Jack Russell Terrier Oliver and her mom, sisters and little brother Dennis.
