My name is Kristen Swiger, and I am a 23-year-old December 2011 graduate from LSU with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Communication Studies. I interned at WBRZ the fall semester of my junior year, and I worked part-time as part of the production crew during the newscasts for three years. During the summer of 2011, I interned at WWL -TV in New Orleans. I just came from a Business Development Specialist position in Shreveport, Louisiana at Blanchard Walker O’Quin & Roberts, and I am now the Marketing Coordinator/Associate for Goodwyn Mills & Cawood in Montgomery, Alabama. I love being in front of the camera, but I also enjoy doing behind-the-scenes production work.
I am originally from Gulf Shores, Alabama, and I am the oldest of four children. My three younger brothers are all very athletic, which led to my interest in sports at college. My parents are originally from Louisiana, and they both graduated from LSU. My dad’s interest in broadcast journalism helped to realize how much I love being in the center of the news world. I am an avid Saints fan, and have attended all of the home games every year for about 4 years, minus the season when they won the Superbowl. I enjoy anything having to do with the water and warm weather, and I love the outdoors, reading and exercise in my spare time.
My family means everything to me, and they are my main support system. They have showed me that we are capable of getting through anything after losing our house and our business in the same day during Hurricane Ivan. I am a hard worker, I learn fast and I care about the quality of work that I turn out. I love to travel, but the only country I’ve been to is China. I can try new things and venture out into the unknown. I love sports, especially football, and the New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers are my teams.
