BIO

468384878“Since the ripe old age of 5, I had that zest for storytelling. With a camera always in tow, my dad never missed an opportunity to capture life as it unfolded with me giving the play by play. :)”

My passion for storytelling at a young age is what dictated my path as a TV Personality and Reporter.

Kristen Kenney is the full time reporter for the UTAH JAZZ, covering both home and away games on Root Sports.

After playing D-1 soccer at the University of Miami, reporting at the London Olympics, and hosting Altered Course on Golf Channel, Kristen joined the┬áRed Bull Global Rallycross series on NBC Network┬áfrom 2013 – 2016.

Her curiosity beyond the sports realm inspired her in 2009 to capture a behind-the-scenes experience while traveling to Africa, in which she contracted malaria and nearly died. The project soon evolved into a 90-minute award-winning documentary┬áTanzania: A Journey Within, and also spawned a non-profit movement Malaika For Life– that raises funds for malaria victims. Her documentary┬áhas received numerous accolades and festival awards. Kristen’s malaria story has been featured on The Doctors. It is AOL’s most watched original story.
