Laura attended Illinois State University and graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. There, she interned at the school’s news station, TV-10, where she helped create an award-winning entertainment show-Ten on 10. While reporting at ISU, Laura earned a 2nd place award for Best News PKG, covering a story about party garbage going green.
After graduation, she wanted to spice things up and moved out to Durango, Colorado. While living in the small mountain town, she helped create and develop a digital media company-4CornersTV.com. While hard at work there, she hosted a show, Laura Schweizer: Weekend Warrior, where she got to do what she loves best-adventure! Laura has been skydiving, whitewater rafting, paragliding, snowboarding and more!
Another passion of Laura’s is fashion, so she packed up and moved to Denver, Colorado where she become the Digital Contributor for the city’s fashion magazine-303 Magazine. She also hosted Denver Fashion Week in 2016 & 2017, and contributed to Running Denver TV-another local digital platform.
After visiting the islands with her family many times, Laura wanted the full experience, and the opportunity to speak to a community so unique in culture. She is not only behind the computer screen, but also hosts the Daily Digital Digest -- the station's only digital segment featured on the KITV4 Instagram page.
