Hello! My name is Kayla Galloway and I am an assignment editor at FOX40 News in Sacramento, CA. Thank you for visiting my website! A little bit about me — I have a passion for news and all things journalism. I recently graduated college and began my professional journalism career last year. I feel very lucky to work in an industry where I can do something I love everyday.
I graduated in May 2016 from Sonoma State University with a degree in communication and media studies with a minor in political science. After I graduated college, I began my career with the Vacaville Reporter, a daily newspaper in Solano County. I covered the county court system and spent most of my days listening to hearings and trials and writing about what I heard. It was fascinating to say the least.
During my college career, I was news editor of my university’s student-run newspaper, the Sonoma State STAR — something that greatly influenced my future goals and aspirations.
In March 2017, I made the transition from print journalism to television news and am loving every minute of it. Despite the drastic change, TV news offers more immediacy and urgency than print — and that’s what I’m enjoying most so far.
I created this website while I was in college to showcase my written work from both my professional and college journalism career. I have a passion for writing and hope to continue pursuing that passion despite my transition into television news.
