Kimber Holt Crandall
Kimber Holt Crandall graduated from Brigham Young University in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism and was selected by the Communications Department to speak at the August Convocation.
In 2004, Crandall spent ten days in Peru during October following the distribution of wheelchairs by a Utah based humanitarian group. They also visited a remote village 75 miles down the Amazon River where the group built desks for a school. Part of the footage they shot aired on ABC 4 News.
Crandall won an Emmy and a Gracie Award in 2005 for her documentary on the spread of HIV/AIDS among the children of Zambia called “Mwana Wako Ni Mwana Wagnga—Your Child is My Child,” which she co-produced and hosted. In the summer of 2010, she received a New York Emmy Award, the most coveted peer-recognition symbol of distinction in television, for her story, “Sauce on the Run.” Crandall, a reporter for News 12 Connecticut, was on the scene to cover the story of a delivery truck that spilled two-thousand pounds of Frank's Hot Sauce all over the street as police and hazmat crews responded to clean up the mess.
She does freelance reporting for News 12 New Jersey and writing for Fox News Edge, a Fox affiliate news service.
