Kristin Hosfelt

Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5, 6 and 11. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.

In 2017, her investigation on lead pipes in Medford's water system was named Best News Series by the Oregon Association of Broadcasters. When Kristin is not sharing the news, she's traveling, hunting down the best burrito, or buried in a Jodi Picoult novel. She's also a Green Bay Packers shareholder; if you see her out and about she'd be happy to tell you the story of how a California girl became a cheesehead.
