Allison Twaits is the newest member to join KFVS12's Heartland News team as one of three Southern Illinois Reporters based in the Carterville Newsroom. She is thrilled to begin working as a multimedia journalist where she will shoot, edit and write all of her stories.
She is a proud graduate of Eastern Illinois University. While in Charleston, Allison worked for WEIU-TV as a reporter, anchor and producer. Always knowing she would one day work in News, she started her journalism career as the city editor for her college newspaper, The Daily Eastern News. It wasn't until she interviewed someone working at WEIU-TV that she realized how much she loved broadcast journalism.
A huge sports fanatic, Allison loves to cheer on the St. Louis Blues, Cardinals, and New York Giants (because of her New Jersey roots). She even holds the title for being the St. Louis Blues Wildest Fan at the age of 7.
In her free time, she enjoys attempting any craft or recipe on Pinterest, thrift store shopping, and spending way too much time with her dog Mims. e-mail Allison.
