Eagle, Point, Ore. — A flyover by the Air National Guard kicked off 4th of July celebrations in Eagle Point. Families lined the streets for a parade Monday morning featuring local businesses, classic cars, law enforcement, and our men and women in uniform.
Cowboy hero, Robert Borba and his family were among those featured in this year’s parade. We introduced you to Borba on NBC5 News last month after he roped a suspected bike thief at the local Wal-Mart. Live music and a fireworks show will take place in Eagle Point Monday night.
Executive Producer Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5 and 6. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.
She came to KOBI-TV/NBC5 from Bangor, Maine where she was the evening news anchor. Kristin has won multiple journalism awards including Best Feature Reporting in the State of Maine. 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.
